    It all depends when your iTunes update rolls out. It does defeat the marketing campaign if they put it on Windows at the same time as their own platform. They want to drive device sales as well as subscriptions.

    Look under 'Free, three month trial membership.'

    The only one that says 'Coming this Fall' is Android. This implies that PC will be available from Day One(or close to it)

    Those are desktop computers... Highly unfair considering iMacs are much more expensive than PCs

    True. It's still a disappointment though. I tried using it but found everything so different and hard to use that I gave up.

    According to Apple it will be available to Mac,PC,iOS,and Watch today. You just have to wait, by the end of the day there should be an update for iTunes that will include it.
