Music Unlimited Features
With Basic and Premium monthly subscription plans, Music Unlimited offers a breadth of content and easy music discovery features.
The service’s Basic subscription plan works as an infinite ad-free radio station and subscribers can listen to dozens of personalized channels – categorized by genre, era as well as mood through SensMe without the requirement to download or manage their music files.
The Music Unlimited Premium subscription plan enables users to listen in full to every song on demand, create personal playlists of favorite songs, and gain access to premium Top 100 channels which are regularly updated with the latest hits.
Among the newest features for both plans and available on the Music Unlimited PS3 and PC applications, “My Channels,” gives users ultimate control by building custom radio stations based on their favorite artists. Simply type in the name of the artist and a new station is populated with songs from that artist and others similar in style.
