Featuring two new stations.
Apple is rebranding its Beats 1 radio station to Apple Music 1 and introduces two new stations that are now available to users across 165 countries. The new stations include Apple Music Hits and Apple Music Country.
Apple Music Hits should be a favorite among casual listeners, offering a full catalog of some of the biggest songs from the 80s, 90s, and the 2000s. The station will include new shows from different artists and hosts, who all share the same love for old school music that became popular all around the world.
Apple Music Country on the other hand, will be highlighting the best in country music. The station will include a mix of some of the best country music from stars that helped define the genre.
“For the past five years, if ever there was a meaningful moment in music culture, Beats 1 was there bringing human curation to the forefront and drawing in listeners with exclusive shows from some of the most innovative, respected, and beloved people in music,” said Oliver Schusser, vice president of Apple Music, Beats, and International Content. “Now, Apple Music radio provides an unparalleled global platform for artists across all genres to talk about, create, and share music with their fans, and this is just the beginning. We will continue to invest in live radio and create opportunities for listeners around the world to connect with the music they love.”
Launching with Apple Music back in 2015, Beats 1 has become one of the most-listened radio stations in the world, offering in-depth interviews and a plethora of global exclusives presented in a unique programming format. Apple Music 1 aims to continue that evolution across all three stations.
Apple Music Radio can be accessed through Apple Music available on the iPhone, iPad, iPod, CarPlay, Apple Watch, Apple TV, Mac, HomePod, and on the web.
