iTunes Radio is starting its rollout to the world at large, beginning with Australia as was announced today by Apple. First introduced at WWDC in June of 2013 and later launched as part of iOS 7’s release in the US, the service is Apple’s answer to competing music services like Pandora and Spotify.

Unlike the backwards-flushing toilets found down under, iTunes Radio will provide an identical feature set for those in Australia. The service is free for iPhone, iPod, and iPad owners with iOS 7 devices as well as Apple TV and iTunes 11 users, provided they don’t mind hearing a few ads interspersed. iTunes Match subscribers will be afforded ad-free streaming radio.

iTunes Radio operates in the same vein as Pandora, providing smart radio streams based around an artist, genre, or song of the listener’s choosing. The service also comes with a number of featured stations. When we first got our hands on it, we determined it was a solid start but needed some time to mature. That time has passed, and now new users the world over will get a chance to see what iTunes Radio is all about.
