Does anyone think that iTunes Match will be a part of the Apple Music service launching tomorrow? since there is an iCloud Music Library now wont that mean unlimited uploads with Apple Music now?

Nope. If you want to just use iTunes Match and not pay for streaming, you can. But if you want to use Apple Music, you pay $10/month and you can upload 25,000 of your own songs and have access to them. This is at least what I understand from Eddy Cue's tweets and a couple of articles I read today. It also sounds like those song limits might be 100,000 in iOS 9.

This is what I'm wondering. My iTunes Match is supposed to automatically supposed to renew tomorrow. Not sure if I should let it because of the free trial, and possibly even buying into Apple Music.
