The spokesman said, “We were surprised at Apple’s decision to ban us from their iAd network as their iTunes Radio service isn’t even available in the UK.” He added, “Bloom.fm gives you 22 million tracks for £1 a month – the price of a single download on iTunes – so I can see why they’d want to protect their business.”
The spokesman’s statement is logical, as Apple is going to launch the iTunes Radio service in the UK very soon. With a huge number of subscribers, Bloom.fm is definitely a big threat for Apple in the radio market.
Nonetheless, the spokesman believes that Apple’s prohibition will not be able to create a negative impact on his company. He said, “[Apple’s] decision isn’t going to affect our growth and it’s actually quite flattering they see us as such a threat.”
However, Apple hasn’t made any comment regarding the issue.
