Sony streams music subscriptions to TVs, Blu-ray boxes

All you can eat for a monthly fee

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Sony is now offering owners of its Bravia internet tellies, its Blu-ray Disc players, PS3 consoles and Vaio PCs all-you-can eat monthly music subscriptions.

You cough up either £4 or £10 a month, and you can select and stream songs to your set-top or TV.

Sony said the service, which will launch under its irritating Qriocity brand, has six million tracks to choose from.

The lower cost, "Basic" plan provides access to all the songs, which you can also download - if you have a PC - and sync to portable players. The extra six pounds a month you'll pay for the "Premium" offering gives you acess to extra channels, the ability to create your own online playlists and channels, and track searching.

Sony launched its Qriocity video-on-demand service last month.

Music Unlimited is initially available in the UK and Ireland, but it'll be rolled out to Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, New Zealand and the US during 2011 and beyond. ®
