You’ll need to get a new music streaming service if you still want to listen to your commercial-free music, and there are plenty of options. However, many of them have increased their prices in recent months so you will have to pay a little more than the last time you bought a new advertising service.
As for the countries where the price will increase, along with the US and the UK, they include Australia, Belgium, France, Spain, Italy, Ireland, Norway, and many others. Overall, Spotify subscribers in more than 50 countries will see their prices increase soon, the company says that existing subscribers will receive an email today and have a grace period of one month before the tour begins.
