iTunes Match comes to Brazil

Apple has now formally confirmed the expansion of the iTunes Store to a host of Latin American countries. The strongest emphasis is on Brazil, where the initial music catalog is said to include over 20 million songs, including the first digital editions of Roberto Carlos' collection. Apple says that most songs are priced at 99 cents, and most albums at $9.99.

Brazil is also getting access to iTunes in the Cloud, and iTunes Match, the latter of which was previously available only in the US. As in the US, the Brazilian version of Match is priced at $24.99 annually. In terms of video Apple is promising "over a thousand" movies for rent or purchase, of which "many" should be in HD.

Beyond Brazil, another 15 countries are involved in the expansion. These include: Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, and Venezuela. While iTunes Match is only available in Brazil, iTunes in the Cloud should be enabled across Latin America.
