The lack of Spotify on Roku is unfortunate. I have seen rumors, but no Spotify. Spotify premium is our primary music source, with Tune-In Radio in second. So the iPhone and iPod will continue to get a lot more use than Roku, for music.

Have you contacted Spotify about the issue?

Spotify streams in the OGG Vorbis format, which is not supported by Roku. If you want to listen to Spotify on the Roku you need to convert to MP3 on your computer and stream over HTTP to the Roku. I suppose it would be possible to configure a channel that could provide a UI for Spotify, but the main problem is that you need a transcoding server running while you listen.
The most comparable alternative available on Roku is MOG.
If Spotify decides to offer MP3 streaming sometime in the future, then a dedicated Roku channel would be possible.
