It looks like someone at Apple decided to release iTunes Match to international customers outside the US, as a number of users in the UK, Australia, NZ and Europe were able to subscribe to the service.
Although it would appear that Apple has rolled out iTunes Match earlier than they had intended, and it has now been removed, and Apple has started to refund people outside the US who signed up to the iTunes Match service.
The same thing happened last week when Apple rolled out an update to the Apple TV, which let users outside the US rent TV shows direct from their Apple TV, although this update was pulled pretty quickly after it was released.
We don’t have any information as yet on when Apple will release iTunes Match outside of the US, but we suspect we wont have to wait very long.
