Good morning all.

Are there any issues using a USA iTunes acct while outside the states, or is it safer to access it behind a VPN service while in NZ ?

I assume you have to be behind a VPN for streaming via an AppleTV , but how about general app purchasing?

Thanks

Mark.

Itunes don't care beyond the initial credit card check for us residence.

I've happily bought, streamed and operated my US itunes in this country without any geo-relocation at all (for about 4 years now)

Have fun and worry not!

Edit for autocorrect silliness!

Thanks.

That's a weight off my mind. I used a $50 iTunes card when I set up the account and didnt want it to be "blocked" the first time I used it outside a VPN.

Thanks for the quick response :)

Mark.

No worries!

Itunes operates a "you pay, we play" policy and doesn't seem to care if it's "US Cittizens" travel or live overseas for a while ;)

Google 'onesmart' for an easier/cheaper way to pay if your "US credit card" stops working, or your US "family" stop sending your itunes prepay cards for only their face value.

:D
