iTunes Radio has appeared on my UK iphone

Strangely it's not appeared on my wife's phone. I do have multiple iTunes account, but my UK account is what we are using on both our phones. Not sure if iTunes match is linked to my UK iTunes account or my iCloud account, though...

Has happened to me a few times over the last 2 months. After a few days it disappears again.

No. Where does it appear anyway? In the Music app? Would it be obvious if I had it?

To UK users on 7.0.x (i.e. not 7.1 betas) who haven't got an iTunes Match subscription, when you go to Settings > Music, do you see this text under the 'Subscribe to iTunes Match':

Quote:
Store all your music in iCloud and get ad-free radio with iTunes Match. Learn more...
It says this on 7.1 beta 4, but I've never paid attention to that in previous versions. I wondered if this is just a localisation mistake (i.e. the UK text shouldn't mention a feature not available in the UK) going back to 7.0 or if the text has changed in 7.1 betas and is an indication we may be getting radio when 7.1 final is released.

Simply create a US App Store account log into it and you'll have access to iTunes Radio, you'' have to log into your main account to purchase apps etc though but it works perfectly fine if you set your email on a keyboard shortcut of @@ for the first email and @@@ for the second email to make switching faster :P:P:P
This is what i'll do until its launched in the UK

This is useles to people with iTunes Match as everything is deleted and you need to re download music you keep stored on the device everytime you switch accounts....it works but is too time consuming.

It simply can't be any worse than UK radio. Ugh.

I set up an iTunes US account to see what it was like and in all honesty I doubt it's a feature I'm going to take up when it launches officially in the UK.

Great so itunes radio can just be another way to listen to commercial pap, because the UK doesn't have enough other ways to do that.

You have ads every two songs? Ads back to back? Video ads? The same 10-15 songs played daily?

Pretty much, except for video ads of course, but also we have moronic DJ's who have had too many psychostimulants jabbering away during songs. The songs are nearly always the synthetic/saccharin top-40 BS. Even the classical music is defiled because they play only short segments of the same songs over and over and over ...

I miss the campus radio stations in the US. At least they had a little variety. I can only get them now if they stream on the internet....

Nothing for me on iPad running 7.1 beta. FWIW I've seen it appear a few times since 7.0 but it won't load and is useless.
