Streaming services continue to take heat from all kinds of musicians, but that isn’t slowing Apple down. In fact, it looks like Apple is getting ready to take iTunes Radio global. The service is currently limited to the United States and Australia.
The head of marketing at media agency OMD UK tweeted that someone from Apple iAd in London came in to discuss iTunes Radio:
Great to see @paulwright66 back at @OMD_UK to take us through Apple’s iAd and iTunes Radio – can’t wait for that to hit UK!

Apple also recently kicked UK-based streaming music company Bloom.fm off their iAd network, because Bloom is a “competing service”.
The expansion doesn’t stop there. AppleInsider is now reporting that iTunes Radio is currently available in Ecuador on Apple desktops. It’s not available on other platforms, which could mean that Apple is testing out the service.
