iTunes Radio listeners in the United States can finally tune in to live, 24-hour content from ESPN and National Public Radio.
AppleInsider today reported that iTunes Radio is now serving up ESPN Radio as well as National Public Radio (NPR) content from local affiliates, right from any iOS 7 device or desktop computer with the latest version of iTunes.
First spotted by Twitter user Aaron Ruhlig, Apple appears to have flipped the switch on the new content Tuesday morning. The channels are different from the typical custom-built stations on iTunes Radio, instead matching the same live, 24/7 content heard by traditional radio listeners.
While NPR launched national network content back in March, the provider appears to have lit up local affiliate channels this week, including major markets such as New York and Los Angeles as well as smaller local markets.
iTunes Radio can be found from a dedicated tab in the Music app on devices running iOS 7, as well as iTunes running on a Mac or PC.
