Spotify coming to Virgin Media?

Not sure exactly how this is going to manifest itself, but according to the Telegraph:
A source close to Spotify revealed: “Spotify and Virgin Media are close to concluding a partnership deal. The finer details are not yet known, but Spotify will be offering new tools and content exclusively to Virgin customers as part of the arrangement."
A Virgin Media spokesperson declined to comment on any of its deal negotiations, or shed any more light on when its own music service would launch, but said: “Virgin Media is forging new ground in music and whilst we are currently in talks with numerous parties, we want to ensure that any service provides a truly compelling offering for both consumers and industry."

Well, last time they tried to launch a music service the music industry pulled the plug at the last minute, so it'll be interesting to see how this works in the end...
