PSM-TileSony will be closing down the Music Unlimited subscription service from 29 March 2015. The service will be replaced with PlayStation Music, powered by Spotify. The PlayStation Music website is now live, with a placeholder promising further details shorty:

Spotify will soon be available on PlayStation Music, with a special offer for Music Unlimited customers who sign up at launch.

Sony has also released a very short FAQ confirming that Music Unlimited subscribers will not be able to use the service from 29 March. Details are also given on how your playlists can be exported to a CSV file. You can find the full FAQ below – as soon as we hear official details/pricing on the new PlayStation Music service we will let you know.

  • bilomar

  • Caelum Cunnane

    I gave it a go but it’s Android and Vita apps were terrible, crashed all the time.

  • Kamil1308

    That`s great new, Thanks. I guess you be able to log in just by using your Spotify account details in that case.

  • Gizmoe Alonzo

    So, will Playstation music be available on my Bravia TV? What about sony blue ray players/media centers…. Much left unanswered D:

  • GregLu

    I hope that too actually since I’m a Spotify paid user … It would be nice to have the playlist in the Walkman and more than that : The launch and the play/stop is possible in Walkman through a NFC tag via Smart Connect, wich isn’t possible with Spotify, sadly.

    Kinda a shame though that it’s not ready yet since the deadline of PS Music is in two days …

  • ZXcorr

    I do

  • I gave it a shot but I absolutely hated the app. Man what a let down because the PSP and PS3 apps were beautiful. If they could bring the looks of those plus the functionality of Spotify. Music Unlimited would have been perfect.

  • so did I, and I waited for a whole year hoping that they would bring the app to a decent level. Then I switched to spotify.

  • Raphael

    Bad news : I will loose all my playlists :-(
    Good news : I will have 4 months Premium membership for free :-)

  • Okazuma

    I don’t understand if PsMusic will be available on PsVita or not…..

    Sony should kills Xperia media apps like Music, Video, Album and replace them by PlayStation Music app (listen mp3/lossless files on the device or streaming music in one app), PlayStation Video app(watch 4K/fullHD videos on the device or streaming movies / TV programs in one app) and PlayMemories app (gallery app that let users view pictures/videos or edit pictures/videos or back-up pictures/videos in the cloud automatically)

  • Khillo81

    I actually used it as the audio quality was quite good. However, I never used the app, only listened to the music through the Walkman

  • paul_cus

    I did for a few months and dropped it because it wasn’t up to par with other services.

  • [S]unjay

    I doubt it.

  • Irfan Faiz

    Would like to see Spotify integrated with the new Music player. Much prefer the UI over the default Spotify app.

    I’m glad that my subscription has been extended until 19th July. I don’t know what they meant with “the service will end at 29th march”. Everything still working fine. Or is it because USA is still in 29th March?

  • goldenblls

    I don’t like Spotify. I’m afraid I’ll be signing up for Qobuz again for HD Audio.

    I wanted to carry on using the Walkman app. I don’t know why they just can’t integrate any online services into the Walkman app. The fools!

  • goldenblls

    MIne stopped working today and I got redirected to Spotify, whether I liked it or not. I won’t be signing up.

  • goldenblls

    Are you sure it’s Premium? Mine isn’t.
