Spotify to start streaming movie service in U.S., as well? Although the CEO of the company has denied it, Crunch is reporting that as Spotify continues its efforts to launch in the U.S., it will also offer a movie streaming service.
Industry sources say Spotify has already negotiated deals with the major movie studios.

The deals are also likely to be worldwide, meaning European users (at least) would have access to the movies.

CEO Daniel Ek did call the story inaccurate, going as far as to say:

No it aint true. Media these days are funny. Soon Ill be reading that Spotify is launching a space rocket.


Crunch makes sure to note, however, that Ek has denied may stories in the past in similar fashion, all of which were true.

Making Spotify different from the competition is that the company will get the movies early, around the same time hotels for PPV
