High quality streaming audio is what most people’s wildest dreams are made of. Well, those dreams might just come true with Tidal, a brand new music streaming service launched in the U.S and U.K from Scandinavian company Aspiro.
The main difference between Tidal and its competition such as Spotify and Beats Music is the format and audio quality. Tidal has retained more than 25 million audio tracks and around 75,000 music videos in FLAC and ALAC formats that deliver a much better sound quality as compared to loosely compressed formats such as MP3 and AAC. The price, you ask? This service is advertising free and can be yours for $19.99/£19.99 per month on i0S, Android, web browsers and home music network players.
Tidal is a modified version of Scandinavian music streaming service WiMP HiFi, also introudced by Aspiro Music. Currently having over half a million WiMP subscribers and over 15,000 WiMP HiFi subscribers, Aspiro hopes to increase its market to millions of potential new customers all vying for good quality music.
