Apple has activated ten holiday-themed radio stations on their iTunes Radio music streaming service. The station offers everything from seasonal classics, to rock-themed, to swing flavored holiday songs.

Apple Launches Holiday Music iTunes Radio Stations

The ten stations include: Children’s Christmas Holiday Sing-Along, Country Holiday, Classical Holiday, Holiday Classics, Holiday Hits, Latin Holiday, Rockin’ Holiday, Soulful Holiday, Swingin’ Holiday and The Sounds of Christmas.

While only a few of the stations show up in the Featured Stations section, all of the stations can be found via searching for “Holiday,” or “Christmas”. Stations can then be added to your “My Stations” list.

If you’re an iTunes Match subscriber, you’ll be able to do your holiday listening ad-free, however non-subscribers will be subjected to the occasional ad blurb between songs.

iTunes Radio is available only in the U.S. and Australia.
