Streaming Beatles

The Beatles are about to hit the streaming services this winter, a report in Billboard suggests.
Billboard reported today that The Beatles are set to bring a special Christmas gift to those who prefer to have their music delivered through streaming services. This according to Billboard sources with knowledge of the negotiations. There are conflicting reports on the timing of the Fab Four's arrival to streaming platforms, but Billboard says there's a strong indication that streaming fans will be able to hear The Beatles on Thursday, Dec. 24 - Christmas Evening.
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?

Not all about new music. I've found out many old clássic álbuns, like Bob Dylan's, 50's Rock's, Elvis's etc..
And all the Beatles solo álbuns are there too.

Agree with Matheus. Spotify is a great place to discover many different genres of music: jazz, classical, R&B, soul.

I still would rather physically own the music I choose to listen to on vinyl or CD rather than listening to it on a bloody phone.
