Apple’s desire to get into the video entertainment game is pretty well-known and was made more clear last year when they bought the rights to the Carpool Karaoke TV series. The series was expected to debut on Apple Music earlier this year, but was apparently delayed, but not anymore.
For those who have enjoyed the Carpool Karaoke TV series, you’ll be pleased to learn that the show’s first episode is now available for streaming via Apple Music. Of course this entails that you have an Apple Music subscription, something that we imagine Apple is hoping and pushing for by offering more than just music through the service.
The first episode will feature James Corden as the host and will star Will Smith as the show’s first guest. While the original Carpool Karaoke segment on “The Late Late Show With James Corden” typically featured Corden as the host, from what we can tell from the series’ trailer, the show on Apple Music is expected to rotate hosts depending on the episode, which should make for a pretty interesting watch.
Whether or not this will help boost Apple Music subscriptions remains to be seen, but if you’re an Apple Music subscriber, you can go ahead and check it out now.
