Carphone Warehouse launches cloud music service
Carphone Warehouse has launched a cloud music service, called ‘Music Anywhere’, in partnership with Catch Media.
The service, which will launch tomorrow (3 August) for iPhones, BlackBerrys and some Android handsets, allows users to collect their personal music catalogue and stream it on their computer, laptop or smartphone.
The application can be downloaded from Carphone Warehouse’s portal, My Hub, and will be available through Best Buy later this year.
‘Music Anywhere’ will be bundled with the new Samsung Europa or for an annual fee of £29.99.
Users of the service will have access to six million different tracks, accessible through Catch Media’s agreements with major labels, aggregators and collecting societies.
Carphone Warehouse head of group digital services Tom Guy said: ‘We all have a cherished music collection that brings together our favourite mix of songs. The new Music Anywhere service lets you listen to this wherever you are, through any computer or by downloading the mobile App. In just a few minutes you can have thousands of tracks available from home, at work, on the train or in the car.’
Catch Media UK chief executive Harry Malone said: ‘We are thrilled to be associated with such a forward thinking retailer as Carphone Warehouse and to be part of their plans to provide customers with a new way to access their music collection.’
