After Sucking at Streaming Music, Sony Calls Spotify…


Sony’s Music Unlimited streaming service doesn’t have a very high profile. The service is a tough sell compared to global services that are easier to use.

So why fight Spotify when you can join them?

Sony Music Unlimited will close on March 29th.  Then it will be replaced by “Playstation Music“. <!–/*

Both Spotify Premium and free Spotify accounts will be supported.
