Best Buy teams with Real, Sandisk on music service

  • Leading electronics retailer Best Buy said Thursday it would partner with MP3 player maker Sandisk and Real Networks to create and promote a subscription and buy-to-own music service. The collaboration is the latest effort to dethrone Apple from the top of the digital music market.

    The Best Buy Digital Music Store uses Real Networks' Rhapsody service, and will be featured on the Sandisk Sansa e200R line of Rhapsody MP3 players, which the companies said have been "optimized to work seamlessly" with the new store. The new MP3 players and the new service are set to launch on 15 October.
