Apple switches on iTunes Match in the UK

By Richard Mallion
Apple has just switch on iTunes Match for the UK. A subscription to iTunes Match costs £21.99 a year and adds everywhere access to the music you’ve imported from CDs and bought elsewhere. Match first determines which of those songs are for sale in the store and automatically adds them to your iCloud library, no uploading required. It then uploads any music it didn’t find a match for. The result is your complete library in the cloud, playlists and all, with a minimum amount of upload time required to get it there. You can keep up to 25,000 songs in your library–songs purchased from iTunes don’t count against that number.
