Tidal are reducing their subscription cost – here’s what we know so far

Currently, Tidal have two music subscription plans. However, they plan to combine them into one, at just $10.99 per month. Great considering it includes high-res and Dolby Atmos tracks.

Tidal, a music streaming service, is making big changes to its subscription plans. They used to offer two separate plans: HiFi and HiFi Plus, with HiFi Plus being the more expensive option. But starting April 10th in the US, they’re merging these plans into one, simply called “Tidal.” And guess what? It’ll only cost $10.99 per month, the same as the cheaper HiFi plan.

This new Tidal subscription will still give you all the good stuff like high-quality music and cool features like Dolby Atmos mixes, which used to be exclusive to the pricier HiFi Plus plan. So, if you were already using HiFi Plus, you’ll actually save some money now. But there are a couple of things to keep in mind. Everything comes with a catch, right?

If you’ve been using Tidal’s DJ integration feature in the past 90 days, you’ll be charged an extra $9 per month. That is, unless you remove the feature from your subscription. If you forget, you’ll still end up paying the old price of $19.99. Also, Tidal used to offer discounts for students, first responders, and military members. Well, not any more.

Goodbye, Tidal Free…

They’re getting rid of those discounts and promotional prices starting June 10th. Tidal Free, the free version of the service, will also be no more after April 10th. If you want to keep using Tidal, you’ll have to pay for it. So, while they are reducing the cost of their ultimate subscription, it seems every other user is paying the difference…

Other music streaming services like Apple Music and Amazon Music Unlimited already offer high-quality music as part of their regular subscriptions. Now Tidal is following suit by including its high-quality music in its standard subscription without charging extra. Meanwhile, Spotify, another popular streaming service, still doesn’t offer high-quality streaming.

This is surprising considering they promised it three years ago. Tidal’s move might be a way to stay ahead of Spotify, who are rumoured to be planning their own high-quality streaming service. It’s all about staying competitive in the streaming music world. Tidal’s changes are aimed at keeping up with the competition and staying relevant.
