Sony's Music Unlimited service was launched in the U.K. and Ireland in December, and now a larger roll-out is underway.

Poised to be a direct competitor to iTunes, residents of France, Germany, Italy and Spain now have their chance to try out Music Unlimited immediately.

In case you can't figure it out by the abnormally long official name, "Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity" is a monthly subscription plan that permits an unlimited number of music downloads from a catalog of over six million songs each month. The cloud-based service allows for streaming music to Internet-connected gadgets such as Blu-ray disc players, Bravia HDTVs, PlayStation 3 consoles, computers and Android devices.

Qriocity got a bit of the spotlight at CES 2011, and Sony's digital music venture will be available in the United States this April.
