Apple announces iTunes Radio for iOS 7, Mac, PC & Apple TV - Page 2

post #41 of 45

Based on what I've seen, it seems we can't download the radio stations for listening offline. That's quite disappointing because I would prefer to download the radio stations first through my Wi-Fi connection while I'm at home, and only listen to those downloaded stations while on-the-go. I don't wanna burn through my data quota on my mobile plan really fast.

 

Let's hope they do add this download feature in the final version.

It's all done through the same content owners, who don't seem to mind that they can tie things up and charge more in some places than others.

 

"Regional" is an old concept which has to be replaced with worldwide licensing.

 

License once, play anywhere.

Better than my Bose, better than my Skullcandy's, listening to Mozart through my LeBron James limited edition PowerBeats by Dre is almost as good as my Sennheisers.

I ask again:

 

"What's the difference between this and Pandora/Spotify?"

 

Can someone please explain?

 

One difference

 

Ad free (iTunes match) costs $25 a year vs $120 for Spotify.

 

I see no reason to pay such a large "spotify" tax.

In a nutshell Pandora was designed to work like Radio (without the annoying DJ's). You pick an artist or artists you like, and it gives you that type of music. It also does comedy (e.g. Eddie Murphy, etc.). Good for discovering new music based on things you like. There are a free ad supported version as well as a paid no ad version. 

 

Spotify started off letting people listen to the actual songs they like. Now it has branched out a bit and offers a Spotify like service as well (but you can't stream the music for as long (at least not for free)). There is free and paid versions as well. 

 

Spotify is also owned by the big labels. It pays the artists less then Spotify and iTunes does. iRadio is more like Pandora in that you can't pick the exact song you want to hear. You can pick something like Prince, and it will start off playing a Prince song. It then will pick similar music based on your input. Essentially it is like radio, but better. 

Thank you! Very helpful

That skinny MF with the high voice? Kidding; I like funky music!
