In celebration of Boxing Day, a number of international territories are seeing their local iTunes Stores feature countless digital albums at discounted prices. Brits can pick up albums from as low as £3.99 as part of the offering, while Canadians can get hold of albums and compilations from just $5.99.
Boxing Day, Dec. 26, is recognized as a holiday in a number of international countries, including the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, and Hong Kong. It’s a big discount day overseas, and retailers use the post-Christmas period of Dec. 26 to Jan. 2 to clear stock and offer items for heavily discounted prices.
Not to be left out, Apple has also launched its yearly Boxing Day sale in a handful of iTunes Stores around the world, as 9to5mac notes. Justin Timberlake’s “The 20/20 Experience,” One Direction’s “Take Me Home,” and Bruce Springsteen’s “Greatest Hits” all feature as part of the sale (pictured above).
Before iTunes Connect closed down for Christmas, a huge number of iOS developers discounted their apps for the holiday period, too. Included in this selection are Square Enix, Flexibits, Full Fat Games, SEGA, and more. Plus, as we explained earlier today, Apple has confirmed that it’ll be offering its annual “Lucky Bag” sale in Japan starting Jan. 2, 2014. ’Tis the season to score an iOS-related discount, for sure!
