Spotify Said Expanding Pandora-Like Web Radio Worldwide

Spotify Ltd., getting a jump on Internet radio leader Pandora Media Inc., is close to agreements with record labels to offer free mobile radio outside the U.S., said three people with knowledge of the talks.

Spotify seeks to offer ad-supported mobile radio everywhere it operates starting in April, said the people, who sought anonymity because the plans aren’t public. The London-based company said it now offers a Web radio product to mobile users in the U.S. and desktop users in 20 countries.
