For years and years, while the streaming wars have dominated consumer music conversations, a major count against streaming services was the fact that the Beatles catalog was unavailable on most of them. Their music wasn’t even on iTunes until 2010.

But times are a’changing. You can now listen to the Beatles for free, and the addition of their catalog is a major coup for streaming companies, especially as Taylor Swift and Adele continue to fight the tides by refusing to stream their latest albums on Spotify.
