Sony’s Music Unlimited Now On iPhone And iPod Touch

Sony, on Tuesday, announced the release of its Music Unlimited app for the iPhone and iPod Touch. The new app is slated to be launched on this Friday, May 25.

This will be the first time that Sony's Music Unlimited app, which is supposedly competing with Spotify, will be available on Apple products, preferably on iPhone and iPod Touch. Previously, the service had already made its mark on Android, PlayStation 3 and Vita, and home theater mediums including Bravia TVs. The app is free for download and can be accessed up to 30 days.

"With the proliferation of connected devices, consumers expect complete access to their digital entertainment and demand a consistent experience regardless of the device," Tim Schaaff, President of Sony Network Entertainment International, said in a statement. "Bringing the Music Unlimited service to iPhone and iPod touch is one of the many ways we are able to reach more music lovers around the world while ensuring the same level of high-quality entertainment that is associated with the overall Sony Entertainment Network experience."

Music Unlimited, unlike Spotify, offers two paid subscription plans. The first plan is for $9.99 per month and the second for $3.99. However, the more expensive plan offers users the freedom to listen to Sony's entire track library (that consists of some 15 million songs) without restrictions.

The cheaper, $3.99 plan, on the other hand, limits users to predetermined channels, which can be skipped without limitations. To listen to individual tracks, Music Unlimited will ask a user to own the track and sync it with Sony's catalogue.

While Music Unlimited now offers its service in 14 countries, Spotify currently offers its services in 15 countries after having added Australia and New Zealand only recently.

"With the addition of the new iPhone and iPod touch app, users with a Basic or Premium subscription can listen to their favorite songs across a number of the most popular connected devices - in and out of the home," said Michael Aragon, Vice President and General Manager of Digital Video and Music Services, Sony Network Entertainment International.

There are a few rumors circulating on the web saying that an iPad app is also in development, according to a Digital Trends report.
