We’re starting to get reports that Apple is sending out emails to users in Spain and elsewhere in Europe notifying them the iTunes Match service is officially available for 24,99 € per year (as shown above). One Twitter user also claims that he was able to subscribe to the service in Europe two days ago before iTunes told him it was a mistake and returned his money.
“I managed to buy iTunes Match in Europe two days ago. Now they told me it was mistake and returned the money.
The email he provides looks identical to the one above apart from the language. It’s of course possible this is a slip up on Apple’s part ahead of an official rollout in the near future. Let us know in the comments if you have access to the service, which you can try here.
We’ve got reports coming in from Canada where it is listed at C$27.99/year and Australia where it is A$39.99. In the UK, it is £21.99.
Last week Apple also opened up the cloud service to users in Brazil to accompany the launch of the iTunes Store in Latin America.
