Apple Launches iTunes Match Service In Canada, UK, Europe And Australia
Just two days after their iTunes Store and iTunes Match launch in Brazil and 15 other Latin American countries Apple is slowly rolling out their iTunes Match service internationally to UK, Europe, Australia and Canada. Though Apple didn’t release any official statement regarding their iTunes Match roll out in Europe, U.K, Canada and Australia but a lot reports have already confirmed iTunes Match launch in said countries.
iTunes Match was launched in second week on November but at the time of launch iTunes Match was only limited for US customers. Cupertino based company promised to bring this service for international iTunes Store and iTunes users as soon as they land on agreement with international labels.
This $24.99-per-year service allows users to match up to 25,000 songs from their iTunes music collection with songs on the iTunes Music Store, thereby making matched songs available in iCloud. iTunes Match prices range from £21.99 in the U.K., €24.99 in France and AUD$39.99 in Australia. The service also appears to have arrived in Canada for CAD$27.99.
iTunes Match service suddenly appeared on Wednesday evening in aforementioned countries. Remember that Apple rolled out iTunes Store and iTunes Match service in Brazil in exactly same way as they did in Canada, Europe, U.K and Australia on Wednesday evening.
How To Get iTunes Match ?
People are reporting issues during iTunes Match sign-up, but if you’re in Canada, U.K, Australia or any other European country, all you need is a latest version of iTunes. You can download iTunes 10.5.2 from here. You can Sign Up for iTunes Match from your iTunes and start using this service right away.
Some analysts believe that this is not a good move by Apple in terms of revenue but I believe that it’s just a small part something bigger which is coming next. And I personally recommend iTunes Match, if you’re a music lover you will absolutely love this service.
