Spotify on TV

You can play Spotify directly from your TV, or by using your phone, tablet, or desktop as a remote. (Popcorn not included!)

Find below how to play Spotify on the TV.

Note: Some connection types require Spotify Premium.

Check to see if Spotify is one of the apps included with your TV. If it is, you can play Spotify straight from your remote.

Visit Spotify Everywhere for supported devices, or check with the manufacturer.

Don’t worry if your TV’s not listed. Even with older TVs it’s possible to upgrade your entertainment system with a soundbar or streamer that supports Spotify Connect.

Get started

  1. Download Spotify from your TV app store.
  2. Log in one of these three ways to play:
    • With Spotify Connect.
    • With your Spotify email address and password.
      Note: If you usually log in with Facebook, use Spotify Connect to log in instead.
    • With a PIN. Select LOG IN WITH PIN. Then, on your phone or computer, go to and enter the pin you see on your screen.

You can listen to Spotify on your TV by using the Spotify app on your phone as a remote.
