The cloud-based music program streams music to Internet-connected devices (especially those made by Sony) such as Blu-ray disc players, Bravia HDTVs, PlayStation 3 consoles, computers and even Android devices. The catalog currently retains approximately six million songs that a subscriber can stream an unlimited amount of times.
