Report suggests iTunes store coming to additional European countries
A report from Polish newspaper Rzeczpospolita claims Apple is preparing to launch its iTunes music store in ten new countries throughout Europe. These new additions may include Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic and seven other unnamed locations.
If Rzeczpospolita's report is correct, this rollout will significantly boost the reach of Apple's music store. Apple currently operates its iTunes music store in a little over 20 countries globally. Its reach is hindered by music licensing agreements that limits sales to select countries. As a result, the iTunes Music store only logs about 12 million song downloads each month. It is outpaced by Apple's App Store which has a wider reach and over 31 million app downloads each month.
