Music lovers can have access to more than six million songs with Sony’s new cloud-based streaming music service, “Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity.” However the service is currently only available to users in the U.K. and Ireland.
Sony said the Music Unlimited library includes songs from all four major labels: Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, Warner Music Group, and EMI Music. Throughout 2011, Sony will launch Music Unlimited in other countries including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, New Zealand, and the U.S.
In addition to devices like Sony’s PlayStation 3, Internet-connected TVs, and Blu-ray players, Music Unlimited can be accessed via PCs and mobile devices. It is an expansion of “Video On Demand powered by Qriocity,” another streaming service from Sony that was launched earlier this year.
“Seamless accessibility to content through these fresh user experiences will enrich Sony’s network service offerings and add value to the unique aspects of Sony’s network-enabled products,” Kazuo Hirai, Sony’s president of networked products and services group, said in a statement.
Another great product creation through the innovative means of cloud streaming!
