    Is iTunes radio (free streaming) now no longer?

    I imagine they'll keep it around with some improvements (as speculated by Mark Gurman at 9to5).

    I've been wondering that, still waiting for it in the UK - but the ad-less service was one of the reasons I paid for iTunes Match (expecting it to release here not long after the U.S.). I assume that's now dead in the water?

    The Music tab on Apple.com states Limited skips for non-members in Apple Music radio stations. I imagine this will be the new iteration of iTunes Radio? I'm curious how they will handle iTunes Match bundling.

    I just want the Beats 1 radio access, to be honest. Sounds cooler than hell. Though there is one question, are there any benefits to iTunes Match subscribers that do not subscribe to Apple Music?

    I imagine not. But if you read the membership FAQ's, Apple states that your music will be matched and uploaded in a fashion similar to iTunes Match

    What I want to know, is that since I pay $25/yr for iTunes Match, if I am going to get Apple Music for free since it looks like iTunes Radio is going to go away and I already get that for free with iTunes Match.

    According to the link in a quote to my post above, everyone will get a basic membership that includes Beats1, some stations with limited skips, and some of the other functionality, albeit very limited. If you have iTunes Match, it will still work. Subscribing to Apple Music also seems to give you iTunes Match functionality, unlimited skips, and enhanced features of Apple Music.
