|The Beatles are about to hit the streaming services this winter, a report in Billboard suggests.|
It's unknown which specific services have secured the deal, though sources strongly suggest that most, if not all, will have access to the band's catalogue of studio albums next week. Representatives of Spotify and Rhapsody have returned requests for comments with a "no thanks", while Apple Music, Tidal, Deezer and Slacker have yet to reply to Billboard's request.
Music consumption from streaming services has begun to officially overtake downloads in revenue generation for the major labels, Billboard reports.
So how about a special welcome gift, like the full "The Beatles at the Hollywood Bowl" album as a streaming exclusive? Or maybe the Christmas flexis?
