Apple Is Bringing iTunes Radio to Australia

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Apple (AAPL) is going global. #Sarcasm

Apple is bringing iTunes Radio, which it announced in the United States last June and firmly launched in September, to Australia.

The streaming service, which has over 100 stations and all the songs from the iTunes Store, is an ad-supported service, similar to Pandora (P) and Spotify. If users do not want to listen to ads, they can get iTunes Match, for AU$34.99 a year. In addition to cutting out the ads, users can import songs to iCloud, including ones they've downloaded on their iPhone from CDs.

iTunes Radio works on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, PC and Apple TV.

Shares of Apple were higher in Monday trading, gaining 1.8% to $529.25.
