Even though The Beatles are one of the most well-known band in the world, they never really embrace digital distribution model with the exception of the deal for Apple iTunes back in 2010. Well, get ready then as fans will be able to listen to music by the Fab Four via streaming services starting from tonight.
As opposed to sticking exclusively to just one service, music from The Beatles will be made available in almost all major music streaming services out there. Such services include Spotify, Deezer, Apple Music, Tidal, Google Play, Microsoft Groove, Napster / Rhapsody, Amazon Prime Music, and Slacker Radio.
Not only that, all 13 remastered studio albums as well as four special collection albums will be made available through this services. Fan will be able to tune in these iconic releases by the band at 12:01 am which is less than 3 hours away for us in Malaysia.
It is long time coming for the band to jump into streaming service especially considering that revenues from music streaming has begin to overtake physical sales earlier this year. At the very least, there is now very little reason to find music from The Beatles through illegal means anymore since some of these streaming services are available for free.
