Sony is killing off Music Unlimited and replacing it with Spotify

39 sec read

In an announcement that will disappoint pretty much nobody, Sony has confirmed that it will be shutting down its Music Unlimited service around the end of March. Sony’s failed attempt to take on the likes of Beats Music and Rdio will instead be replaced by Spotify on PlayStation Music due to a new partnership with the company. 

After a report that Sony Mobile could be preparing to layoff another 1,000 workers, it’s clear Sony is doing a little restructuring. Most of that revolves around the company’s renewed effort to focus on their profitable PlayStation brand, with today’s latest development echoing just that. To just about no one’s dismay, Sony has announced that they will officially shut down their Music Unlimited service in all 19 countries on March 29th, 2015 (apparently nobody told the Sony Xperia Twitter account). Music Unlimited — which, let’s be real, was lacking compared to rival music streaming services like Rdio, Google Play Music, or Beats — will instead be replaced this spring by Spotify on PlayStation Music, Sony’s latest partnership that expands music listening to 41 markets around the world.
