Apple also launched its iTunes Match service in India, which
allows users to store music, bought from sources other than iTunes, in iCloud.
This service is priced at Rs 1,200 per year. But, there are no TV shows listed,
unlike various other international markets.

Single songs are priced between Rs 7 and Rs 15 and albums
start from Rs 70. Similarly, most movies are available for rent at Rs 80 in SD
(Rs 120 in HD) and buy for Rs 290 in SD (Rs 490 in HD).

The iTunes Store debuted as the US-only iTunes
Music Store in April 2003. It has since expanded to include movies and TV shows
and until today was available in approximately 97 countries. In June, it added
12 Asian countries including Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan.
