What is on Apple Music TV Channel?
On its first day (October 19), the service ran through a countdown of the top 100 most-streamed songs on Apple Music as a kickoff event. Apple Music TV will be available to U.S. residents first. But, it’s only on the Apple Music app and TV app. Also, you can go to it through this link AppleMusicTV by using the browse tab in the Apple Music and Apple TV app.
On Thursday (October 22), the channel will celebrate the upcoming release of Bruce Springsteen’s “Letter to You” album. Followed by an exclusive interview with Zane Lowe, music-video blocks, and a special live stream fan event.

Furthermore, Apple said there will be a connection between the new TV channel and Apple Music 1, which is a radio station formerly called “Beast 1”.
Apple Music 1 includes many original content since its official launch in 2015. That includes concert films, interviews and many more. Now, you can have access to all of that content on the Apple Music TV.

Maybe it can bring back the good memory of MTV’s heyday. So, if you are a big fan of music, just take a look at this channel and see how it goes.
