The Carphone Warehouse has launched a music streaming service called 'Music Anywhere'. It's been created for them by Catch Media and will cost £29.99 per year. This fee lets users 'stream' all the music tracks from their personal collection via The Carphone Warehouse’s online My Hub portal to a desktop computer, laptop, smartphone or PDA.
Broadband and fixed-line telephone provider TalkTalk – once part of The Carphone Warehouse – is preparing to launch its own mobile phone service on the Vodafone network. It's expected to offer 'pay monthly' voice and mobile broadband tariffs to its customers from the autumn.
The Carphone Warehouse Group plc – which is 50% of Best Buy Europe and 47.5% of Virgin Mobile France - has published an Interim Management Statement for Q1 of its 2010-11 financial year.
Paul Antoniadis, CEO of Best Buy Branded Operations – seen as the man running the organisation's UK business - has left the company just three months after the first UK store opened.
Meanwhile Andrew Harrison, CEO of The Carphone Warehouse, has been appointed Best Buy Europe Chief Operating Officer in addition to his current retail role. He'll report to Best Buy Europe CEO Scott Wheway.
