Hi everyone,
I haven't updated to 8.4 yet because I don't want to lose free music streaming through the music app. Am I right in saying the only streaming music available now through apples music app is a subscription based streaming service? I know it's free for three months and I would rather use the native app so I don't have to download another app but why would I ever pay money for streaming when there are so many free alternatives?

I'm not sure as I never used them. Maybe someone else will know? The new ones include the Beats 1 station and then general categories like: hard rock, classic rock, country, etc.
Isn't the beats one station only free for the three month trial?

So the radio part is beats radio or the iTunes Radio that they had previously?
I have no prior experience with iTunes Radio so I'm not really sure.

But the wording from Apple's site says the radio (including beats 1) will be free.
