Apple will end this month to stop offering free radio stations from iTunes. Only the channel Beats one remains. In order to gain access to other radio stations, it is necessary to have a subscription to Apple Music.

Users of iTunes Radio received an email from Apple that the service at the end of this month will put stop almost completely. Across BuzzFeed confirms Apple’s plans to phase out iTunes Radio. Probably the company wants to persuade customers to subscribe to Apple Music, in which radio channels are still available. There remains for non-paying users to access the channel made by Apple Beats one, but making a radio channel itself is based on artists or genres are then no longer possible.

Probably stopping the free radio stations via iTunes also something to do with Apple’s iAd advertising platform. The company showed namely know that it will close its doors on 30 June of iAd. The radio stations on iTunes are supported by advertising that can be heard between tracks.

Apple released iTunes Radio in 2013, but after the acquisition of Beats Music moved the company’s focus to paid content via subscriptions. In the Netherlands, iTunes Radio never released.
