    Noticed on the Apple Music US website that it will be arriving on 6.30 but on the Canadian site its 'coming soon'. Hope that's not a sign to come, I guess I better hold onto my spotify account for a little longer...

    Canadian site.

    I too am disturbed by this. It's launching in 100 countries on June 30 and Canada isn't one of them? Can it be true?

    The UK site says the same, I think Apple just uses different wording outside the US. The UK Music site also doesn't say anything about the membership price.

    Also concerning is that they specifically omit the Apple Music ads from the Canadian site. Is there something in the ads that won't be available in Canada?

    There is tangible evidence that we won't be getting the full Apple Music experience. For example, they left out the reference to skipping songs on Radio. The US allows limited skips on free radio and unlimited skips with a membership. No skips in Canada. Free radio isn't available in Canada in fact. You must have a membership.

    It's also a little bit weird that prices haven't been announced yet with just a few days to go until launch. Certainly, they can't be considering a price over $9.99. They'd be beat by Google, Spotify and Rdio prices which all remain below CAD$10.
