Streaming has revolutionized the way we listen to music, but with so many millions of songs at our fingertips it can be easy to forget that often the music is beamed into our ears at a lower quality than the artist intended. So then, if you're after a streaming service that offers audio of the very highest quality, then Tidal is the place to look. With over 80 million tracks available to listen to in true HiFi, every audiophile bone in your body will be satisfied - and with three months of Tidal HiFi for just $1/£1, or Tidal HiFi plus for only $2/£2 (opens in new tab), your wallet will be feeling pretty good, too.
Streaming service Tidal was launched in 2014 and stepped into view properly when Jay-Z bought it a year later, promising more content and better rates paid to musicians who support the site.
This promotional campaign expires on January 2. After your three discounted months is up, Tidal HiFi will only cost you $9.99 a month and HiFi Plus will cost $19.99 a month. With certain current world events causing tours to be postponed or just written off altogether - now's a good time to support a streaming service which pays artists properly.
