Music Unlimited: Sony's Streaming Service Hits The iPhone

When it comes to streaming music, you've got all kinds of subscription services to chose from these days. Music Unlimited is Sony's offering, and the iOS app has just landed in the iTunes App Store.

What does it do?

It works very similar to other similar services. You can stream music to your iPhone for $4.99/month for a basic plan or $12.99/month for premium. The cheaper plan lets you chose from different channels that you can customise by liking or disliking tracks, and you can upload your personal library by matching it with Sony's. The premium option, of course, gives you no-holds-barred listening to all 15 million available songs.

Why do we like it?

One of the advantages of Music Unlimited is that it's offered across a lot of Sony hardware -- Android, PlayStation 3, PS Vita, and Sony TVs and Blu-ray players. It also boasts music from all the major labels, not just Sony's own music division. And both of those are very good reasons to consider Music Unlimited. If you're interested, Sony is currently giving out a free 30-day trial for the premium version. [Sony]

    I was excited when i first saw this as I have a PS3 and Sony TV so the though of one fee to have music on my computer, TV and phone seemed like a good deal and for only 4.99/month its a bargain. But unfortunately the implementation is terrible. I could not get past the registration of the TV to my account, the iPhone app is so fussy about network connectivity you basically have to be on wifi and the non-premium account offers such restrictive access to the music its useless.
