Using the USA iTunes Store in South Africa

I've been using the USA iTunes Store for a couple of years now to buy music, tv shows and rent movies. I've considered posting how I manage to do it, but have always decided against it. Until now..

Its dead simple. Since you don't have a USA credit card, you will instead have to use vouchers. There are a couple of sites where you can buy iTunes Store vouchers. The one I always use is iTunes Express. Simply pay with your South African PayPal account or Credit Card. And you get an email with the voucher code in it 10-15min later.

Then in iTunes, go to the USA iTunes Store and click Redeem. You will have to create a new iTunes Store account. Choose some random address in the USA for you location, and done. That simple. Then just keep topping up with more vouchers.

This little system keeps my Apple TV very happy. Enjoy

Glad you liked this. Best thing is that you can use this in conjunction with an AppleTV. iTunes HD content on your TV. Rent with a click of a button, with almost no streaming. And with uncapped ADSL in SA now, it is much cheaper than renting

Why people may want to buy iTunes USA Gift cards Online ?
Answer is very simply, most of them are outside USA and they do not have any way to buy from the shelf in walgreens ....
Yes iTunes has many stores in many country's but USA iTunes Store is the best , means it has the latest movies, music, games, seasoned movies for everybody. You can rent or buy any newspaper or book , apps for iphone or ipad , mac; you feel the same way like you would be in USA.
Apple iTunes allow such use because they know that many people right now traveling , word is small and many people speak and watch movies in English lastly. That is why iTunes grow up so fast.
If you do not have USA credit card you will not be able use USA iTunes store , that is why is for you to serve online delivery with the code from the gift card widely available in USA.
iTunes allow you open iTunes USA account in USA Store without providing any confidence data such as USA credit card or address for one reason , you need to have iTunes Gift Certificate (code), once you insert it, you are free to use iTunes USA Store !
