Apple Extends iTunes Store To India

Almost six months after extending its iTunes Store to 12 Asian markets, Apple has finally launched the service in the Indian market, silently. Users in India will now be able to buy and download local and international music and music videos, and rent or purchase films (HD films included) from the store. Interestingly, Apple has also extended its iTunes Match service in India, allowing users to re-download previously downloaded music (even music purchased & downloaded from sources other than iTunes) from iTunes, and store it in the cloud at a price of Rs 1200 per year (compared to the US Store price of $25 per year).

Although, Apple has not announced the names of record labels and studios it has tied-up with, the store features both Indian and International music from all major labels including Sony Music India, Saregama, T-Series, YRF Music (Yashraj) EMI Records

Just done a quick overlook. Rs. 12 per song seems to be the fixed price. Yet album price varies. For movies, Rs. 120 to rent HD & Rs. 490 to buy HD. Although buy HD price varies with the titles. And I have to say those are very limited titles available.Unfortunately they haven't launched the iBookstore for India yet.

Edit: Correction. Rs. 12 per song is not a fixed price. It also varies.

this brings a new headache for me. my credit card is linked with someones itunes account (for some app purchases). i need to get my credit card reset so that it does not end up getting used for movie purchases :eek:
