Canada, UK get 'Boxing Day' specials on iTunes albums, songs

updated 08:00 pm EST, Thu December 26, 2013

US residents enjoy special holiday 'channels' on iTunes Radio instead

While US residents can brag on their ability to listen to special "holiday" channels on iTunes Radio, other countries have their own iTunes celebrations going on -- the Canadian iTunes Store, for example, has launched a "Boxing Day" sale on select albums and songs, while the UK store has a similar sale (but not, strangely, labeled as "Boxing Day" related). In both countries and a few others, "Boxing Day" kicks off a week of sales from all manner of retailers.

Users with accounts in Canada or the UK can access the special sections (shown below) through either the desktop or mobile versions of iTunes. Broadly speaking, such sales run until January 2 in countries such as Canada, the UK, Australia, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Kenya, South Africa, Trinidad and Tobago and other Commonwealth nations -- though oddly only the UK and Canadian stores are currently offering the Boxing Day sale prices at present.

Sale-priced albums in Canada tend to sell for $8 and go as low as $6. UK store prices run as low as £4 ($6.57 US approximately), as much as 60 percent off their normal prices. For the US, special seasonal iTunes Radio channels include "Holiday Hits," "Holiday Classics," "Swingin' Holiday" (Christmas jazz) and "Children's Christmas Holiday Sing-Along."
