Hi guys,
I'll explain what I'd like to be able to do, and hopefully someone can recommend what service or services I might use to achieve it.

I use iTunes on my PC to listen to music, and I use a couple of smart playlists.  For example, one list (which updates automatically) contains all the songs I've rated 4 or 5 stars.  I would like these songs to be automatically synced to the internet so that new songs I rate well will be automatically available in my cloud storage.  

The other half of the equation is that I'd like to be able to play these songs streaming from the cloud on all of my devices which include an Android phone (SG-S2), an iPod Touch and PC.

Basically, I'd like something like iTunes Match that will also work on Android and supports playlists.

Anyone have a setup like this,  or able to recommend what to use?

Thanks,
Geoff

No one streams their own music from the internet? I would have thought people would want to do this...

We're sorry. The Google Play music player is currently only available in the United States.

Where are you going to store all of this music in the cloud? And how much does it cost?

This claims to be able to stream music from a cloud but in reality appears to just be a LAN stream server.

I think i must have been put in a beta or something then, I got an email about it the other day and thought surely that is only for USA.

But I have signed up and using it now on PC and WP7. My google account is NZ and my IP is NZ based.

Maybe it is coming to NZ very soon then.
