Tidal, the music streaming site owned by musician Jay Z, is following Apple’s footsteps to provide lower pricing for family plans. In an attempt to compete with the recently launched Apple Music, Tidal will be following Apple’s footsteps by offering lower family plan pricing for monthly subscriptions. This is great news for people who often download apple music to their music library, but now family plans on Tidal will be lower priced compared to Apple’s family plan, which starts at $14.99 a month.
Subscriptions are usually not the cheapest way to go for anyone, including families. The family subscription service for Tidal will be offered a 50% discount when subscribers add up to four additional users to the same account. The original subscriber of the premium package, for example, would pay the standard $10 for the monthly subscription, while each additional user would only pay $5. Both the Premium and HiFi options — which are $10 and $20 per month, will be cut in half, respectively. It’s a great way to save money and also keep the family and friends within reach. Although Apple Music remains the better bargain, Tidal is brainstorming on another way to get ahead such as introducing student pricing. Tidal’s premium plan starts at $9.99 a month and their HiFi plan will be offered at $19.99 a month. The family plan only covers those two options and the pricing for students will be under a different amount.
