    NGL Youtube Music packaged in with Youtube Premium is terrific value for money.

    Tidal is good is you're an audiophile, not so critical for 80% of users.

      They're an annoying company because they stopped a region workaround? What an ass thing to be annoyed at a company for

        Not wrong. I got a few good months out of different country / VPN exploits with Tidal, but completely understand why they eventually terminated it haha.

        Well the Tidal pricing is ridiculous locally.

        I pay for for other services locally because its fair enough and not worth the hassle.

      Only annoying if you're currently living in Turkey

      You can go live in Turkey if ya want, ya Turkey

    Tidal is also useful for DJs who use Serato because it integrates with the software (very niche group i know)

    • But they're now charging special pricing for that feature! What a pain.

      • yes i only realised after my comment. it's outrageous

    $3.33/m per person for the top tier sub. Theres literally no competion to Tidal.

      I need more friends šŸ˜”

        there's a thread elsewhere in Ozbargains Classifieds for those who want to share a Family subscription (total of 6 accounts available per 'family' group)

  • How do they do the student tier? Do you just need a student identification?

  • Sweet! Will try to get that student membership working

    • +1

      Let me know how you got it. I'm interested, too.

      • +1

        Worked for me, however I am actually a student with a student email ect :)

    Might be the only company to be reducing their subscription prices šŸ¤£

  • Family account now cheaper than Spotify.. even more appealing

  • No mention of MQA? Still there innit?

    • +1

      I think TIDAL is replacing MQA with high resolution lossless FLAC format.

    • +1

      some MQA titles still, but most of the MQA content has been replaced by hi-res Flac

  • Hmmm tempted to switch to the Student Tidal plan but Student Apple Music also nets me AppleTV+ sub for free for $6.99 total. Apple Music also has lossless so sound quality wise no difference with Tidal. Might just stick with Apple Music for now for that reason otherwise would definitely switch

  • take care with tidal guys - cancelled a free subscription years back then discovered sometime later that they had continued to charge me monthly. They claimed I hadn't cancelled correctly - suggest you take a screenshot of your cancellation although that might still not get your money back. IMHO not to be trusted…. but then I guess who is these days.

    I made a new account witih my other Gmail and there was an offer to pay $2 to get a 60 day free trial instead of a $0 30 day free trial, might just be with the Individual Plan as that is what I chose, but might work with Family and Student.

    Will test out and figure out if I want to grow a new 'Family' for it :)

  • Slightly cheaper for individual if VPN to .my

    • Can you add more info, please? What do you mean .my? Thanks.

      • +1

        I meant signing up to Tidal Malaysia via VPN. About AUD 5.50 a month for Individual. May be lower next month.

        • are you able to confirm the price for family?

  • They had my cash at $4pm via VPN, but they got greedy and closed off the geo-blocking workaround. Well within their rights to do so of course, but now that they've lost thousands of subscribers paying that $4 (who are now paying NOTHING and have moved elsewhere), it's also within the rights of customers to go elsewhere.

    Bye bye Tidal!

    • Bye bye Tidal!

      Hello Spotify?

      • Too expensive.

        YouTube Premium throws in Music for free. It's not as good, but free is free.
        Good enough for what I use it for.

  • Iā€™m getting $16.99 and $26.99 for individual and family plan pricing when I go into the app.

    • My guess is that it's because either Apple or Google are adding a cost to it. Likely cheaper to go via the website directly and logging in through the app

  • If you have Plex pass you can subscribe through Plex for $11.99/month
