Fab Four's music to be streamed by Christmas?
Yes, you can build a Beatle radio station on Pandora, but that is due to the unusual way that licenses are handled on the app. The streamer operates under a government statutory license, which allows you to hear a particular band no more than four times in three hours. So if you want to stream the Beatles on-demand, non-stop, you will have to wait until next week. That is when the licensing will supposedly be in place for all albums recorded by the quartet from Liverpool, to be heard over streaming music services.
Even though it has been 53-years since "Love Me Do" was first broadcast over British radio, Beatle music is still very much in demand. When the group's catalog hit iTunes in November 2010, it led to the sales of 450,000 albums and 2 million songs in a week. While it is unknown which streaming services will be offering the Moptops, Spotify and Rhapsody both refused to comment.
Considering there are things that tie Apple in with the Beatles including iTunes, Apple Records and the fact that they were Steve Jobs' favorite band, we'd be surprised if Apple Music wasn't one of the destinations for John, Paul, George and Ringo.
