Do good things come to those who wait? More than six years after launching the iTunes Music Store in the United States, Apple has finally launched the iTunes Store in Mexico, offering music from the world’s major labels and hundreds of independent labels and featuring both Mexican and international artists. Most songs are priced at 12 pesos with albums at 120 pesos, and—like other iTunes Stores—the music is available in 256kbps, DRM-free AAC format.
The Mexican version of iTunes also features Apple’s App Store, with more than 65,000 applications available for the iPhone and iPod touch. The store also offers music videos (most of which are priced at 24 pesos) along with a podcast directory.
“The iTunes Store in Mexico is off to a great start with music from all of the majors and hundreds of indie labels,” said Apple Internet Services VP Eddy Cue, in a statement. “And the revolutionary App Store in Mexico gets bigger and better with great new apps using amazing new features, and we can’t wait to see what developers come up with next.”
See what’s missing from the Mexican iTunes Store? Movies and television shows. Although the store does offer music videos, none of the television and movie content available to other North American customers is yet on tap for Mexican users; Apple hasn’t indicated when (or if) television or movies will be available for purchase through the Mexican version of the iTunes store, or whether it will offer Mexican film and television titles.
