    Default Apple's iTunes Radio Streaming Music Service Launches in Australia

    Apple's iTunes Radio Streaming Music Service Launches in Australia

    So I have read this in several Apple related sites this morning but it has not shown up yet on my Mavericks iTunes or any of my iDevices.

    Has anybody seen it yet?

    Cheers

    Mine worked without doing anything, on all devices first time, no reboot, no nothing.

    As soon as went to music on iPhone, I was prompted to learn more, same with iMac, had a bit of run with it earlier, looking forward to this, especially as I am a match subscriber, no ads.

    got it running on Mountain Lion on my desktop and had a few tests ,one tracked stalled.
    For now i still favour Radium for customisation and its auto EQ for voice (news) and music.

    I was listening to some music via my Apple TV this morning. When I went to turn it off, the settings icon was not in the normal place. The iTunes Radio had installed while I had the device on. Haven't used it yet.

    Dumb question from me: does listening to iTunes Radio eat into your data?

    It's opt-in for mobile data, where it will apparently use about 28MB/hour.

    I haven't been able to get it to play more than about three songs before stalling. Anybody else?

    Just bumping this. I tried iTunes Radio again today and same problem - it will only play two or three songs and then stall. Anyone else experiencing this or have any ideas on a fix?

    Not quite the same, but mine gets about 1/4 the way through a song and then stalls. Skipping fixes it. Also seeing adds, even though I have itunes match which i'm lead to believe shouldnt be happening?

    I have tried skipping. It plays the next song and then stalls again every time.

    Basic troubleshooting: is this on Mac or iOS? If the former, have you tried it out in a new user account to rule out preferences? If the latter, have you tried streaming over Wi-Fi or 3G? Do you know if it's limited to your network/internet connection (does it happen at work, for example.)

    Rav3n: again, is this on iOS or Mac? I have heard you need iTunes Match turned on in iOS Settings for it to recognise that you're a subscriber, even if you don't actually use it.

    This is on a Mac. I have not tried it on a different account but I have a Mac Pro, Mac mini and MacBook Pro and it is the same on each computer. Network/internet should not be a problem. I can see the songs downloading in the title bar. Songs are fully downloaded to the computer by the time they have played 10-20 seconds. Also, I have no problem streaming video.
