Apple announced that it has launched an official iTunes store for Brazil. The service includes content from local artists including Ivete Sangalo, Marisa Monte and the digital debut of Roberto Carlos' catalog.
Brazilians also have access to over 20 million songs, and over 1,000 movies to rent or purchase in HD from all major movie studios.
Apple is also bringing the iTunes Store to 15 additional Latin American countries including Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru and Venezuela.
All music on iTunes comes in iTunes Plus, Apple's DRM-free format with high-quality 256 kbps AAC encoding, while iTunes in the Cloud lets you download your previously purchased iTunes music to all your iOS devices at no additional cost, and new music purchases can be downloaded automatically to all your devices.
