Sony 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.
