Russia, Turkey, India, Indonesia get video

Following some early premieres, Apple has officially opened access to the iTunes Music Store in 56 more countries. While the company isn't providing a full list, it does highlight Russia, Turkey, India, Indonesia, and South Africa. Of the new countries, only Russia, Turkey, India, and Indonesia are getting access to movie rentals and purchases as well.

The expansion brings the total number of countries with the iTunes Music Store to 119, almost double the previous amount. The App Store, by contrast, is already available in 155 countries. Apps however are a prerequisite for selling the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch in a given region, and are easier for Apple to sell. Launching music or movies in a given country often requires complex rights negotiations.
