Apple Launches iTunes Radio Down Under

Apple announced this morning that its iTunes Radio music service has finally branched out from being available only in the U.S.

Starting today iTunes users in Australia can start using Apple’s free Internet radio service, after iTunes Radio originally debuted in the U.S. last September alongside iOS 7. 

Apple has said it ultimately hopes to launch iTunes Radio in more than 100 countries, with reports last year claiming the company is pushing to expand its availability to the U.K., Canada, Australia and New Zealand in early 2014.

The free music service is supported by ads, but if you’d rather skip through the rubbish you can make the service ad-free by signing up for iTunes Match at AU$34.99 for a year.

    Been using it all morning. Made a few custom stations based on artists and music I listen to. What it comes back with is very enjoyable. I’ll defiantly use it more often. Especially for playing stuff around the house.
