“iPod owners in Britain have something else to look forward to this holiday season: an iTunes music giveaway that offers account holders a free download for each of the 12 days starting December 26, from a selection of tracks,” Eliot Van Buskirk reports for Wired. “A French retailer indicated that the promotion would happen there as well, and German has also been mentioned as possibly venue for the giveaway.”
Van Buskirk reports, “‘For 12 Days of Christmas, we’ve delved deep into our catalog to pull out some real treats for the holiday season,’ reads a note on the site. ‘Check back here every day for rare singles, exclusive live tracks and free music videos from some of the biggest artists in the world today.’ The site will also offer free ‘classic TV episodes’ for iTunes users to choose from.”
Van Buskirk reports, “”An Apple spokesman told Wired.com on Thursday afternoon that the “12 Days” giveaway will not extend to the United States. (Music is licensed regionally; the giveaway is the work of “iTunes SArL,” a wholly owned Apple subsidiary that runs the iTunes store in Europe.)”
