Puerto Rico is not a country...it's a U.S. territory.

Interesting how Apple Music Radio requires an Apple Music membership in all countries outside of the US.

Can someone explain me why are they repeating Lowe's segment? I thought it was a LIVE radio station 24/7

Not available in Taiwan?? Interesting.

I don't understand how iTR was basically in 1 country for 'decades' but this is everywhere at release.

All the sudden they could make agreements with Beats? Weird. Just because of Jimmy?

I tuned in, and it really seems to have the issue everyone predicted for a "single radio station for everyone". The music just isn't to my taste. It seems to very much focus on the teenage audience.

Way too much autotune and vocoder for my liking. Almost every song has the "Cher Effect" (and a rap solo).

BBC has Radio 1, Radio 2, etc... Apple needs the same. It may come in time, but for now, it seems they've gone for something to appeal to a teenage audience.

There's a reason that BBC Radio 2 has an audience share three times that of BBC Radio 1... a larger audience exists for adult contemporary music and AOR than for chart hits. Hopefully Apple realises this soon.

Pretty sure it's more than just an"teenage" audience.

Bizarrely, Beats 1 is NOT available in Jersey (in the Channel Islands). Luckily I have Surfeasy VPN installed and so it was a simple matter to "relocate" to mainland UK, US etc!

I guess geopolitics wasn't your strong point.


I believe that was a sarcastic comment ;)

No need to use iTunes or Apple gear.
