Sony updates PS3 Music Unlimited app, adds custom radio stations

Posted at 09 November 2011 13:00 CET by Justin_Massoud

Sony’s Music Unlimited service doesn’t enjoy the same word-of-mouth enthusiasm that Spotify and Pandora have garnered from music lovers. But if being unpopular stopped the company from trying to improve, it would have closed up shop a long time ago.

A new update for users accessing the streaming music platform on their PlayStation 3 consoles has added much-needed features, including greater customization options available to subscribers.

“The new app gives you added control over how you listen to and access music,” said Mike Aragon, vice president of Sony Network Entertainment. “We’re most excited about the new ‘My Channels’ function that lets you build custom radio stations around your favorite artists. Simply type in the name of the artist and we’ll populate a station with songs from that artist and related artists.”

Listeners can essentially mold the app to their liking, not unlike Pandora and Last.fm. Aragon said a new “dislike” feature would allow users to skip tracks they don’t enjoy.

“We’ve also given PS3 users more power to adjust on the fly with the ability to edit playlists directly from the system,” explained Aragon. “You can now create new playlists from scratch, delete or rename them. Songs can also be deleted or added to existing playlist providing complete control over your listening experience.”

Music Unlimited is a paid subscription service. A Basic membership runs $3.99/month, while the Premium version costs $9.99/month. Key differences between the two plans include the latter’s unlimited playback and playlist-editing capabilities. The new features are available to both basic and premium subscribers.
