Apple adds Chinese pop music to iTunes

Posted on Sunday, February 06 2005 @ 23:06 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
For the first time a huge range of Chinese pop music will become available to music consumers in North America and Europe as Apple will add more than 1,000 tracks to its iTunes service.
Universal says it is the first time this range of Chinese music will be legally available online outside its region of origin. The move represents Universal's faith in the continuing growth of the legal download market.

The launch, to coincide with the Chinese lunar new year tomorrow, is aimed especially at the big overseas Chinese population, which has been able to access the music in physical form only through a limited number of specialist retailers.
