Lebanon, Turkey, and Russia see iTunes Music store go live before tomorrow’s event

It was reported earlier today that Apple will be holding an event tomorrow in Russia regarding iTunes. According to some tweets dug up by 9to5Mac, users are reporting that the iTunes Music store has gone live in Turkey, Lebanon, and Russia. The prices are noticeably cheaper than those in the US, averaging around 32-65 cents USD. Also, 9to5Mac has heard and is reporting that iTunes Match will be around $25/year. The iPhone 5 has been announced to be coming to both Russia and Turkey on December 14th, so the iTunes Music store being rolled out to these countries ahead of launch would make logical sense.

What do you think? Are you from one of these countries and see the store going live? Let us know in the comments, or tweet me @TiP_Kyle.

    I am from Lebanon and I can confirm that the information about the iTunes store going live here is true. I am so excited about this! Though it still has a little number of songs and no movies or music videos I think it’s a start, maybe it takes a few days to update database for Lebanon but we’ll just let time tell us.

    Prices are the same as in the US 0.99$/song and 9.99$/album
