PlayStation getting a Spotify-powered music service

Sony today revealed PlayStation Music, a new Spotify-powered music service coming to PlayStation 3, 4 and “Xperia smartphones and tablets” this spring. The service will outright replace Music Unlimited, the service that Sony previously implemented across devices, powered by its own enormous music catalog. The news marks the first time Spotify has come to any game console, and is a major coup for Sony’s PlayStation group in the battle for major home entertainment apps on game consoles (Xbox One notoriously got HBO Go first).

Excellent news. I’ve always wanted something like this, but wasn’t willing to sign up for another service when I already use Spotify for streaming.

More information on HBO Nordic

The service, named HBO Nordic AB, will allow customers in Sweden, Norway, Finland, and Denmark to stream subtitled versions of the same content available in the US. Original series like Game of Thrones and Boardwalk Empire, as well as movies that are featured by the channel, will be streamable at HBONordic.com.

Ten euros per month.
