Nissan, Pepsi, Proctor & Gamble among early iTunes Radio advertisers
A number of major advertisers have lined up to advertise on Apple's upcoming <a href="">iTunes Radio</a> service. According to <em>Ad Age</em>, the list so far includes "McDonald's, Nissan, Pepsi, Procter & Gamble and possibly one or two more brands," all of whom have reportedly signed 12-month contracts. Targeting will initially be device-agnostic, but in 2014 advertisers will get the option to direct spots at specific devices, with costs varying proportionately. An ad will be cheap on the iPhone, for instance, but more expensive on an iPad, and even more costly on an Apple TV.<br /><br />Listeners should expect an audio ad every 15 minutes, and a video ad every hour, <em>Ad Age</em>'s sources <A href="">say</a>. People will be forced to see the video ads at times they're likely looking their screen, such as after hitting the Play or Skip buttons.<br />
<br />
Apple is also allowing advertisers to curate their own stations. Company names will be barred from appearing in station titles, but businesses will be allowed to insert pre-play messages branding the content.<br />
<br />
iTunes Radio is slated to go live around the same time as iOS 7, which is anticipated next month. People will be able to forego ads only by paying for an iTunes Match subscription, which costs $25 per year.

Proctor and Gamble... poisoners of the environment. Great.
Pepsi... poisoners of youth.
Nissan...the McDonalds of cars.

All lovely.

The lifestyle and luxury brands would never opt for a service where a potential would have already bought his way out of viewing ads
