Apple to launch 24/7 global radio station

A worldwide radio station playing ‘nonstop music’ from London, LA and New York is to be launched by Apple.

The service, called Beats 1, is part of the new Apple Music service with offers a new streaming service broadcasting live 24 hours a day.

It will be available in over 100 countries to help listeners discover new artists. “No matter where you are, you can hear the same programming as every other listener,” Apple says.

Former BBC Radio 1 presenter Zane Lowe will feature on the station from LA, along with a number of other well known voices including Julie Adenuga in London and Ebro Darden from NYC.

Zane Lowe will host the 9am – 11am show from LA – which will be 5pm – 7pm UK, with an hour of non-stop music 11am-12pm (7pm-8pm) then Julie Adenuga at 12pm (8pm).

Apple Music is three things – a revolutionary music service – a radio station – and Connect, a way for established and unsigned artists to upload music and reach listeners. It is a result of previous services such as iTunes Radio and Beats Music.

It costs $10 per month (or $15 per month for a family of 6) but the radio station is available free. It launches on iOS on June 30th and later this year on Windows and Android.
