back to article Sony streams music subscriptions to TVs, Blu-ray boxes

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 …

So for £4 you get to play music but can't search for it?

I assume that all you can do is follow links to try and find the music you want for £4?

Finding that one track in 6 million may be a bit of a chore on the cheaper tariff, but I guess that's the point.

Vidzone is much better

Utterly pathetic.

I don't eat music (nor the primitive sonic sequences which pass for music these days), thanks.

Since US radio is dead

Since independent US radio is mostly dead, I can't wait to start using Quiro... Queeroo... Kuri..., Qroc.., Qirio..., Pandora.

I wonder

If my net connected blu-ray player will be updated, all it uses it's connection for now is to update itself and to download a load of crap from BD-live.

Presumably not!
