iTunes Match makes official debut in Canada, UK, other areas

updated 05:10 pm EST, Thu December 15, 2011

More expansions may be imminent

Following a botched rollout on Wednesday, Apple has today officially expanded iTunes Match to Canada and the UK. In Canada the service costs $28 a year, while in the UK annual pricing is set at 22. Unlike regular iCloud options, iTunes Match allows a person to mirror and remotely access their entire music library, regardless of whether the content is on iTunes.

New terms and conditions are reportedly being pushed out to international iTunes Store visitors. The changes deal specifically with iTunes Match, which until today was available only in the US and Brazil. One update, Apple writes, deals with "Notification of an additional type of previously-purchased content that may be subsequently downloaded to certain computers and devices as an accommodation to you, subject to existing association rules; and that such content may be played back on certain devices that are not subject to existing association rules, with limitations."

Another deals with paying a subscription fee for remote access, while the last states that Match must collect information from an iTunes library and link it to an account. Germany and the Czech Republic are among the countries seeing the new terms, suggesting they will be getting iTunes Match shortly.

Update: Australia, France, New Zealand, and Spain are also seeing functioning iTunes Match options go live.
