iTunes Radio is free streaming radio with the best selection of music. It builds and brings together stations you’ll love from day one. And the more you listen, the more personalised your stations become. It’s radio re-imagined.
The music you love. And the music you’re going to love.
Check out iTunes Radio on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, PC or Apple TV.1 iTunes Radio has streaming stations you’ll love from day one — like DJ-curated or genre-specific radio stations, all with crystal-clear sound quality. And iTunes Radio includes First Plays, so you can listen to selected full albums before buying them. Your stations evolve based on the music you play and download. So the more you use iTunes Radio and iTunes, the more iTunes Radio knows what you like to listen to — and the more it can play music you’ll love.
Play by your own rules.
It’s easy to create and customise stations based on whatever you want to hear. iTunes Radio can build stations around artists, songs or genres you choose. Use the search field at the top of the screen to find a specific artist. Or if you’re listening to a song you like from iTunes Radio or your music library, you can build a station around that too.
While you’re listening, you can make adjustments by tapping Play More Like This or Never Play This Song. To add, delete or reorder stations, just go to Edit Stations. That’s also where you can select artists, songs and genres you want to play more or never play. It makes discovering new favourites easier than ever.

Get started with Featured Stations.
iTunes Radio comes with ready-to-play stations that cover everything from up-and-coming artists to seasonal picks to world news and more.
You can listen to iTunes Radio on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, PC and Apple TV.1 All your stations are stored in iCloud, so if you stop playing a station on one device, you can pick it up on another — no syncing required. And no matter what device you listen on, your stations become more personalised with every song you play.

iTunes Radio music is ad-free with iTunes Match.
Subscribe to iTunes Match on your Mac, PC or iOS device, and you can listen to music on iTunes Radio without ads. And iTunes Match stores all your music in iCloud — even songs you’ve imported from CDs or purchased somewhere other than iTunes. So iTunes Radio can use your entire music collection to make your stations even more personalised.
iTunes Radio makes it easy to get songs out of your head and into your library. Just check your History for a list of everything you’ve heard or added to your Wish List. When you find a song or album you want, tap Buy, and it begins downloading from iTunes. And with iCloud, your History and Wish List are available on all your devices.
Siri takes your requests.
Whether you’re in the car, working out or just hanging out, you can ask Siri on your iOS device to play what you’re in the mood to hear. For instance, if you’re listening to your favourite hip hop track, tell Siri “Play more like this” and you’ll hear similar songs. Ask Siri to play any of your favourite genres or stations. Or pause, stop or skip to the next song. And now Siri works with Shazam, the amazing app that identifies whatever song is playing. As soon as you hear a song you like, just ask Siri “What song is this?” to find out the artist, track, album and more. You can purchase the song immediately from the iTunes Store. Or Siri can add it to your Wish List so you can buy it later.
Hear it here first.
iTunes has the largest music catalogue of its kind — over 43 million songs2 — and iTunes Radio will play some of that music before you hear it anywhere else. Whether it’s an exclusive track from an up-and-coming band or a prerelease of the next big hit, iTunes Radio has you covered.
Share your favourite stations.
With iTunes Radio, you can easily share stations via AirDrop, Mail, Messages, Twitter and Facebook. The stations you share continue to change as you tweak the mix, so your friends can listen to music that adjusts with your evolving tastes. Show off your favourite stations, or tune in to your friends’ to hear what they’re into.
