Tidal announces Family Plan pricing

Tidal has announced that subscribers to either its Premium (up to 320kbps, £9.99/month) or HiFi (CD-quality 16-bit/44.1kHz, £19.99/month) streaming tiers can now get a 50 per cent discount on additional accounts registered under one primary paying user account.

This primary paying account can add up to four additional accounts under their plan, with each account getting to keep its own login details and playlists.

Each account can benefit from unlimited online streaming and can also register up to three devices for offline use.

Tidal is offering the new Family Plan pricing option to all markets.

Spotify introduced a similar feature in October 2014 and the recently released Apple Music offers a family option, which caters for up to six users and costs £14.99/month, but neither of these offer CD-quality lossless streaming.

Max is a staff writer for What Hi-Fi?'s sister site, TechRadar, in Australia. But being the wonderful English guy he is, he helps out with content across a number of Future sites, including What Hi-Fi?. It wouldn't be his first exposure to the world of all things hi-fi and home cinema, as his first role in technology journalism was with What Hi-Fi? in the UK. Clearly he pined to return after making the move to Australia and the team have welcomed him back with arms wide open.
