Tidal may be less well known than Spotify, Apple Music and perhaps even Amazon Music Unlimited in the UK, but it is a competitor and part-owned by hip-hop icon Jay-Z.

Originally launched in 2014 by Norwegian company Aspiro, it’s now part of a packed music streaming market, so what does it have to offer?

Reportedly Tidal offers over 60 million tracks to users, on par with other services, while pricing also give equal footing at £9.99 a month.

Where Tidal differentiates itself specifically is with its “expert curation” and high-quality audio options.

Tidal offers ‘Master’ quality audio to its ‘HiFi’ subscribers

Streamed music is compressed to balance smooth performance with sound quality, and while all services offer good quality audio Tidal claims superiority.

This is because Tidal offers a separate ‘Hifi’ membership level, which provides thousands of tracks at ‘master’ quality. Master is superior to the CD quality streams it uses as standard (alongside the likes of Spotify), and could prove tempting for audiophiles looking to stay with the service.

While the new offer doesn’t appear to include this Master streaming quality, some reviewers have reported that even Tidal’s standard streaming sounds better than others services.

In 2019 What Hi-Fi reported, “Tidal streams offered a more spacious soundstage and sounded that little bit more engaging.”

Audio quality aside, what you also get in the 90-day free trial is Tidal’s expertly curated playlists, put together by music editors and artists themselves.

it’s a nice touch for music fans. You can create your own playlists too, and like other streaming services make use of apps for either Android or iOS devices as you prefer.

But with a couple of stand out differences, and a few similarities, the best way to truly get to know the service and whether you like it is just to try it.

While it’s not clear how long the offer is available for you to do so, we do know that but it is only valid for new accounts – which might be perfect if you’re looking to try it for the first time.
