According to a report in Advertising Age, Apple's streaming service iTunes Radio launches next month. Though Apple hasn't announced the official date, it appears it will launch next month and major advertising players are already on board to take advantage of the high profile opportunity. iTunes Radio is expected to offer similar services as Pandora and other streaming services, but is designed to be much more accessible than other services since most users already have iTunes loaded onto mobile devices, desktops, laptops, and tablets.

Yesterday's report on iTunes Radio focuses mostly on advertising plans for the service and was written for the ad industry, but some details that may be of interest to streaming music fans was revealed: iTunes Radio users will be able to elect to use the free, ad-supported version of the service, or opt for the subscription based version that omits the ads. The ads will appear in three different forms: audio ads (one every 15 minutes), video ads (one each hour), and "slate" ads which take over whatever screen the user is employing to run iTunes Radio (iPhone, iPad, desktop, laptop, etc). The ad free version of iTunes Radio requires a subscription to Apple's cloud service, iTunes Match, which currently appears to cost $24.99 a year.

Apple also hopes to encourage listeners to purchase music they enjoy and they're posting "purchase" buttons next to every song that streams on iTunes Radio.
