Apple has launched a music TV channel that’ll livestream free and curated music videos 24X7. The channel, called Apple Music TV, will showcase music videos, exclusive premiers, live shows and events, chart countdowns and guests.
The channel has just been launched in the US for now and Apple hasn’t revealed when it will expand the service to other countries. US residents can access it through apple.co/AppleMusicTV or the browse tab of your Apple Music or Apple TV app in Apple devices.
This move increases the competition in the music video streaming space, which was being dominated by MTV and YouTube. The premier of Apple Music TV channel commenced with streaming music videos of 100 most streamed songs on Apple Music in the US.
Here is the full list of songs which are on the Apple Music All-Time Chart announced today in the livestream (Apple Music TV).
