iTunes Radio, Apple’s ad-supported Internet radio service, is today available with “limited interruptions” courtesy of Verizon. That means that you won’t be seeing the normal ads you’re used to on the service and instead just a message from Verizon that states, “Enjoy with limited interruptions courtesy of Verizon.” The company is also handing out $5 iTunes store credits through a banner ad on iTunes Radio (pictured above).
It’s not just for Verizon customers, however, as the offer comes today only as part of Verizon’s “Connection Day” promotion offering free digital content and services to all users, not just Verizon customers.

iTunes Radio users that pay for Apple’s iTunes Match service for storing music already have access to the service without ads, and those users don’t appear to be able to access the $5 iTunes credit promotion. Verizon notes that “iTunes Match customers are not eligible to receive the offer via iTunes Radio due to opt-out of ads.”
The deal is only available to US customers on iOS devices (although it’s appeared for us on Mac too) and lasts only during Verizon’s Connection Day promotion today.
