Anyone use Spotify

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

I originally signed up for Spotify premium using a vpn that masked my Cambodian residence but now for the last 3 months I've been signing in without any VPN

So, you're a premium, paid subscriber, or not?

If so, you should be able to use it anywhere.

If you have somehow reverted back to a free account, then you only have 14 days.

Have you "cleared cache" for the app yet?

I use TunnelBear VPN service to easily get around Spotify. I got the same error message. I am a free service subscriber.

Yes, if you really dig Spotify, you should just pay the 6-10$ per month for a premium "location free" subscription.

If like me and you fire it up about twice a month, just use any VPN (Virtual Private Network) service you feel comfortable with.
I'll give ya 500 Riel for it...
