Sony announces cloud-based music service for the UK

Sony has launched a cloud-based digital music service called ‘Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity’, which will offer access to millions of songs from major labels. There’ll be around six million tracks available from launch. It’ll launch in the UK and Ireland with availability in other markets due to be announced during 2011.

The service will let users play music via a wide variety of internet-connected Sony devices including network-enabled BRAVIA TVs, Blu-ray DVD players, the PlayStation3 gaming system and personal computers. It’ll also be rolled-out to a number of portable Sony devices as well as Android-based mobile handsets.

‘Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity’ builds on the success of the company’s Video On Demand service, which was launched earlier this year.

Kazuo Hirai, President of Networked Products & Services Group at Sony Corporation, said “As we start to expand Qriocity globally, these services ‘powered by Qriocity’ offer a single ID log-in and wallet solution, and empower users to easily consume content including music and video across a growing number of integrated devices. Seamless accessibility to content through these fresh user experiences will enrich Sony’s network service offerings and continually add value to the unique aspects of Sony’s network-enabled products.”

‘Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity’ has been developed in partnership with Omnifone. It’ll cost from £3.99 per month.

Mark Bridge writes:

If you listen to this week’s edition of The Fonecast - in which we predict what’ll be happening in the mobile telecoms industry during 2015 - you’ll hear James Rosewell say that BlackBerry’s handset business is doomed. Well, actually that’s not quite true.

Predictions for Connected Homes in 2015

Jon Carter of Deutsche Telekom has provided us with his ‘Connected Home’ predictions for 2015:

Connected home products and services rely on different communication standards, be it ZigBee, HomeMatic or Z-Wave. Only platforms which both handle established standards and are able to learn new protocols will hold their ground in the market in 2015. Customers don’t want to be limited in their product choices or care about compatibility issues. Integrating any device into a connected home setup needs to be smooth and simple.

Predictions for 2015: operators face churn, the SIM loses its grip, and cloud and VoLTE finally arrive

Mark Windle of OpenCloud writes:

In 2014, operators focussed on rolling out LTE, but some have lost sight of the bigger picture. 2015 will see traditional telecoms services delivered over multiple access technologies, of which LTE is just a part. As next year fast approaches, our predictions take a step back and look at how the industry will adapt to the changing landscape.
