Apple Music all devices teaser 001

Apple’s new music package, available across 115 countries around the world, packs in Apple Music Radio, Beats 1 Radio, iTunes Match and Apple Music on-demand streaming. But not all of these services are available in each and every country.

For example, people in Romania can only enjoy iTunes Match. Beats 1 Radio is currently off-limits in nearly two dozen countries. In addition, eight countries currently lack access to Apple Music, Apple Music Radio and Beats 1 Radio.

This article helps you find out in which countries you can join Apple Music, listen to Apple Music Radio (formerly iTunes Radio) and Beats 1 Radio or subscribe to iTunes Match.

As mentioned before, not all features are available in each country.

Apple’s chart seen below lists key Apple Music features limited to paid members (three-month trial accounts included) versus those freely available to non-members who are signed in with their Apple ID.

Apple Music Radio membership requirement

Just to clear up any confusion, Apple Music Radio is basically a rebranded, reworked iTunes Radio service which no longer exists. It’s still available at no cost, with ads and limited skipping.

Currently, only folks in the following markets can listen to Apple Music Radio just by signing in with their Apple ID:

  • Australia
  • United States

Everyone else will need an Apple Music membership to enjoy Apple Music Radio.

Beats 1 Radio free streaming

Unlike Apple Music Radio, Beats 1 Radio is available at no cost across all supported markets. An Apple Music membership isn’t enquired to listen to Beats 1 Radio, all you need is an Apple ID.

iTunes Match availability

iTunes Match is available through both Apple Music and as a standalone service for $24.99 per year. As a standalone service, iTunes Match is available in all countries except for:

  • Romania

Apple also provides a webpage with a handy breakdown of Apple Music availability in countries across Africa, Middle East and India; Asia Pacific; Europe; Latin America and the Caribbean; and The United States and Canada.

We’ll update this article as soon as Apple Music, Apple Music Radio, Beats 1 Radio and iTunes Match roll out in additional countries.

Are any of these services available in your home country? And if so, what’s your experience with Apple Music, Apple Music Radio, Beats 1 Radio and iTunes Match been like thus far?

    With US account everything works fine but with netherland accounts just Beats 1 Radio.

    • Linton Findlay

      get exactly the same problem in the UK. hopefully it just means thats its rolling out slowly

  • Koyak

    In Puerto Rico, a territory of the US, I can listen Beats 1 over cellular(US IP’s) but not over WiFi(PR IP’s)

  • Marlon Brown

    Jamaica is never on these lists 🙁 . We always get neglected

  • jp2002

    Im pretty surprised its launched in India, as apple’s support for india is very limited. What surprised me even more was how neatly the catalog is arranged based on languages. And the best is their pricing – Rs.120/month which is roughly equal to $2/month for the premium plan!

  • Rares

    So Romania has no iTunes Match but St. Kitts & Nevis does, because fu$% logic that’s why. Well… at least we pay only 5 euros for Apple Music :))

  • Dor Pinhas

    One thing I can’t understand is why Israel was in Apple’s list in the first place? We had expectations.
    Apple removed Israel from the list after 12 hours since it launched.

    Totally not cool.

    • Nah, don’t get shocked. They didn’t launch it in Egypt too..

    • Thanks apple for giving apple music in Israel :/

  • Noohar

    South Africa here & we have a very keen price on Apple Music as well. R59 single user which is only about $4.8 #winning

  • Aleksandar Kojić

    And what about Croatia?

  • angel.mariano

    not available in Cuba. 🙁 , hopefully it will be available soon .

  • Beats 1 Radio is not available in the following countries:

    It sounds like Apple needs to change the Beats 1 slogan from “Worldwide, always on” to “Worldwide except for … Always on”. The world is a pretty big place and you shouldn’t claim your service is available worldwide unless it truly is.

    I’m here in the Bahamas and I got everything except Beat 1 radio, which isn’t a big deal, but Apple need to stop thinking that the Bahamas don’t have shit, we have LTE in this bitch so stop limiting your services here in the Bahamas and it’s about time Apple start thinking bout building an store in the Bahamas

  • WiseBlasian

    WTF I paid 55$ for iTunes match.

    That’s a darn remarkable line-up of films and what’s more the very best 10 has no sequels, or movie universes, in it. Although X-Files might be one of my favourite TV reveals ever, I’d say TV on the whole is way better these days though.
