    Can't seem to find any of the new Beatles streaming albums/stations on Slacker. Is this somehow absent from our Tesla subscription? Nothing like the references I see on the Slacker website.

    Slacker's catalog is pretty bad, but they do have "some" Beatles tunes. With the standard Slacker subscription that comes with a Tesla it's very hard to get to hear some artists. I guess their contracts are too expensive for Slacker to play them.

    Pretty sure Apple owns the Beatles catalog and charges quite a bit for it. It is one of the gaps that Slacker has.

    I get Beatles stations but I think you need Slacker Premium for albums.

    That is not true. Apple Records was founded by the Beatles. It is a separate company from Apple Inc... Apple Records - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    This post was started since the Beatles catalog was just made avail to streaming providers last week, and people are now looking for it in their Teslas...

    maybe it's something like the artist that was once called 'Prince' on Youtube
    there might be a couple of bad videos but not much

    I've between playing The Beatles on Slacker since Christmas Eve. Did a voice command "Play The Beatles," scroll past all the songs to Artists in the pop-up and there you go. Like all the Slacker "stations" you will get a variety of other artists.

    No I was looking for Beatle stations like this

    Slacker Radio | The Beatles now on Slacker

    Much more than the Beatles DNA. I realize we don't have the premium version but I thought we were better than the free basic service.

    We have it. I've been listening to the various Beatle stations. Just log in via the Slacker mobile app or web page with your Tesla credentials and find the Beatle station you want and select "Add to My Music". When you go to your car the station will be in your favorites like below.

    How/where do I find the Tesla login credentials? Didn't know we could use this on our phone. Guess Slacker doesn't care where you log in through.
