Kristi Fernandez's Avatar Posted by Digital Distribution Manager, Sony Network Entertainment


Hi all – we have exciting news for PlayStation Plus subscribers. For a limited time, our premium Music Unlimited One Year Subscription is available to PlayStation Plus members at an insanely low price of $12….that’s $1 a month and savings of over $100 a year based off the normal price of $9.99 a month. As a Premium subscriber, you’ll have access to every feature of our cloud-based music service and our entire catalog of more than 18 million songs that can be streamed ad-free across multiple devices, including: PS3, PSP, PS Vita, PC, Mac, iPhone, iPod, Android smartphone and tablets, and more.

Here’s a reminder of some of the benefits you’ll get with a One Year Premium Subscription:

Music Search

The Music Unlimited service boasts a great catalog of more than 18 million tunes, from classic tracks to the hottest new jams – all with no ads and unlimited skips.

Offline Mode

No Wi-Fi or cellular data signal necessary when you use your Android smartphone and tablet or PS Vita to enjoy playlists.


Explore channels by genre, era and mood. Create channels inspired by your favorite artists.


Add any song or album to your library. Create playlists and listen anytime.

Tons of Devices to Access and Customize Your Music Experience

Your Music Unlimited service subscription goes beyond just your PS3 and PS Vita and includes devices for the home (Mac, PC, Blu-ray Disc players, and BRAVIA HDTVs), and on the go (Xperia smartphones and tablets, other Android smartphones and tablets, iPhone, iPod touch, and Walkman players). In addition, your Playlists, preferences and offline music* will follow you from device to device.

If you’re a Plus member, there’s no better time than now to sign up for Music Unlimited! If you’re not a PlayStation Plus member, the One Year Premium Subscription is still available at 50% off (the regular price of $119.88) at only $59.99. But remember — these offers are only available for a limited time.

Hey Kristi, I was wondering if music unlimited will be adding Sufjan Stevens’ Christmas albums. I know spotify has already added it so I figured there may be a chance for you guys to also. I have purchased the $12 plus deal and so far the lack of Sufjan’s Christmas stuff is my only complaint. Keep being awesome!

As much as I’m enjoying this deal, I have to agree with those who complain about the music channel song selection. Many of the selections don’t make any sense: I create a channel based on a New Age artist my girlfriend likes, and then the next song is from Irish Pub Songs–not the same mood at all and the New Age artist wasn’t even Celtic!

Can you still add your own music and use music unlimited without conflicts.
I have many soundtrack, African and European albums that I don’t want to lose.

I got this deal because I like the fact that I can listen to music anytime without ads and unlimited skips, but I do have one complaint and hope that it gets fixed sooner than later. All channels should be set to random. I repeat, please make channels play random songs. Nothing is more frusturating than having to here the same songs play everytime I pick a channel to listen to. This seems like a no brainer considering that free apps already do this. I do not want to pick my favorite genre and have the same list of songs play everyday in the same order. A simple random selection will fix this and make this app perfect.

You get what you pay for. The music unlimited service is down half the time I try to access it. Should have increased server capacity before offering the deal, which will greatly increase the number of subscribers.

It’s a pretty decent music service as far as streaming music goes.
I just wish they had some of the more popular, classic bands (Beatles, Led Zeppelin, etc..)

I also wish they would find a way to let you play Music Unlimited music from the XMB while “in game”.
Or temporarily download the album to your XMB to use that way.

So overall, it’s a good deal that could use some tweaks here and there.
Why not just make this part of Plus. Since we lost Qore this would more than make up for it.

Hi Kristi..!!

The service of Music Unlimited is only for the U.S.?
I’m in Mexico and can’t get this deal … would you help me?

i do not live in the US. I do have a US account. I bought this the first day that they offered it.

It works on my vita, sony tablet S, ps3 and PC.

I can save music to my vita and tablet S for offline play. However, on the tablet, i have to switch to offline mode while having internet access in order for the the offline mode to work on the tablet S. if not, the app fails to open without an internet connection.

I have the money in US currency with a US card and US address, but since I work abroad, this offer is essentially null for me. Man I don’t get regional restrictions in this day and age. I wish I could keep up with the music/movie scene in my home country with streaming services like this.

Picked mine up this past week and absolutely love the service. Using offline mode on my android phone is a great option. Hope that the service is available for this price again next year as I love the options available. Only problems i have are the load times on PS3 and my PC and a more a search option to search within specific Genres would be nice too but those arent major grevances.

