At long last, The Beatles music is going to be available to stream on many of the most popular music streaming services from tomorrow, December 24th. Whether you prefer to use Spotify, Google Play, Apple Music, Rhapsody or one of many others, you’ll be able to sing along to the Fab Four’s most popular tunes anywhere you like, without having to pay to download individual songs or albums …

The Beatles music streaming will go live at 00:01 local time, wherever you are in the world, meaning those in New Zealand and Australia will be among the first in developed countries to listen to John, Paul, Ringo and George play. Once live in your country, you’ll be able to listen to The Beatles on the following streaming services:

  • Spotify
  • Google Play
  • Apple Music
  • Microsoft Groove
  • Tidal
  • Slacker Radio
  • Deezer
  • Amazon Prime Music
  • Rhapsody

This marks the first time we’ve ever been able to stream The Beatles (legally), and in the same stroke, means that Apple/iTunes no longer has the exclusivity on digital versions of the famous band’s tunes. After 5 years of only being available digitally through iTunes, we’ll now have the option to get it elsewhere. Whether you want to sing a long with ‘Hey Jude’, ‘Help!’, ‘Eleanor Rigby’ or any of the other world-famous tunes, you don’t have long to wait until you can do it using your favorite streaming app.
