65w ago - Sony's Greg Belloni has announced today news regarding the integration of their Music Unlimited service with Bravia TVs.
Below are the details, to quote: If you own one of Sony's 2012 BRAVIA TVs, you'll be able to quickly and easily answer the following question: "Who sings that song?"
2012 Bravia TVs will feature Sony TrackID, allowing viewers to, with a push of a button, identify any song that's being played during a TV program they're watching.
By using Gracenote's advanced audio fingerprinting, Sony TrackID will show the song name and artist information for music played during TV shows, movies and even commercials.
Even better? After identifying the song that's being played, viewers will see direct links to the songs and/or artists on the Music Unlimited service, where listeners can listen to the whole song or more from that band or artist.
This is just one of the ways we're continuing to bring the Music Unlimited service to subscribers across a host of connected devices. Find out more here.

To quote: We just updated the Music Unlimited service application on PS3 with some great features that many of you have been asking for.
Cosmetically, you'll probably first notice that our new branding has finally landed on PS3. More importantly, however, the new app gives you added control over how you listen to and access music.
We're most excited about the new "My Channels" function that lets you build custom radio stations around your favorite artists. Simply type in the name of the artist and we'll populate a station with songs from that artist and related artists.
Another great enhancement to the service makes it easier to skip tracks you dislike. Really don't like a song that is playing on one of the channels? Just "dislike" it and we'll automatically skip to the next one.
The "My Channels" and the "dislike" enhancements - available to both Basic and Premium subscribers - add to your ability to customize the music you listen to on the service. The features will also available via a firmware update today for 2010 and 2011 connected BRAVIAs, PCs, and Blu-ray Disc devices,...
