Sony’s Qriocity launches in U.S.

Streaming service offers databank of 6 mil songs

Sony went live with its music streaming service yesterday, releasing Sony Qriocity Music Unlimited in the U.S.

Service allows streaming from Sony’s 6 million-song databank on Macs and PCs, as well as connected HDTVs, Blu-ray players and Playstation 3 consoles.

Functioning much like Internet radio services Pandora and Slacker, Qriocity offers a tiered membership, allowing top-paying subscribers to access songs on demand and create playlists. Unlike those services, however, Qriocity is not yet available on mobile devices.

The service launched in the U.K. and Ireland at the end of last year, and in Western Europe last month.
