The Beatles Go Streaming!


COSTA RICA EXTRA – After years of holding out, the Beatles are making their music available on free streaming music services just in time for Christmas.

According to, the music of the BIGGEST band ever is available FOR FREE on nine internet services including Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal, Google Play, and Amazon Prime.

“It was a long complex negotiation, but we got to the top of the mountain, and, increasingly, the way the world listens to music will now include the way the world listens to and loves the music, ” said Manhattan Venture Partners Max Wolffbelieves the addition will help bring in older listeners to the streaming services.

It is a big win for streaming services.

  • Beatles For Sale
  • Help!
  • Rubber Soul
  • Revolver

According to Billboard, plans for the six month “exclusive” deal with one well-known streaming service were kicked around Apple Records in 2014 before “fizzling out”.The Beatles have traditionally been late to embrace new forms of music distribution.Although the Fab Four’s back catalogue was released on CD in 1987, a remastered version did not appear until some 22 years later.
