(REUTERS) - The Beatles will see its songs feature across streaming music services starting tomorrow on Christmas Eve, Re/code reported, citing sources familiar with the plans.

Streaming music services including Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play and Amazon Prime Music, are among the many others set to stream the band's songs, the tech website reported.

According to Re/code, Pandora Media Inc has the music band's songs on its online radio service, but with various restrictions.

The Re/code report follows a source-based one from Billboard a week ago which said The Beatles were coming to a streaming service on Christmas Eve, but did not specify which one.

The legendary group has been a persistent holdout from streaming.

Unlike artists such as Adele, Coldplay and Taylor Swift, who decided to not release some of their singles to the free versions of music streaming services, The Beatles' catalogue will be available for free to its users, Re/code said.
