UK supermarket chain Tesco is working on a digital locker service, adding to the current buzz around music and media in the cloud. The idea would be to tie physical CD and DVD sales in-store to digital versions of that content accessible online. “The way it would work practically is that when you buy a disc in store or online, that title would be put up into your Digital Locker which would immediately be accessible from devices registered to that locker,” explains Blueprint Digital CEO Richard Bron, whose company is working with Tesco on the scheme. October is pegged as the likely launch date. As a reminder, our cloud models debate takes place on Wednesday 14 July. Source: Music Week Cloud debate
