The world currently makes use of music streaming services such as Spotify but there is now a new competitor in town. Sony has already announced its unlimited music streaming service a few months ago but only now will the service be made available to a country which is no other than Japan. Launched today, the Sony Music Unlimited costs 1480 Yen a month with the price for the international to be announced later.
Sony Music Unlimited currently carries more than 10 million songs on which each and every one of them are available on the cloud. These songs will be from major labels such as EMI Music Japan, Sony Music Entertainment, Universal Music LLC and a few others. The catalogue will expand in time so that more music can be added. In addition to that, much like Spotify, Sony Music Unlimited is also available through mobile devices such as compatible Sony devices.
Moreover, with features such as offline playback, Sony Music Unlimited might just be the right competitor to Spotify. Should it be able to reach untapped Spotify markets, it is expected for this service to be used a lot more as compared with the latter. Hopefully, the price of the subscription will be just as low so that it would remain attractive.
