Of course, listening to an online music service is not a case of choosing one exclusively over the others. Many people undoubtedly listen to multiple services at different times. But Apple already has a built-in audience of more than 600 million iTunes users based on data from 2013, so iTunes Radio still has a lot more room to grow.
Conducted in January and February of this year, the survey culled responses from 2,023 people aged 12 and older in the US.
