iTunes Radio was one of the staple features of iOS 7. With it, Apple offered a complete competitor to Pandora or other streaming services for free, and integrated directly in to the music app on every new or updated iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. That’s a powerful proposition, and users have already reported that they enjoy the service and its seamless integration.
However, the largest limitation of the service has been its geographic restrictions: unlock other streaming services, iTunes Radio is only available in the United States. That appears to be changing: Bloomberg reports that Apple is actively negotiating deals to open the service in the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, and that the company expects to offer the service in these locations and more by early 2014.
