    Is there any way you can purchase music/videos from the american version of the Itunes website if you live in the UK?

    I've heard it's not easy to do, if at all.

    It's probably easier to just download illegally

    Yes, you can. It's a bit of messing about, but it's not too bad. Buy an American iTunes voucher from eBay or something, use any old random American address, a random name, and then you can use it.

    Get an american credit card and connect through a proxy server with an american IP. I heard that works, don't hold me to it though.

    Well, isn't the whole concept of using the American iTunes outside the US classed as fraud? Let's be honest, who the hells gonna know/care? It's not like Apple send your fake address junk mail or anything.

    It is downloading it illegally. As the US site is not licensed to sell to the UK, it's illegal. If you're going down that route you might as well download it for free, and if you feel bad about it, send the artists some anonymous cash.

    I never really got the point of iTunes, if you're going to spend money on music then why settle for such a small selection at such low quality? Anyway, iTunes US is not allowed to sell in the UK, you're breaking several laws and most likely no further up **** creek than if you'd just torrented it anyway. At least you get lossless tracks that way.

    You can use your country's iTunes store anywhere in the world provided you are using a valid credit/debit card, i.e. if you have a existing US iTunes store you can use it provided you use a US payment card to pay for it!

    1. the quality on iTunes is absolutly fine, you can not notice any difference than if you bought a CD

    2. there is a massive selection, in no way shape or form could you describe the iTunes store as "small"!

    3. as long as you use a US credit card you will be able to use the US Store anywhere in the world.
