iTunes Match now available in Canada

It's $27.99 per year. Has anyone signed up yet? Curious to see how long it takes to upload / download. It might be worth it just for the album art and proper ID3 tags for my ripped CD's from way back when.

If you're doing it just for the tags, you can find free programs to do it. iTunes can auto-fetch album art for all songs, even those you've ripped yourself.

Also, iTunes Match will not correct or modify pre-existing music in your iTunes library -- you would have to delete the songs you want modified by iTunes Match, then have iTunes re-download them from the iTunes Store. (Assuming your pre-existing library exists in the iTunes Store.)

I'm signing up now.... This is pretty interesting.

I was worried I wouldn't be able to find a way to give apple more money this month! Go me!

Maybe I'm an exception but am I the only one who can't use this because of the 25,000 song limit?

I didn't know about the limit, but I'd be in the same boat!

Limited to 25,000 songs not purchased from the iTunes Store -- iTunes purchases are unlimited and do not count toward the 25,000 limit. Just clarifying it for everyone.

It's true that iTunes purchases are unlimited but what's the point of subscribing to this for iTunes purchases? They've already been redownload able for some time, and would already be at the same quality... From what I've seen at least this is primarily for tunes you have gotten from other sources ( ripped CDs, downloads, etc)

I'm still trying to figure out why I'd want to use this. I have about 6700 songs, all legit and many bought from iTunes. Those not bought from iTunes were ripped from my own CD's in lossless and I have 256kbs editions. I put what I want on my iPhone and IPad. I stream to an Apple TV and Airport. What would $28 a year get me?

I got it mostly for the ability to have my music on all my computers without actually having it on all my computers (my Air for instance, has limited space) or having to keep them all synced. I'm also planning on re-downloading my lower quality music from rips I made when I was 14 and didn't know any better.

Overall it's something I could easily live without but I cancelled my Rdio subscription for it because it's pretty much doing the same thing (for me).
