Apple to fold iTunes Radio into Apple Music – Now Subscription Only – More details

Cultofmac is reporting that Apple Music is shutting down its ad-supported radio as of January 28, pushing Beats 1 as the premier free “broadcast” for Apple. Apple sent the news out in an email to subscribers and free listeners today.

You’ll still be able to listen to all the Apple Music radio as an Apple Music member, but not as a free listener.

Radio is a tab in iTunes under the Music section that had been supported by ads. Apple clearly is moving away from ads, along with ditching it failed iAds program.

Beats 1 will continue to be the free tier of Apple Music.

The simply solution here is to use a FM or DAB Radio or an app like Tunein. Much cheaper solutions too!
