Apple yesterday opened the digital doors to their iTunes Music Store in Brazil, and will continue its Latin American expansion by reaching Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru and Venezuela. All of these countries will have complete access to music and movies from the store, and also iTunes in the Cloud. Apple stated it will be launching over 20 million songs (which will include international artists) within those countries, with similar pricing as the U.S iTunes store.
Apple also debuted the iTunes Match service in Brazil, making it the first country outside of the United States to gain access to iTunes Match. According to Apple, “iTunes in the Cloud is available today for free in Brazil and Latin America and iTunes Match is available today for a $24.99 annual fee in Brazil.”
