Apple Music is available in these 100 countries – but not in China

Apple Music is a week old, and has started disseminating its streaming data to record companies.

But where is that data coming from – and what is Apple Music’s true potential around the world?

The platform has launched in 100 territories worldwide and, in terms of its potential to legitimise huge chunks of piracy-dominated territories, some will excite labels more than others.

Apple Music is now officially in Russia, for example, a territory that’s home to 144m people but contributed just $72.8m to the global record industry last year.

Russia has recently passed some strong-arm anti-piracy legislation, so Apple’s timing couldn’t be better.

Then there’s India; a country with a population of 1.2bn people, where free streaming services are beginning to dominate the market.

You can see the full list of territories that Apple Music – along with its three-month free trial offer and global radio station Beats 1 – has now arrived below.

One country that record labels must be disappointed not to see on the roll-call is China, although Apple Music has been launched in Hong Kong.
