Ministry of Sound playlists aren't exclusive to Apple Music anymore
What you need to know
- Ministry of Sound playlists are no longer exclusive to Apple TV.
- They had been exclusive as of October last year.
- The playlists are back on Spotify, Deezer, and YouTube.
Apple Music's exclusive access to Ministry of Sound playlists has come to an end as spotted by Music Ally (via Cult of Mac).
The first Ministry of Sound playlist to be exclusive to Apple Music appeared on October 4 2018, but as of right now they're starting to reappear on services like Spotify, Deezer, and even YouTube.
When Ministry of Sound first removed the playlists from Spotify it didn't actually delete them, making it easier to return to the platform when needed.
We don't know whether this was always the plan or if something has changed recently. Apple Music and Spotify in particular have become fiece competitors, although the playlists' return to Deezer and YouTube may be less of a concern for Apple.
