honestly i don't think its coming. there is a way you can use it here but you need to set up an iTunes account that's registered in the US. Then whenever you wanna use iTunes radio, you log into iTunes on your phone with that email. I have three accounts because i use apps from Canada, US and Europe. And i used to use one from Australia so i needed a 4th account for that. lol.
iTunes radio is great for just that....Radio...a continuous stream of like songs that can be set from hits through discovery. I use it every day. I also hold a Spotify account for making playlists and playing individual tracks. Love the EQ and Crossfade. However the pre-made playlists and radio function of Spotify sucks SO HARD it's not even funny. Pandora is even better and I hate Pandora with its endless repeats and overplayed of top 40 Hits. Bottom line, there is no perfect music service. If I could only make my own...
Yeah I uses it every so often, it's still not to a great level yet. I'll hear a lot of the same songs multiple times a day, then if I set it to explore it will pull in music that doesn't even go with the channel I created. Use Pandora instead that works much better.
I agree, Spotify is great.
Except watch your 3g/lte data... I had a big playlist which I downloaded/made available offline and somehow in an hour it used over 200MB while driving. Since then I turn off Cellular Data in iPhone settings for Spotify (I have to live with the nag everytime I launch Spotify). Alternatively can set offline mode in Spotify but not very easy to toggle because its a menu or two deep.
Why do you want iTunes Radio in the first place? It's rubbish! Can't select specific songs that you choose to play. It's purely based on recommendations and iTunes store available content only. It's so limited that Spotify and many other alternative radio apps blow it out of water.
It's purely Apple's marketing trick. You will never see them clearly advertise something available only in the US and may not in your country be at all anytime soon.
