Apple Music to launch more Beats radio stations?

Apple Music's Beats 1 radio station may only have launched last month, but now the corporation are looking to expand the service with a whole lineup of specialist Beats stations.

Led by Zane Lowe, Beats 1 mostly plays "credible" music from hip-hop and rock artists, in a similar vein to what Lowe was used to play at Radio 1.

Fans of pop, classics, dance and other genres have mostly been left out, but that may not be for long, with the news that Apple Music have the option to launch another 5 radio stations. 

According to The Verge, as part of the deal it struck with the major labels for Apple Music Radio, Apple has licenses to create Beats 2 - 6, any time it likes. 

Beats 1 has mostly proved a hit with music fans using iOS and itwill soon be available via Android.
