Spotify is reportedly planning a major change that will put it in direct competition with Netflix (NFLX) and other video streaming services. According to Business Insider, the on-demand music service is interested in expanding to become an on-demand video service alongside its music offerings. Spotify is also said to be looking for partners that will help it fund and create exclusive content such as original TV series, similar to how Netflix has found success in producing its own content with its hit show House of Cards. Spotify is used by more than 20 million people, and has over 1 million paid subscribers in the U.S. and more than 5 million worldwide.
