Sony announces partnership with Spotify to replace Music Unlimited service
Sony has teamed up with Spotify to create PlayStation Music, a Spotify-centric streaming service set to replace Sony’s Music Unlimited service. PlayStation Music will house Spotify as its exclusive partner, and will launch in February in 41 different markets including the US, Canada, Mexico and Brazil.
As for Music Unlimited? That service will cease to exist come March 29th, 2015, though Music Unlimited subscribers will get their last month for free beginning February 28th. Music Unlimited will shut down in all 19 countries, though most of them will be included in the 41 markets where PlayStation Music will be featured at launch.
PlayStation users can link their PlayStation IDs to Spotify to ensure the setup process is as easy as possible. The service will launch on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and a number of Xperia smartphones and tablets. If you’d like more information on PlayStation Music’s release, head to the Spotify link below to sign up for updates.
If you don’t yet have a Spotify Premium account, now may be a good time to try it. Spotify is currently offering a free 60-day Premium trial if you sign up now. This is a great way to test out the service at no cost before you replace your Music Unlimited subscription.
