It's been a long time coming, but The Beatles music catalogue is finally arriving on streaming services. As of Christmas Eve (December 24) 12:01 AM local time, you'll be able to listen to the catalogue (including "essential" collections like Past Masters) via Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, Google Play, Microsoft Groove, Amazon Prime, Rhapsody, Slacker, and Tidal. Even better: it will be available globally.

The Beatles split in 1970 but have remained an enduring force ever since.

They arrived on iTunes in 2010. Media research firm Midia believes coming to streaming services has taken this long for the band because they didn't want to hurt the sales of reissues and retrospectives, and that they've been waiting for the right time to get the best deal.
