While parts of Europe have had Music Unlimited, the cloud-based music streaming service that’s “powered by Qriocity”, for some time now, those of us in the US have been missing out. Today, Sony is ready to roll out the service to internet-connected Bravia televisions, Blu-ray Players and the PS3.
Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity is a new digital music streaming service coming to the PS3 and other select Sony devices. The service comes in two subscription-based plans.
Basic, which costs $3.99 monthly, gives user access to ad-free radio stations and personalized channels that can be categorized by things like genre, era even your mood using SensMe (which has been previously seen on the PSP).
Premium for $9.99 a month, lets users listen to every full song on demand, create playlists and access premium “Top 100” channels. There’s also a one-time, free 30-day trial of Premium access.
Music Unlimited also lets users sync their existing music and playlists from a number of music services, including iTunes.
Look out for it when it launches later today and in the mean time, check out this video demonstration by SCEA’s VP of Network Operations, Eric Lempel:
