Two months after Sony launched its Qriocity powered music-on-demand platform in the UK and Europe, it has announced the arrival of Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity in the US (and Australia and New Zealand too). 

The subscription-based package will give its users access to tonnes of songs from many of the major record labels including Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, Warner Music Group and EMI Music as well as some of the leading independent labels. 

You can access and play tunes through a range of Sony devices including the 2010 Bravia TVs, Blu-ray players and home theatre systems, as well as PlayStation 3 consoles and Vaio PCs.

There are also plans afoot to bring the service to Android devices and "a wide range of Sony’s portable devices" - could this be the Sony Qriocity tablet we told you about on Wednesday?

“As we expand ‘Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity’ around the globe, it signifies a paradigm shift which redefines the existing music listening experience by revolutionising music access, discovery, integration and personalisation,” said Kazuo Hirai, president of Networked Products & Services Group, Sony Corporation.

“Through Sony’s high quality network-enabled devices, we are focused on delivering dynamic services ‘powered by Qriocity’ to offer global customers with compelling digital entertainment propositions.”

The plans available are Basic ($3.99, AU$4.99, NZ$5.99) and Premium ($9.99, AU$12.99, NZ$13.99).
