Apple iTunes Radio Services launched

Apple Inc has recently released iTunes Radio on Monday as it opened it annual developer discussion in San Francisco, offering it as an different to the internet radio service Pandora, giving user’s right to use to over 200 curate radio stations featuring music from the iTunes music catalogue.

iTunes Radio Services will be accessible on iOS devices (iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch) running iOS 7 as well as the iTunes on the Mac or PC. Some of the pre-packaged stations consist of Summer Songs and Trending on Twitter (which appears to pull in songs from Twitter Music).

Apple complete deals with the major music labels for iTunes Radio in the last few weeks, reports specify. The company first signed on Universal Music, then Warner and to finish Sony just a few days ago.

The music streaming service is coming to the US first, with other countries being added over time. It is set to launch in the US this fall (that's autumn to the rest of us).

Apple's Eddy Cue ran through Pandora-like 'radio stations' which it hopes will transfigure how you find new music - with the ever-present buy button reminding you that you can, of course, buy the songs from iTunes.

Free with ads, it's entirely free to iTunes Match subscribers, coming totally ad-free to those folks. No separate subscription plan then will give Apple a big boost here in the fight against Spotify, though there was no word of offline playlists either, suggesting the company are still trying to get people to splash the cash on tune downloads through iTunes.
