How to Listen to Spotify in Canada

I have used both free and Premium. If you don’t care about listening on your phone or tablet then just go with free version. The ads are not that bad. if you want to listen on the go and with your mobile device than you need premium ( 9.99/month ) plan.

You get a free trial of the Premium when you sign up.

A proxy service is one that re-directs your computers DNS settings. You are literally telling the internet what country you are in… So when you set up a US Proxy it will look like you are in United States.. This is needed to get access to sites like US Netflix, Spotify and Hulu, etc.

The service I use and recommend is UnBlockUS but any US proxy service will work.
I liked that there was not only a free trial but for the free trial you don’t have to give any payment information til you actually purchase. You get a free 7 day trial when you sign up. At the end of your 7 days they will send you an email asking you if you to buy and then you pay the 4.99 a month with Paypal or credit card.

NOTE: When you set up a US Proxy you can now access other US Only Content like American Netflix, US SiriusXM, Pandora, Hulu Plus, Vudu, etc

Here is What You Need to Get Spotify in Canada:

1) A US Proxy Service ( free 7 day trial no credit card required) Recommended: UnBlockUs
This will “tell” Spotify servers into thinking you are in US. You basically pay 4.99 a month and input new DNS in your router. That’s it. The process from start to finish shouldn’t take you more than 5 MINUTES.

2)A Spotify Account
Sign up with Spotify. I would try the free account first. You get free trial of Premium and you can test run features and see if you like or need to use the paid version.

3) Device to Access and Listen to Spotify
This includes laptop and computers, iPad, iPhone, Android smartphones and Tablets ( ie. Nexus 7), some Smart TV’s, Roku, WDTV Live, Apple TV, Pretty much all of these have Netflix application pre-installed or easily downloaded. I use on my phone and tablet and connect to bluetooth speakers.

Step 1- Set up US Proxy
Set up a proxy server that makes it look like you are in US and be able to access “US only” content.
As mentioned I have been using UnBlockUS and happy with service. Never had an issue or had to call tech support in 4 years, Its stable and does not affect your internet connection.

2) Sign Up for Spotify

3) Sign into Spotify on your computer or other device.

Have fun!
