    Apple TV gets a dedicated Beatles Channel
    The Beatles had their own Apple Record Label and now the Apple TV is bearing fruit with a dedicated Beatles channel.
    In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Fab Four’s first appearance on US television, on The Ed Sullivan Show, a special Beatles Channel has sprung up. For a limited time only, you can tune in and watch the entire 14 minute performance from Liverpool’s favourite sons and also listen to all the US albums which have become available on iTunes, also, for the first time.

    The deal marks a clear end to a dispute between Apple corp and Apple Records over ownership of the Apple brand. Although the dispute was actually settled in court in 2007, it took a further 3 years before any of The Beatles’ hits appeared on iTunes.

    Former CEO and co-founder, Steve Jobs was a celebrated fan of The Beatles, even once describing them as a model for Apple’s business.

    “My model for business is The Beatles: They were four guys that kept each other’s negative tendencies in check; they balanced each other. And the total was greater than the sum of the parts. Great things in business are never done by one person, they are done by a team of people.”

    Who's tuned in?
