How To access iTunes Match:

  1. Be sure that you've downloaded the latest version -  iTunes 10.5.1.
  2. Click on the iTunes Match button which now appears in the right side bar of the main iTunes Store home page.

  1. No, it’s just $25 a year. Unlimited number of songs bought from iTunes and up to 25K songs not from iTunes. It’s the cheapest music cloud storage service I have found. Compare with Amazon which is much more expensive.
