Apple has begun its second major international iTunes Match roll out with the addition of Italy, Portugal, Greece, Slovenia, and Austria to the list of countries the service is available in. iTunes Match launched here in the US in November, but users in these five countries have not been able to sign up for Apple’s cloud-based music solution until now.
If you happen to live in one of the countries listed and are interested in iTunes Match, you can subscribe right in the iTunes Store. Once subscribed you’ll be able to store and access all your music – most notably, music you’ve taken from physical CDs – in the cloud. There are also reports that customers in these countries will now have the option to view and download previously purchased content as well as enable automatic downloads for applications and books.
