Working with Music Streams and keeping them running

I am working on a application that is currently being built in Android. I have spent quiet a while now separating out the .NET code from the application layer.

One of the main activity our application does is play a music stream from an online source, which since I have been coding for Android right now, is being implemented through an Android Service. This way if the user navigates away from the activity (or even our application) the stream can continue to play in the background.

I obviously can see that as an "Android" Service, it is most likely not part of the reusable code I can take over to iOS. So how difficult is it doing what I need (want) to do here. Is there something similar to a Service that will allow me to do this on an iOS app? I have also never worked with iOS development and barely scratched it using Xamarin.
