June 23, 2011 at 4:01 AM (PT)
Joining APPLE, GOOGLE and AMAZON, BEST BUY is launching a cloud-based music service. The service will be named "Best Buy Music Cloud." The service is following in the footsteps of similar offerings from Amazon, Google, and Apple.
CNET reports that although, "BEST BUY hasn't 'officially' launched the service, according to DIGITAL TRENDS, interested customers can sign up at the MUSIC CLOUD site. You'll then need to download and install the client software on your PC or MAC. Once installed, the MUSIC CLOUD software offers to scan your iTUNES library. Yes, the service does require that your music be accessible through iTUNES even if you're not an APPLE or iOS user."
The site will offer both a free version and a $3.99-per-month premium version.
