As 2015 is wrapping up and 2016 is set to begin, Microsoft continues to push new deals across all of its various venues. Up next is the Windows Store, which has a number of deals going on as part of Microsoft’s Countdown to 2016.
The deals are a mix of special music and movie offers, along with some interesting apps and games. Here’s a quick list.

The Beatles

Microsoft joins a number of streaming music providers in offering The Beatles tracks for the first time. If you have a Groove Music Pass, you’re all set to stream a whopping 17 Beatles albums. But if you’re more inclined to purchase tracks than rent them, The Windows Store also offers albums at 30% off the regular price. Head over to the Windows Store app to check out all of The Beatles offers.
