iTunes is having a big day today it would seem. Earlier today iTunes Match got expanded to Hungary and Poland, and now Apple has been doing some very large expansion of their iTunes in the Cloud service. Today they have added many (30+) countries to the list of supported countries for the Movies feature of iTunes in the Cloud. Many users in the UK have noticed that their iTunes movie content is showing as eligible for re-download through iTunes in the Cloud, but Apple says that “most” of the purchases should be included.
This expansion is the first time that the iTunes in the Cloud movie feature has been available outside of the US. This allows users to download previously purchased content on any computer, iOS device, or Apple TV through their iTunes account. The list of added countries are as follows:
Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Venezuela, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Brunei, Cambodia, Laos, Macau, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
So as you can see, this is a big expansion of the service. Many users now have access to movies through iTunes in the Cloud.
What do you think? Are you included in the new list? Glad Apple has made the expansion? Is this too much at once, and you wonder if it may hinder the performance? Let us know in the comments.
