Beatles are now on Spotify, Apple Music & eCo

Beatles

Fans of The Beatles can enjoy an early Christmas present today as their songs become available on music streaming services for the first time. The group’s management company reached a deal with Spotify, Apple Music and other providers in a coup for the streamers… All 13 of The Beatles’ studio albums were due to go live just after midnight on nine music services: Amazon Prime, Apple Music, Deezer, Google Play, Microsoft-owned Groove, Rhapsody, Slacker, Spotify and Tidal… Although criticised for their payments by artists, streaming services are lossmaking, with income from advertising and subscriptions unable to cover the cost of royalties, marketing and technology development. Unlike video streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime, music streaming companies do not own content rights and seek to offer a comprehensive catalogue.
