Apple announced earlier today that the iTunes Store has launched in Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan and nine additional countries in Asia featuring an incredible selection of local and international music from all the major labels and thousands of independent labels.
Despite featuring artists from all over the world, such as ADELE, The Beatles and Jason Mraz, Apple has not forgotten about the local artists including Jay Chou, Girls Generation and Andy Lau. The pieces of world-renowned classical musicians including Lang Lang, Yo Yo Ma and Yuja Wang are also available. In total, there are over 20 million songs available to choose from and download on the iTunes Store.
The newly added countries include Brunei, Cambodia, Laos, Macau, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Sri Lanka and Vietnam. Music fans with iDevices from these countries will now be available to legally discover, purchase and download music online. Moreover, customers can also rent or purchase movies from the iTunes Store, with many available in stunning HD, from major studios including 20th Century Fox, Paramount Pictures, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, The Walt Disney Studios and Warner Bros. Pictures. And most importantly, the iTunes Store joins the revolutionary App Store™ which offers more than 650,000 apps to consumers in as many as 155 countries!
