Streaming service WIMP launches TIDAL in the US! – Aspiro Group, the company behind the WiMP Music streaming service in Europe, has launched a new service, Tidal, in the US and UK with a focus on high-fidelity audio, editorial curation and video content.
Tidal costs $19.99 a month and uses the ALAC and FLAC lossless format at 1,411 kbps, 44.1kHz/16-bit. That amounts to roughly four times the 320 kbps bitrate of most music streaming services, although Deezer launched its own high-quality service in the US last month.
Because Symphonic is integrated with WIMP, the catalogue will also be available via the TIDAL service in the US and UK which will be a great promotional outlet for our clients considering the high quality of which TIDAL represents. If you want more info on TIDAL, click here!
