Hello everyone,
I have a weird issue with my macbook pro retina - late 2013 model.
iTunes store does not show anything under my home wifi network - other wifi networks are great.
This happened in the last week or so, i tried to reset the router without success so far, what could be the problem?
I have the latest updates to mavericks, iTunes works fine other than that specific problem, tried to delete and re install it, didn't worked - tried to reset safari - didn't helped either.

Please advice..

Thank you for your help.

Try changing your DNS to 8.8.8.8

Given that it only happens on your home network, the router configuration is the most likely cause. Could be the DNS settings in the router (I always replace the ISPs DNS info with either Google [8.8.8.8 & 8.8.4.4] or OpenDNS), or something relating to port forwarding and/or QoS being enabled. If it was related to the iTunes software itself or whichever version of OS X you're running, it wouldn't be specific to one network.

Reset iTunes Store cache

I had this same issue today, and it was so vexing! I tried restarting, reinstalling iTunes, updating my DNS settings, throwing away and rebuilding .plists, and nothing seemed to help. I knew it was a preference/cache-type issue because iTunes worked fine when I created a new user account. Then I figured it out after going through every preference setting in iTunes.

Go to the iTunes menu > Preferences > Advanced tab > Reset iTunes Store cache > and click the Reset cache button.

Voila!

(Hopefully it works for you, too.)

Solved

:D
I did something else, i had to call the ISP and tell them about it, they did a reset to the router and it worked, it's the first time i noticed a complex issue like this, and i am not surprised, after all it's Apple, everything got to be complex.
Thank you for answering after all this time.

Reset cache :)

Just resetting cache worked like a charm to me! :)

Thank you jujubeebop,

I had this problem and reseting the cache worked. No need to bother my ISP.

[doublepost=1489063630][/doublepost]Worked like a charm, even 8 years on. Never had the problem before. Tried lots of other things that didn't work. So simple. Thanks.

Since yesterday I can not access apple music on one of my macs running 10.11.6 and iTunes 12.8.2.3.
The 'Browse' tab stays blank and I cannot choose any music. I can listen to my recently played songs in history but nothing else. On my iPhone and my other macs everything is fine. Is there anything i can do?
What I tried: Reset iTunes cache, log out and back into iCloud, update network settings.
This is frustrating, according to apple El Capitan should be still supported.
Thank you!

YUuuup. Same thing happening here. Such a shame…I NEED this older machine to keep working! It's my family's media center as well as to run a bunch of legacy programs. This is a mistake, apparently, with an update to Apple Music (because there were no iTunes or Mavericks, etc, updates). I'll be escalating this to Apple, and I hope all you will too. I'll report back if I can find a solution, or get any more information.

Apparently it's fixed on the server side now. When I tried it today it first showed the apple loading wheel and than the content came back. Phew..

I ended up installing iTunes 12.4.3.
It works now though the old gui really looks aged.
Backup before you do the same. Keep in mind that you have to get rid of your library to make the older version work.
I really hope they will fix it again on the server side.
