It's Official! The Beatles Will Hit All Streaming Services at Midnight Tonight

The rumors and news from inside sources were true. The Beatles will be available on most streaming services as of midnight tonight.

All of the remastered Beatles albums will be made available on Apple Music, Deezer, Google Play, Microsoft Groove, Napster / Rhapsody, Amazon Prime Music, Slacker Radio, Spotify and Tidal.

The Fab Four were one of the final hold outs to the streaming revolution although their closest rival on the list of biggest selling artists in the U.S., Garth Brooks, is still among the missing. Also not available or very limited are current top artists Taylor Swift and Adele.

Beyond just a few, though, just about any album that is currently in print can be heard on the various services.
