Tidal HiFi Family Plan - 3 Months - £5.99

Posted 5th Aug
Just seen a promo for Tidal HiFi Family Plan (up to 6 users) 3 Month subscription for only £5.99 for the full 3 months!

Just bought Apple Music for the family last week myself, which has been good, but at £14.99 I could save almost £39 over the remaining 2 months taking this offer.

I've been interested in trying the premium service out so will defo give it a go at this price for sure.

Thanks OP
Good price for Tidal unfortunately I cannot hear the difference between it and Spotify on my equipment so i use Spotify instead
How do you get that deal? I cant see it anywhere?
I've just signed up.
Or... Pay £4.20 a month via VPN for Tidal HiFi Family.
I think tidal is pretty good but the occasional glitches and bugs make it unbearable.
Nowhere near as good an interface as Spotify IMO if you are like me and know vaguely what you want to listen to as the Spotify "endless playlist" is fantastic, can chug along by itself for a whole workday with minimal/little intervention.

My impression of Tidal was it was more for people who know exactly what artists/songs they want to listen to. Which is no surprise seeing as they seem more targeted at people who want to listen to a specific piece of music, rather than use it as background noise/radio replacement.

Like anything it could just be I wasn't as au faite with the interface.

If you do have better equipment the difference can be quite dramatic but equally many people's hearing isn't up to it anyway.

Pardon?
It's ok but the fact it doesn't work hands free on either Alexa or Google makes it a no from me.

I’ve tried Spotify with the higher quality audio settings and it doesn’t touch Tidal premium, which is almost reference quality and is lossless (although I understand they do pre-process the audio, probably just normalising, so not a direct rip/master?)
how long is this offer on for

Heat added
Spotify vs Tidal Premium is such a big difference. Just a shame it costs alot more and Tidals UI isn't the best. Cmon Spotify, add a Hi-Res option!
tried it, and comes up as You Are Not Eligible for this offer.
I've had a 6 months freebie before
I use Spotify but have tried Tidal. It must be just me but through my Pioneer High resolution music player Spotify actually sounds better and that’s why I have stayed with it.
Tidal is brilliant if you have the gear to take advantage of it, but there's no voice control. Makes it unusable in Android Auto when you're on the move.

Yeah it’s a new customer only deal - alternate email address could work?

Tidal are wise to that sort of thing.
You can take ABX listening tests to see if you can tell the difference between lossless (Tidal/FLAC) and lossy (Spotify/MP3) audio streams here: abx.digitalfeed.net/lis…tml

I ran some test on my desktop with ~£400 worth of headphones, amp and DAC*. Personally, I struggled to tell the difference between Tidal and Spotify formats (I got it right about 60% of the time). So I can't really justify the additional expense for Tidal and have stuck with Spotify Familiy (other family members also objected to Tidal UI).

Yep, that's the Catch 22, Tidal sounds excellent on my home setup but anywhere else Spotify's mp3 like quality is no worse and it integrates so much better with things. Then you get the kids sharing their Spotify playlists with friends so they don't want to change which makes it difficult to justify an extra sub just for the lounge even at Turkish prices.
Love the quality of Tidal Master with MQA and it makes Bob the #1 inventor nutjob, that nobody believed in, for supplying the way it streams in FLAC on HiFi, but there is such a varied range of unblock-able content with obscenities running through the lyrics on so many tracks now, that are almost impossible to strict filter out, that its spoiling the service, they once had

The new MQA Amazon Unlimited HIFi choice, will hopefully be more family friendly, as not a lot of point in subscribing to a family subscription with Tidal, if half the family cannot actually listen to the playlists!

Don't agree with that at all. The Tidal Radio service is easily employed, just go to any artist/album and click the radio button.

I've used both extensively now and the only thing I miss from Spotify is public playlists.

I still use my free Spotify account to follow such playlists then import them to Tidal using Soundiiz (examples would be 'Beatport top 100').

Using denon x4500 with monitor audio silver 200 speakers the difference is actually very apparent. Better range, dynamics and seperation, but is it worth £20/month? Probably not...Spotify sounds great, tidal sounds better! Same as denon x2500 with monitor audio silver 50's, just less bass response

The blessing is you now know don't need to spend so much on your kit next time

To be fair though, it does depend on the music, most recent, well produced music is very different. Older 'classics' very much less so unless they've been remastered well fairly recently.

It's ironic that CDs were initially criticised for being compressed given what we accept nowadays.
Does 6 members need to live in the same house?
Tidal is fantastic, listening to it in Hi-fi, even without the best sound equipment, you hear pauses that you just do not hear on other music streaming services.
How does HiFi Family plan work.

Presumably if the account holder has complete control over anything affecting billing?
Done the VPN and register in Turkey trick. Just paid 19.99 Turkish lira for the hifi plan which came to just under £3 compared to the UK £19.99 equivalent.
Used a different email address but the same PayPal account as previously used. Have also now cancelled the paypal future payment in 3 months in case I forget!
Hey Brad can you see if there is a fee showing if you want to add the family members?

You add any five people inclusive of the trial price?
