I started US iTunesDirect in 2010 to give my Aussie mates & mates from all over the world access the US Apple iTunes store and get ripper deals on Music, TV shows, Movies and Apps up to 70% below cost and up to 12 months in advance of other countries release dates. Since then we have passed 70,000+ orders and US iTunesDirect is gaining in popularity every single week as more people across the pond discover the value. Once you give the US Apple iTunes Store a go, you will never go back! Cheers
