Music Unlimited, formerly Qriocity (pronounced as curiosity),[1] is a trading name for Sony Corporation's on-demand streaming music[2] service which is licensed and powered by Omnifone.[3] A video streaming service with the name has been available in the United States since February 2011. Sony expanded the service into European markets at the end of 2010.[4] The service is part of the Sony Entertainment Network and is integrated into the PlayStation 4 console.

History[edit]

Rebranding and unification[edit]

In 2012, Qriocity was integrated with the Sony Entertainment Network or 'SEN' and renamed Music Unlimited.[5]

As of January 2012, Music Unlimited has over 1 million active users and 15 million songs.[6] As of 30 November the service offers streaming of more than 18 million songs.[7] At the launch of PS4, the service has over 22 million songs [8]

Services[edit]

Music[edit]

The music service, branded as Music Unlimited,[9] was launched in December 2010 in the United Kingdom and Ireland. It launched in the United States in early January 2011, and in France, Italy, Germany and Spain in late January 2011. It launched in Australia and New Zealand in February 2011.

The service was suspended worldwide in April 2011 along with the PlayStation Network outage, but resumed in mid-May.[10]

On 16 June 2011, a free to download Music Unlimited Android app was released.[11]

In May 2013, Sony Music Unlimited expanded its service into Brazil, raising the total number of countries available to 19.[12]
