Part 4. Play Spotify on LG Smart TV using USB Media Player

To play Spotify music on LG smart TV with the methods mentioned above, you may be required to be a Premium subscriber to unlock some exclusives contents and features. If you don't plan to upgrade to Premium, another workaround to listen to Spotify on your smart TV would be playing the actual music files offline by using a USB media player. For this, you'll want to download your favorite Spotify music into playable files without Premium.

Fortunately, ViWizard Spotify Music Converter could let you enjoy Spotify music on LG Smart TV directly without the Spotify app, even you don't have a network connection. ViWizard Spotify Music Converter can provide some special services like downloading Spotify music for listening anywhere and listening to Spotify without the distraction of ads.
