Apple better not use this as an excuse to drop the iPod classic. Streaming will not be a suitable replacement to massive local storage until a 24/7 network connection can be assumed, and the carriers stop their assault on heavy users.

Now you’re talking! I have no pirated music and don’t change what’s on my devices often enough to pay for iTunes Match alone... but if it ALSO lets me stream my whole library painlessly, and free up space on my devices? Well, now the $2/month is sounding pretty good!

I hope they have (or add) the option to set a lower bitrate for streaming. I never come close to reaching my 3G data cap, despite playing a lot of 3G streaming radio (Pandora etc.) in the car. And I want to keep it that way.

Nothing wrong with a little angry birds in you're life. B-)

Please try to understand there is a LOT of data being transferred back and forth currently and that new datacenter is just getting all the kinks worked out.

There's a reason it's called "Beta".

Assuming it is similar to Spotify a 2GB data plan would allow you to listen to about 18 hours a month.

Of course that is assuming you don't do anything else with your iPhone/iPad.

Have fun streaming all that music when you're away from wifi over 3G with those data caps. But hey! At least it will be blazing fast speeds right?
Thats why I'm hoping for 64GB iPhone 5, please let it happen Apple, it hurts so much always struggling to make space for Apps, photos and my music which is over 32GB as it is anyways (I hate picking and choosing).

+ my 6GB Robbers (Rogers) plan would come in handy for this (streaming that is)

On an iOS device would you need to go into the iTunes app to stream or would all your songs appear in the iPod?
Yes. Well, the Music app in iOS 5.

Not holding my breath. We here in the digital wasteland that the Great White North has become, will be at the mercy of The Big Three mobile internet providers who in the face of this new technology will no doubt rush to lower data caps like they did with the arrival of Netflix to Canada. And then there's the @ss clowns from the Canadian Private Copying Collective to deal with...there's never been a bigger group of 'tards put in one room that could stifle the digital movement faster in Canada. Worse than the CRTC...way worse!!

So lets say you get this for a year, when it runs out does all the music you had during that year still count as purchased through iTunes or no?

Anybody know if this also upgrades songs that are 128kbs from iTunes to 256kbs, no DRM version? I would assume that if the iTunes Match service will turn non-iTunes downloaded songs into 256kbs versions, that it would also do the same thing for 128kbs iTunes downloaded songs, acquired legally. Right?

I would happily pay 25 since I have unlimited data. Saves me 100 bucks on a bigger iPhone.

iTunes changed all those 128kbps songs over to 256kbps a long time ago.

They'll love it when they take away unlimited plans when they move you to 4g service. Remember that their contracts state that they can change the terms anytime they want, unfortunately, users can't.

I would hope so...

Remember Apple has prepaid the record industry $140 million already for icloud. If it's not a free upgrade, blame the record labels. I imagine that the labelsmare getting $20 of that $25 every year you pay.

And there were people like me who said there was no way the service WOULDN'T include streaming when it was finally released.

HORRAY for I told you so.

The only thing missing from the equation now is streaming to one's Apple TV, and then we could have a completely cloud-based iTunes library.
