Sony's 'Music Unlimited' On Demand Music Service Coming to iOS

TechRadar reports that Sony is bringing their Music Unlimited service to iOS devices "in the coming weeks".
"We will be launching our music service on iOS in the next few weeks," said Layden, who was speaking at the IP&TV World Forum with TechRadar in attendance.

"We want to be on as many devices for users who want to be part of Music Unlimited."
Music Unlimited is Sony's on-demand all you can listen to music service that costs $9.99 a month. Sony claims to have a global catalog of over 10 million songs that you can listen to on your computer, Android phone, Sony Enabled device, and soon, iOS device. They offer unlimited skips and no ads for the paid service.


Perhaps most interesting is that on the Android version they've introduced offline playback. Users can download their Music Unlimited playlists to their devices and play them even without a wireless signal.

Since Apple does not allow apps with competing technologies or redundant services, I doubt this will happen.


They let spotify in and other music services, why would this be any different?

[*]Give a credit card number to Sony,
[*]Buy music from Sony, or
[*]Expect any online serve from Sony to actually work reliably?

No thanks. I'll stick to buying per song or album. I don't need another monthly fee.

Not once on their promotional site does it mention anything about quality, or even what specific format. Just quantity. Sony have been so wide of the mark with attempts to do digital music in the past, I'm not optimistic.

Funny to see all the comments about the service being overpriced - did you guys look at music videos? On PS3 you can get VidZone and watch an unlimited number of music videos for free. On Apple TV, you have to pay $1.99 for each one.

So I guess it's "Apple = music video fail".
