Suppose I have an AppleID linked to my credit card in my country. Now I would like to browse the ITunes Store of another country.

I know I have to create another AppleID linked to a credit cards (or any other payment option) of that country. However I do not have such a credit card.

My question is: Can I browse or/and consume content in the ITunes store of a foreign country, where I have no credit card, bank account, etc. ?

It depends on the country you will plan to open the account on.

For example, if you want to open an account on US or UK, you could select None as payment method. Payment methods you can use in the iTunes Store, Mac App Store, App Store, and iBooks Store, same website for UK.

If you want to open in in Spain, you don't have this option. ¿Qué métodos de pago puedo usar en el iTunes Store?.

Best option is to open any websites I post before, go to the bottom of the page, select the country you want and check available options.

  • Go onto iTunes and pretend to "Buy" a free app/music. you will be prompted to create an account and the option of None will be avaliable in the US/UK, like jherran said. Creating the account before purchasing wouldn't let you choose None as an option.

You can browse any store without an account. If you scroll to the bottom of the iTunes Store home page, there is a link for Change Country. But without an account, you won't be able to purchase anything. See jherran's answer about options for obtaining an account.
