Apple's licensing deals with the music labels allow the company to launch additional Beats stations whenever it wants. Citing unnamed sourced, The Verge reported that Apple has the power to launch new stations—thinks Beats 2, Beats 3, Beats Reggae, or even Beats Death Metal—without having to renegotiate. Beats 1 is Apple's radio-station-format show that is live around the world for 12 hours per day, and then repeated for the other 12 hours. It has been highly praised, and may well be the most-liked feature of Apple Music, which was rolled out in late June. Even the record labels are pleased, according to The Verge's sources.
