Since its June 30 launch, the Beats 1 radio station has seen several world first song releases and exclusive interviews, being the first platform to play Pharrell's Freedom and air an interview with Eminem before his Phenomenal music video debuted on Apple Music.

Apple is aiming to lure customers to Apple Music and its Beats 1 radio station by offering content that is unavailable on other music services. In addition to premiering world first songs on Beats 1, Apple Music is the only service that offers Dr. Dre's album The Chronic and Taylor Swift's 1989.

In before "omg sucks so bad for consumers." Beats 1 is free to listen.
Exclusivity is rarely a good thing, especially with music.

But only if you have an Apple product or are willing to install iTunes on a Windows PC. I happen to know a lot of people who wouldn’t want to touch iTunes with a barge-pole. iTunes had gained such a bad reputation and it’s only more cluttered and bloated since Apple Music. A web stream on iCloud.com ('http://icloud.com') would be nice.

Even though I haven't listened to the Beats 1 radio too much, I think it's clear to say that Apple is really spending time and resources to get this right. In my eyes, it just doesn't feel like a side-product but more like a good basic product with a nice potential. Music suggestions have been really good for me based on my preferences and only some tweaks so can't complaint so far.

I really gave beats1 a go since launch , I really wanted to like it ,though I admit I am too old for it, and they do not play any classic rock. The teenagers must love it though. And it's only free if u have an apple device or a willing to use iTunes.
