Apple hasn’t confirmed the outage on the official iTunes Twitter account, but the Twitterverse has taken notice.
Weird. Apple Status page says iTunes Store is fine. But I get “service unavailable” errors on all my Macs and iOS devices.

@AppleSupport iTunes Store is also down in Austria. Cannot connect.

Check out the screenshot below to see areas where users have reported the interruption.
The official Apple status page doesn’t seem to indicate the issue either, so it’s likely the outage is intermittent.
We’ll keep you posted as the service gets back up. Hopefully, everything gets back to normal soon.
Meanwhile… find something else to do. Duh.
Update: Apple doesn’t seem to be acknowledging the issue, but there’s clearly something going around.
@nrowntree We haven't received any other reports. Which device are you downloading on? Have you tested another network? Let us know!
