    Stations were working fine until this week. Now none of them work.
    iTunes 9.2.1

    RE: Radio in iTunes not working now

    This has been happening to me since yesterday night. I've been looking through some forums all which say the solution is to wait. It makes me mad that the problem is at Apple's end and not mine :/

    Actually, I'm quite relieved that it's on their end, and not some'n wrong with my system, that could only be solved by a major upgrade to the OS, since I'm quite happy with 10.5.8!

    @ saberahul: Yes.

    If it is not there, it can be enabled via iTunes > Preferences or CMD+,

    ----------

    You have to contact Apple for that: http://www.apple.com/contact/, as Apple does not read this message board.
    Is that station maybe available via other means, like going to the website and downloading the .pls file there and playing it back via iTunes or VLC Player?

    Working but limited streams

    ...Update...my radio is now working with limited amount of streams available. Of course, not the ones I want to be working!

    Possible Work Around

    I experienced the same issue for the past few days. I wanted to listen to a station under the Jazz group.
    Here's how I have gotten around the issue:
    I clicked the twistee for other music groups until I found a group (about 4 or 5 groups in total) that expanded instead of giving me the error : "An error occured while contacting the radio tuning service. Check your internet connection, or try again later.".
    Then I went back to the Jazz group and clicked the twistee again and it worked.

    I was hoping your work around would work for me. I found a genre that was working but that didn't fix the issue on the other stations that aren't......

    itunes Radio not working fix

    Hi,

    Had this issue too with the latest update. I removed itunes and reloaded a legacy version that did work, 9.21.5. Then followed this tutorial, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UMT0XFxJLrY

    All is as it should be. Hope this helps!

    Madd Mike
