No leh if you take a look at the Apple Music membership page for SG and US, you can see the difference in the features:

SG (you can see Beats 1 is missing):


US:


There was also an ST article that mentioned Beats 1 would not be available in Singapore.

I hope I'm wrong though.

I believe Beats 1 radio is only available to US for now. SG will only get the streaming service catalogue.

Technically the music cannot be transferred out. But with jailbreak you never know.

So much for "streaming in over 100 countries".

I can live without it, but it's just a bit sad that we're left out.

Uh that is not good. Zane Lowe is amazing in BBC Radio 1 and to miss the DJ in Beats 1 because we are in Singapore is disappointing. Chalk that up again to the damn censorship board because it is most likely them who stopped us from getting the full experience of any media channels in the world.

I'm disappointed too. And I agree that Apple is probably running into hurdles getting approval from the relevant authorities here.

Apple Music is up and running in the US! If you're using an iOS beta device, you will have to log out and log in to your US iTunes Store account in order to get a sneak peek.



When a song plays on any iTunes Radio channel, you get to see the price of purchasing the track alone via the iTunes Store.

Actually does Apple release iOS updates here in tandem with the US? Is there any chance it won't be at 11 PM (8 AM PST)?
