iTunes gets into the radio/stream business

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

Apple had recently held its worldwide developers conference and released their plan for a streaming service. Its name iTunes Radio.

Set to launch in the fall the service will be free of ads to Apple TV and iOS devices. Apple struck a licensing deal with music companies instead of a compulsory license from the government doubling the ad revenue paid by Pandora under an Internet radio rate established by the government.

Like Pandora , if you're listening to a song you like from iTunes Radio or your music library you will be able to have a station built around those thus, giving you your own personalized station. The new thing is, it will give access to a live stream to special events and iTunes sessions. It will as have the Siri function so you can ask questions like who sings a particular song or ask for a certain genre of music.

iTunes Radio will be available through the iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, iPad mini, Mac, Apple TV, and PCs with iTunes.
