On Thursday, 19 July 2012, Apple released iTunes Match to Hungary and Poland. Later, Apple expanded iCloud’s media offerings to countries that already have the iTunes Match services.
In United Kingdom (UK), Apple expanded its iTunes in the Cloud offerings to include movies users that have already purchased through iTunes.
Apple has given customers a way to easily track and retrieve previously purchased content by allowing them to re-download any movie they have purchased through their UK iTunes account.
This is helpful for users with smaller hard drives in their MacBooks and iOS devices. Now they would not need to to have a back up and store all the large media purchases they made. When finished watching a film, the user can just delete it and the re-download it again when necessary. However, only those movies can be available for re-download whose producers have given such consent to Apple.
In addition to the UK, Apple released iTunes movies in the Cloud to many other countries including Ireland, Australia, Canada and New Zealand.
This service is also coming to several Latin American and Asian countries. These countries include Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Venezuela, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Brunei, Cambodia, Laos, Macau, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Czech Republic, Hungary, and Slovakia.
