It looks like it's time to subscribe to Beats 1, because Apple has announced that ad-supported stations will be disappearing from iTunes radio at the end of the month. Fans of the stations will have to purchase an Apple Music subscription, for as of January 29 and onward, the only way for iTunes users to carry on using these algorithmically-generated stations like 'Chill,' and Dance,' will be on Apple's Beats 1.

An Apple representative told Buzzfeed: "We are making Beats 1 the premier free broadcast from Apple and phasing out the ad-supported stations at the end of January. Additionally, with an Apple Music membership, listeners can access dozens of radio stations curated by our team of music experts, covering a range of genres, commercial-free with unlimited skips. The free three-month trial of Apple Music includes radio."
