Apple announcements tomorrow 6:00EST/3:00PST

“Apple, the US computer maker, is expected to launch its popular internet music store in Europe tomorrow, in an attempt to build on the company’s considerable success in the US online music market. [...]

One person in the industry said Steve Jobs, Apple’s chief executive, was expected to be on hand to announce Apple’s music store would immediately be available to consumers in the UK, Germany and France. Mr Jobs was also expected to announce plans to eventually roll out the service to other European countries.”

Apple’s press event will take place at approximately 11:00AM local time in London, England (6:00AM Eastern Standard Time and 3:00AM Pacific Standard Time, United States). Additional announcements regarding new iTunes and iPod pricing, availability, and accessories may be included in the presentation. Join iLounge tomorrow morning for full coverage of the event.

I’m now not getting the country warning screen, and down at the bottom there’s the option to select UK.

It started to load, but then I got an error message - perhaps too many people trying to log on? :)

Apparently Steve mentioned something about being able to play iPod in cars, I am wondering if only certain brands (BMW) will be supported. Any info?

Is it just me, or are there very few tracks avaliable on the Apple Store in the UK?  Will more be coming later today?

Posted by Adz on June 15, 2004 at 5:16 AM (CDT)


Won’t process my card either. Am getting an error saying the card info was declined, but it is definitely all correct and works fine with other online transactions.
They must be getting overloaded with requests.

So let me get this right…its available in France, the UK and Germany right now, and Australia as well as the rest of Europe in October? Or just the rest of europe?

Thanks for the tip Nathan. Got logged on. There are lots of gaps in the content though! Maybe it’ll get better. Bit disappointed to be honest. Also the audiobooks are way cheaper on the US site.

Posted by Dr Pod on June 15, 2004 at 5:29 AM (CDT)


I checked the German store, lots of german language music. Very impressive !!!

Registration was no problem, credit card was accepted straight away.

Apple deffinitely hates canadians, at least Jobbs does. We are the last one on their list for everything, everything, fuckin japan and europe gets things before us and we are just up north, not an ocean appart. They even fired their sales representative here, all in all I’m fed up with Apple. I’ll probably get an iPod one day in my life but no macs anymore, I already have 2000$ down for an alienware system, at least THEY care about us. I’ve been a mac user for many years now (7 years) and as soon as I have enough cash down it’s up to alienware I go. If I’d be living in France or Japan or even the US (which will never happens) I might consider an Apple product again because they care about those markets, but I’m a canadian and Jobbs hates me and my fellow…
