Jay-Z’s TIDAL Music Streaming Service Now on SONOS Michael Kwan March 31, 2015 News, Press Release You’ve got a lot of options when it comes to online music streaming services and several of these are already available within the SONOS ecosystem. There’s SoundCloud and Google Play Music, for example. Now you can add another name to that list: TIDAL, the hi-fi music streaming experience owned by Jay-Z. You might remember that Jay-Z bought TIDAL from a Scandinavian company called Aspiro not that long ago and now he’s even got his fellow musicians to promote it. You may have seen some tweets from the likes of Arcade Fire, Kanye West, Madonna and Deadmau5 yesterday featuring the hashtag #TIDALFORALL. One major difference between TIDAL and Spotify is that the former doesn’t have a free tier of service. It’s paid only. But once you do sign up for that $19.99/month subscription, you’ll have the ability to stream some 25 million music tracks with full lossless sound quality through your SONOS speakers anywhere in the home. And that’s a good partnership, given that both companies are pushing the hi-fi audio agenda. Find more details in the full press release below.
