One thing I find curious is that a new Music menu has been added to Apple TV as well that is tied into the iTunes Match service. What I find curious about it is that a person already has local access on their LAN to all that music. Why would you want to stream it from the cloud? The only place I see this as being useful is in those edge cases where someone may use their Apple TV away from home, cottage or friend's house maybe. Am I missing something here, does anyone else see that as a strange place to add access to iTunes Match?

What if your PC isn't on or you don't want to run iTunes all the time?

This is great news! However, I'm on the iTunes store, I click on iTunes Match, and I can't buy it!
How do you actually go about subscribing?
This is strange... And the fact that Apple wouldn't even put it on the front page at Apple.ca is even more puzzling. Why hide it?

Figured it out... I wasn't update to iTunes 10.5.2, which is why I wasn't presented with the option to subscribe when clicking on the iTunes Match link.
I will likely do this over the Holidays.

So for the past couple of days I have been considering signing up for iTunes match. I have a 60gb collection. Some purchased iTunes songs but mostly ripped cd's. I have multiple libraries on 3 computers all signed in with my itunes account. Will iTunes match look at al lof the music? Say I have the new Killers album on my MBP (and its not on my iMac) will it eventually be available on my iMac? Also this is mostly for use with my iPhone so I can have "access" to my library without having to sync to my MBP. Is anyone using this service? Are they happy with it?

You will have to run the match on each of the libraries you have. Once all your songs have been matched or uploaded, your consolidated library will be available on all your devices. You can either stream it from Apple or you can selectively download them on each of the devices.
