Sony's Music Unlimited is closing at the end of March 2015

Today, I found out via an email from Sony that Music Unlimited is closing at the end of March.

How disappointing! I'm so tired of great services getting shut down.

But, here's one good bit of news. Quoted from

"Current Music Unlimited customers will be able to listen throughout March even if their subscriptions end before the month is over."

Not so good is this quote:

"Music Unlimited subscriptions will not renew after March 29."

So, if your subscription renews before March 29, then, you might want to manually cancel it in March before you possibly get charged.

(Addition, March 8, 2015: Actually, this was a bad idea. I did this, and I'm now considered a non-subscriber, so I'm going to have to contact customer support to see if I can reactivate my account for the rest of March.

Originally, I hadn't seen this FAQ page which says:

If you have an active Music Unlimited subscription at the end of February 2015, you will be able to continue listening until the end of March, and you will not be charged during the month of March. Music Unlimited subscriptions will automatically expire on March 29 and will not renew again.

Unless you want to subscribe to Playstation Music, which seems to just be Spotify streaming through your Playstation.

I'm not going to subscribe to Playstation Music because I don't have a Playstation 3 or 4, and I shouldn't get one in the near future, both for financial reasons, and to avoid distractions. And besides, I just don't like Spotify as much as Music Unlimited.

I think I'd rather try creating my own music service. Maybe I really will try, perhaps using the MN Open API from MediaNet.

But, due to my chronic financial difficulties, I'm probably going to have to do something else instead.

As usual, I welcome donations, microdonations, and purchases of goods (none available yet as I write this) and services (which are somewhat available now, but I've been avoiding my email again lately).
