Streaming services and your business: Can you stream Spotify or Netflix for Customers?

Members have been inquiring about whether they can stream Spotify or Netflix for their customers. Unfortunately, the answer is no. When you sign up for or use the Spotify or Netflix service, you agree to abide by their specified terms and conditions.

Spotify:

According to Spotify’s terms and conditions, the service is intended for personal, non-commercial use only. This means that you are not permitted to publicly broadcast or play Spotify in venues such as bars, restaurants, or accommodation establishments. Spotify’s terms state, “subject to your compliance with these terms, we grant you limited, non-exclusive, revocable permission to make personal, non-commercial use of the Spotify Service and the Content.”

Netflix:

Netflix’s terms and conditions (section 4.2) clearly state that the Netflix service and any content accessed through it are for personal, non-commercial use only. Sharing the service with individuals outside of your household is not allowed unless otherwise permitted by your subscription plan. During your Netflix membership, you are granted a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable right to access the Netflix service and its content. No right, title, or interest is transferred to you, except as stated above. Using the service for public performances is explicitly prohibited.

It’s important to adhere to these terms and conditions to respect the rights and licenses granted by Spotify and Netflix.
