    Is it just me.. or is iTunes Radio working again now for non Apple Music subscribers?

    its been fine for the last day or two.. I'm an iTunes Plus subscriber but it was taken away back in Jan and now it seems to have been returned to us!

    If this is real I might scream quietly....... made such a big hubbub about taking it away only to give it back? But I guess it wouldn't be the first time.

    All the iTunes Radio links give me a sign-up dialog, so I do not know what the OP is talking about.

    Here are two shots from my phone. I'm not an Apple Music subscriber yet my radio stations are working again.

    I subscribe to iTunes Match so maybe they have given it back to those users who have match?

    The old name for iTunes Match where you had ad free radio too. Now it's just iTunes Match.

    Radio is still working perfectly 24 hours later

    Except that none of the visible radio stations are playing. Your phone is playing music, but the source is unknown.

    I am no longer a Match subscriber and iTunes Radio does not work for me.

    .. its working for me.

    the fact that my screen loads radio without a prompt to join apple music should have been good enough guide for you but here is a shot of my phone now playing a station. the earlier shot showing I'm not a apple music subscriber still stands.

    My screen loads radio without a prompt. As I said earlier, if I click on anything I get a dialog box to join Apple Music.

    All I was saying was that your screenshot did not demonstrate what you were trying to demonstrate.
