Benny About iTunesDirect

My Goal With iTunesDirect

I started US iTunesDirect in 2010 to give my Aussie mates 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 Aussie release dates. Since then we have passed 100,000+ orders and US iTunesDirect is gaining in popularity every single week as more Aussies discover the value. Once you give the US Apple iTunes Store a go, you will never go back! Cheers
