Recently Posted Job Listing Points toward Apple Releasing iTunes Radio in Canada
Apple’s streaming music service, iTunes Radio, which debuted alongside iOS 7 is currently limited to users in the United States. This is something that may change in the near future as Apple appears to be preparing to launch the service in Canada. According to a recent job listing posted by Apple, the company is seeking an iTunes Canada Music Programmer who will be responsible for overseeing the programming of iTunes Radio in Canada. The following is a part of the job description:
The Canadian Music Programmer will be responsible for the programming of iTunes Radio and the iTunes Music store in Canada. This particular role will report directly to the Head of Music for the Canadian iTunes store, and will be responsible for working cross-functionally across a variety of teams including Editorial, Label Relations, Marketing, Sales, Production & Engineering, and more.
The Canadian Music Programmer will be an editorial voice of iTunes Radio, and will be responsible for keeping the product current. This person must have a passion for and deep knowledge of music across numerous genres and decades, and must demonstrate the ability to objectively program content relevant to iTunes customers.
When taking a look at other services similar to iTunes Radio such as iTunes Match, it should be noted that they were also released exclusively in the United States back in November of 2011 before rolling out to international markets a month later. Though Apple hasn’t hinted at a timeline for the international availability of iTunes Radio, it is possible that the rollout fo the service could follow a similar timeline. This means it would become available over the coming months as Apple negotiates licensing deals for each country.
Based on Apple’s senior vice president of Internet software and services Eddy Cue, bringing iTunes Radio to the rest of the world is a top priority for Apple. The company is aiming for it to be released in “more than 100 countries.”

Pathetic Apple. You advertise iTunes Radio as a big new feature but only let USA have it. Really pathetic.

Good thing is it doesn't use location services to see if you're in the US or not, as long as you have an iTunes ID with location : USA. You're good.

I'm not impressed with iTunes Radio, don't see what the big deal is.

This should have been done in the first place, I updated iTunes and The iPad and iPhone for iTunes radio but it didn't show up. So I did some research abd sure enough.

iTunes radio is terrible. It repeats songs, plays songs I've marked as Never Play, and its selection algorithm is bizarre. All the competing services are far better.
