Music Unlimited, formerly Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity (pronounced as "curiosity"),[1] was an on-demand music streaming service provided by Sony,[2] and powered by Omnifone.[3]

The service was part of the Sony Entertainment Network, and expanded into European markets by the end of 2010.[4] By January 2012, it had over 1 million active users and 15 million songs.[5] At the launch of the PS4, the service has over 22 million songs. [6]

Sony launched a new streaming service, PlayStation Music, in partnership with Spotify in early 2015, and Music Unlimited was closed down in favour of the new service on March 29, 2015.


The music service, branded as Music Unlimited,[7] was launched in December 2010 in the United Kingdom and Ireland. It launched in the United States in early January 2011, and in France, Italy, Germany and Spain in late January 2011. It launched in Australia and New Zealand in February 2011.

The service was suspended worldwide in April 2011 along with the PlayStation Network outage, but resumed in mid-May.[8]

On 16 June 2011, a free to download Music Unlimited Android app was released.[9]

In May 2013, Sony Music Unlimited expanded its service into Brazil, raising the total number of countries available to 19.[10]


On 28 January 2015, Sony announced that Spotify would power their new music service called PlayStation Music, with Music Unlimited closing on 29 March 2015.[11]
