If you're looking for a bit of instant gratification this early December, then a discounted music streaming subscription is one purchase guaranteed to brighten up your day immediately – no stock issues or delivery delays possible!
Tidal is no stranger to a great deal, and once again the company threw up a Black Friday bargain for those looking to up their streaming game or hear for themselves what all the fuss is about MQA. And that excellent offer is still live (albeit presumably for a very limited time now that Cyber Monday is over).
New subscribers to Tidal can enjoy a three-month trial of Tidal's top tier – HiFi Plus – for just £2 / $2 / AU$2 (usually £20 / $20 / AU$24 per month). Or you can sign up to the newly enhanced 'HiFi' plan for only £1 / $1 / AU$1 ( usually (£10 / $10 / AU$12 per month).

Tidal HiFi Plus: 90 days for £2 / $2 / AU$2
We love Tidal so much, we gave the streaming subscription a What Hi-Fi? Award 2021 – and that was at over twice the price of this deal. As well as CD-quality streams, HiFi Plus gives users access to immersive sound formats (Dolby Atmos Music and Sony 360 Audio recordings) and Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) tracks (at up to 9216 kbps).
Tidal HiFi: 90 days for £1 / $1 / AU$1
The newly rebranded ‘Tidal HiFi’ tier is an ideal introduction to the world of high-quality streams and includes interruption-free access to over 80 million songs at up to 1411kbps as well as offline playback, curated playlists and features such as Tidal Connect.
Of course, once your trial is over, you can either cancel or choose to start paying the standard monthly charge, but further discounts are available for students and families, and in the US, for military and first responders.
This offer is only available for new Tidal customers so if you've been thinking of trying Tidal, now looks like a good time.
The company recently restructured its service to include lossless 16-bit 44.1kHz audio streams in its rebranded ‘Tidal HiFi’ tier. This option offers users interruption-free access to audio at up to 1411kbps (compared to 320kbps previously) as well as offline capabilities and access to features such as Tidal Connect.
Needless to say, we'd get stuck into the 'HiFi Plus' tier, which is Tidal's most premium offering. In addition to an intuitive interface and extensive catalogue, you get access to Tidal Masters – Tidal's collection of hi-res audio tracks (typically 24-bit/96kHz) immersive sound formats (Dolby Atmos Music and Sony 360 Audio recordings) and Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) tracks (at up to 9216kbps).
In our Tidal review, we noted: "Whether you’re listening to 320kbps, CD-quality or hi-res streams, Tidal sounds great compared to its rivals. There’s no doubt we’d wholeheartedly recommend signing up for Tidal HiFi if you can."
