Sony announced a new cloud-based digital music streaming service called "Music Unlimited," that gives music lovers access to millions of tracks stored and synced with your devices," said Fujio Nishida of Sony. The service "will be going live by the end of the year," he said.
Music Unlimited joins video-on-demand service of Sony's Qriocity service, which now sports a two-part tagline: "Music that follows you. Instant blockbuster movies."
In demonstrations of the service, a remote control was used to select music, including selecting various genres such as classical and alternative; eras divided by decade; "premium" content; and music delivered by Sony's SenseMe technology to pick music based on a person's mood. Users will be able to "discover music through channels personalized to their tastes," he added. "There's no need to manage music files. Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity will change the way we all enjoy our music."
