I'm pretty sure the publishing rights to much of the Beatles catalog are still a mess, as they have been for years.
That's a good part of the reason their albums took such a long time to appear on CD, such a long time to get digitally remastered, and such a long time to appear on any digital distribution channel -- and when that finally happened, it was still locked exclusively to iTunes through much of 2011.
I'm not sure where the exclusivity deal currently stands but the parties involved in releasing the catalog weren't terribly keen on digital distribution to begin with, so I wouldn't expect any kind of rapid movement to other digital channels. In this case, unfortunately, the fault lies very much with the artist... or those responsible for handling their music, anyway.

Marcoacuna - Thanks for that constructive feedback. Overfloater makes some relevant points. It's not our fault, we love The Beatles. You can read more about why some artists opt out here.

Spotify: Unfortunately there are some artists who have opted not to be a part of Spotify at this point in time. Some frequently requested artists that are not in Spotify include The Beatles, Pink Floyd, AC/DC and Led Zeppelin. We hope that they change their minds regarding streaming soon!
I have uninstalled Spotify from my PC. Thank you but spotify does NOT meet the minumun needs for usage.
for $9.99 you claim I will never have to buy music again.. It sounds like false advertizing..
Please review you ad, make sure everyone knows that you only steam a few bands and NOT all bands, I am very dissapointed.
