I don’t usually link to rumors, but Peter Kafka’s report on the Beatles coming to Apple Music and other streaming services on Christmas Eve sounds like pretty much a done deal:
You can spend Christmas streaming the Beatles.
The world’s most famous band will finally be available on streaming music services, starting this Thursday, Christmas Eve. And they’ll be available very, very widely: Industry sources say that the Fab Four’s music will be on all of the obvious music services, including Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play and Tidal, as well as some you might not expect, including Amazon’s Prime Music.
Also relevant: Kafka says that you can now stream a big selection of Beatles songs on YouTube, “legally, for free”.
Seems like Thursday is going to be a day we’ll never forget.
