Best Buy announced “Music Cloud” on Wednesday, a new service that will compete directly with other cloud-based music services from Apple, Amazon, and Google. Best Buy Music Cloud is powered by Play Anywhere and, after a quick sign-up process, users can download the application to their Mac or PC, as well as to an iPhone, Android device or BlackBerry. Once the respective applications are installed, Music Cloud allows you to stream tunes or cache them for offline playback. The free package allows access to the Best Buy Web player only, so you’ll need to cough up $4 per month for the premium package to access your tunes wherever you go.
