December 24, 2015 Studio Universal Music has published a directory of the 13 official albums of the Beatles in nine popular streaming services. Russian music services Yandex.Music and Zvooq wasn’t among them.

At the end of 2015 numbered albums of the ensemble first appeared in nine online services: Apple Music, Google Play Music, Deezer, Tidal, Spotify, Amazon Prime Music, Napster/Rhapsody, Microsoft Groove and Slacker Radio. For each service The Beatles are quite significant. Suffice it to say that in the same directory Deezer ensemble was given the number “1”: www.deezer.com/artist/1
