Tidal reaches 3 million subscribers

Wednesday 30 March 2016 | 10:19 CET | News
The music streaming service Tidal has reached 3 million paying subscribers. Around 45 percent of customers use the most expensive plan, offering ad-free listening with tracks in lossless FLAC/ALAC sound quality. This costs USD 19.99 per month, while a standard subscription is USD 9.99. Tidal offers access to around 40 million tracks, 130,000 music videos, live streams and a range of exclusive content. First launched by the Swedish company Aspiro, Tidal was acquired by a company backed by rapper Jay-Z in 2015 and relaunched last year in more markets.