Hello! I had just gone into the PS store, purchased the PS+ music Unlimited deal
for $12.99. Once I confirmed the purchase, it showed nothing in the checkout area.

Going back into where I went to purchase the MI unlimited deal, it said it
“was not available for purchase”. Although, it didn’t mind taking the money
out of my wallet for the purchase.

Please help me with this. This needs to be fixed immediately!

jiisama_ said:

Relax. You have to exit the store, and download the app from the XMB. It is now unavailable to you cause it does not allow stacking and you already bought one years worth

Thanks very much for letting me know!

I’m downloading the app as I type!

Thanks again! :-D

Guess I started to panic? Hehe

I need some help here. I bought the music unlimited 1 year subscription but I am not sure why they say it works on multiple ps3 when in order for it to be able to work on multiple ps3 I need to be logged out of my ps3 to let my wife use it on her ps3. I am the primary user on both ps3. Can someone explain this to me?

Also, the setting up of channels are broken. The 2 channels I tried to set up all listed songs that were on my favorites at the time but maybe 3 out of 20 songs in channels were actually in the right category.

If I need to buy the second music unlimited subscription, against my better judgment without a reasonable complete understanding as to why, when will the discount end?

Strathmore said:

December 2nd, 8:36 pm

The only thing that stops this from being an incredible deal is the inability to purchase multiple years at once. I would if I could.

Dear Sony,
Please make the Android app of your Music Unlimited as pleasant and refined as your PS Vita app. I do not bring my PS Vita anywhere, but I do bring my phone everywhere. It would be nice if the app loaded faster, wouldn’t crash as much and has the same attention to detail as it’s ps vita counterpart.

Thank you

How long do we have until this deal is over? I just started the trial version today and if I like it, I definetly want to go with the $12 subscription. Can you give me at least a week sony :)

souigirl said:

Hi im interested in knowing will it at some stage become movie unlimited with the music unlimited at 100+ a year is decent. For just music 12 with a yearly playstation card/subscription is a ok i mean 24.00 if it included unlimited movies would be great.. Please keep this offer valid threw the new year :)

ceedub2 said:

Got it when it first came out. $12 a year is a steal. Awesome service without the discount as well.

markcusd said:

The music unlimited player on vita needs some audio EQ settings. Its sounds fairly flat. The service is great otherwise.

CaptainRadical said:

December 3rd, 12:31 pm

Is there a reason why the service hasn’t worked at all for me for like 3 days now? Every time I try connecting I get an error saying “A connection to the server could not be established. This application will close”. Doesn’t matter if I’m over WiFi or 3G. Never works. At 12$ it’s really turning in to a piece of crap, I feel bad for the people who paid full price.

will this ever be able to be paid with money instead of a credit card

Freshh23 said:

December 3rd, 10:38 pm

I was going to sub to this for $12 because I currently don’t have any songs right now so by the time I get the free legal downloads and my CDs and make the digital versions I was going to use this since it’s only $1 a month but I thought it had offline mode on iOS but since it doesn’t I’m going to have to think about it. Everything needs to be the same on all devices.

Also, how much KBs/MBs does using this app/playing songs/searching for songs/adding songs to library/playlist/etc use? because I don’t have an unlimited plan and need to know this. Thanks.

Anyone know how to shuffle the songs in your own playlists within the Music Unlimited app?

Did the sale end? I just checked and the only purchase option available for me is the one year for 60.

dodgedoors said:

does music unlimited offer audiobooks as well?

SpooNManX said:

December 5th, 7:24 pm

I’m enjoying the service and for $1 a month this is worth it, but I really feel like British music is getting a raw deal here…

Where is the Led Zeppelin, Queen, Beatles? They all come up with nothing but covers, karaoke, and tribute albums.

I was happy to see a lot of Van Halen, Aerosmith, Beastie Boys… bands that are usually caught up with licensing
rights. So that was a good move on Sony’s part.

ECrispy77 said:

This is a great deal, but the web player as well as the Android app need to improve. I’m a new PS3 user and the app on the PS3 is decent enough. I also agree, it’d be nice to get better quality and a bigger catalog.

However for this low price its much easier to make this decision, and I hope the quality/selection increase. Sony has a real chance here to be a competitor.
