(Pocket-lint) – Tidal has extended its service by adding two new levels to its subscription plans. This includes a completely free level for the first time.
Launched exclusively in the United States for now, the new Tidal Free plan is ad-supported and limited to 160 kbps recordings. However, it can access the entire catalog of over 80 million songs for free.
The previous Tidal HiFi subscription plan was split into two. They are both available wherever Tidal operates, with the original plan now called HiFi Plus.
It retains its price of $ 19.99 / £ 19.99 per month and offers up to Main Quality Authenticated Music (MQA), Dolby Atmos and Sony 360 Reality Audio tracks. These are recorded at up to 9,216 kbps.
Another benefit has also been added to the premium package: artists will receive a larger share of your subscription fees. Up to 10% of your monthly expenses will go to the artists you broadcast the most.
The standard Tidal HiFi plan has been repositioned to be an intermediate option. Priced at $ 9.99 / £ 9.99, it offers tracks up to “Hi-Fi quality” – 1411 kbps.
However, you do not have access to Dolby Atmos music or Sony 360 Reality Audio.
