Apple first introduced iTunes in the Cloud in 2011 alongside the release of its iCloud service. As of last September, iTunes in the Cloud had over 200 million users.

The company has been gradually introducing the service to other countries. Currently, only Australia, Canada, the UK and the US are listed as supporting both movies and TV Shows for iTunes in the Cloud, though over 80 countries are listed as supporting movies.
