Apple begins international rollout of iTunes Match


Apple has started to roll out its iTunes Match cloud music service internationally. Available since early November in the U.S. and launched earlier this week in Brazil, links to activate the service have appeared on the front page of the iTunes Store in Australia, Canada, France, Ireland, Mexico, Spain, and the United Kingdom, and possibly in other countries. iTunes Match is a $25/year service that matches tracks in a user’s iTunes library with tracks stored on the company’s iTunes Store servers, uploading any tracks it can’t match, and offering users full access to all their music — up to 25,000 tracks — from any of their devices.

I got as far as the new Terms and Conditions page, accepted and now am getting the same 5002 error I was getting last night during the “false release”.

Confirned in Australia.
Price A$34.95 rather than US24.95 where A$ is parity with US$. Expensive surcharge for having an Australian account!

$39.95 in NZ…still feels worth it to legitimise my entire library and safeguard against total loss if my HDD has a meltdown.
