Plex has announced that it has partnered with the music streaming service TIDAL. With the partnership, Plex users will have access to more than 59 million HQ music tracks, 250,000 music videos and “unique editorial content”. For $9.99, subscribers will get TIDAL Premium from within Plex, and for $19.99, users will get TIDAL Hifi as well as Plex Pass.
Keith Valory, CEO of Plex, commented on the deal saying:
“An incredible music and media experience is something that matters to both TIDAL and Plex users, and the addition of TIDAL’s music streaming service within Plex makes it the only solution that organizes and curates all major media types in one place. It’s another step closer to making all the media that matters to you accessible from one app, on any device, anytime.”
Meanwhile, Lior Tibon, COO of TIDAL, said:
“Plex’s focus on high-quality content aligns perfectly with the unique music and content experience that TIDAL fans love. Partnering with Plex is part of our continued strategy of integrating TIDAL seamlessly into subscribers lives with a one-stop shop like Plex.”
If you don’t use Plex or TIDAL and a bit apprehensive to test out the services now might be a good time to jump in. If you head on over to the TIDAL on Plex page, there’s an option to start a 30-day free trial, this will give you enough time to decide whether you’d like to buy the monthly subscription.
Plex has been busy over the last several months adding new features such as Plex News, Plex Web Shows, and Plex Podcasts, giving users a larger variety of third-party content for free. To learn more about today’s announcement head on over to the TIDAL on Plex page.
