Spotify ending on Virgin Tivo on July 4th - WHY?

Spotify on Tivo is an excellent service. Today I got the following message when loading the App on Tivo: " Right now we're making loads of updates to our Virgin TV service to make it easier for customers to find and watch the telly they love.But some of those updates mean we have to say goodbye to the Spotify service on Tivo. This will happen from Monday 4th July. Customers will still be able to enjoy their full Spotify service on any other device."
Which updates mean that Spotify must be withdrawn? Are the technicians unable to achieve this. It can't be as difficult as putting a man on the moon - and that was done in the last century.
Any thoughts?

I guess it boils down to who would pay for the development of the app?  Virgin or spotify?

It "wasn't good enough for their high quality Tivo platform", apparently;

But, if Spotify do not supply an updated version of the app to run on the latest software, what is the choice?

 

 

Nice to be able to post again, after their mistake (removed by the Censorship team).

Might be worth complaining to Spotify too

Or seeing if they agree with Virgin's statement that the app is "not good enough".Smiley Happy
