    With as much trouble as I had with it, I don't think I'll be renewing.

    It's been a stupid crock sometimes but all in all it's been nice to access my music on all devices, on the work computer, etc. now that they don't insist on streaming me the "clean" versions of songs.

    For as much as I love Match, I just wish it matched available music a lot better than it currently does. Blows having 13 out of 14 matched from the same single CD album, with the 14th being unrecognized.

    Apple should be giving a free 6 months to people. It wasn't as if iTunes mis-match was problem free. Frankly it's screwed up my library (wrt to explicit songs being matched incorrectly) and cost me a lot of time.

    Already Cancelled

    After my iPhone started to delete new songs on me after about a month after purchase, I decided to cancel my sub. I was close to the limit with 24900 or so songs, so may have been kicked soon anyway. Redownloading was not a viable fix as they suggest, but rather a weak work around for a larger underlying problem. I was not the only one with the issue as many others had it and reported it on their forums.

    I still haven't signed up for this. I finally was ready to pull the trigger when iOS 6 was released -- until I found out the ability to manage songs on iOS devices had been gimped. I think I'll wait to see how this shakes out with the new iTunes.

    Although there's been a few hiccups in the first year.. Maybe as time goes on.. Apple will iron out the bugs.. and now that iTunes 11 is approaching. I'm sure it will be better..

    So, I'll be renewing..

    too bad it was for 25,000 or less songs.
    I cannot match my library of music. (still have binders of music waiting to be imported)

    And for what it is worth, if I've wanted a song/album, i try and remember when I am at home and boom have it the next day. so $25 saved.

    Folks like you are why they are sending out the emails. Once the auto-renew kicks in you are stuck. By the terms you agreed to when you signed up, they have the right as given by you to auto renew if you don't tell them not to. But you'd forget your anniversary date, get charged and call and yell at them. So they remind you that said date is coming up and if you forget that's on you.

    It's a clever move and a good one. Although it won't stop all the folks from forgetting and complaining but it should stop a few.

    Nope. no video.

    probably won't ever be because the studios will never allow that. Not unless they charge way more than $25 a year. $1000 a year would be more to the studios likely. And a limit of 200 movies or tv shows.

    "News and rumors you care about"

    I imagine the only people that 'care about' this are iTunes Match subscribers. And they'll be getting the email.

    Really don't see why this is on the front page.

    Same issue for me, I have 26,000 tracks and it won't let me sign up. I'd pay a bit more if they offered the option but they don't so I'm considering trying Amazon's solution.

    Most of my stuff won't match as its soundtracks, many are limited editions and aren't available digitally anywhere so iTunes doesn't have a hope in hell of recognizing them.

    Funnily enough, I had that happen just today, but upon checking, the errant track was labelled 'album only' by the iTunes store buying option. I should probably check other 'one track missing' albums to see if there's a similar reason.

    Works well enough for my needs, though.

    Great for all the free Amazon music I get

    on a side note, Amazon really sucks now, makes you register your computers....

    already got this mail over 3 weeks ago

    never use it on my iDevices tho, i personally think the service sucks and needs so many improvements i cant even be bothered to list them all. the only reason for me to renew is cuz i only got a 128 gb ssd built in and its perfect to store tunes i barely listen to any more
