Bundling the Cost

The Plex and Tidal Premium bundle is priced at $9.99 per month, but current Plex Pass subscribers can get it for $8.99. Plex Pass alone is normally $3.33 per month on an annual subscription, while Tidal’s Premium service costs $9.99 per month.

Customers will also have the option of bundling TIDAL HIFI—the company’s high-quality streaming service. TIDAL HIFI is regularly priced at $19.99 a month, but Plex Pass subscribers can bundle it for $18.99 a month. As AppleInsider noted, this means that in this bundle the Plex Pass is effectively free.

A One-Stop Shop

Plex’s tie-in with TIDAL’s music library has launched on its mobile and web platforms. This will expand in the future. It is all part of the media-streaming app’s aim of becoming a one-stop shop for everything.

In a statement, the firm’s CEO Keith Valory said: “An incredible music and media experience is something that matters to both TIDAL and Plex users, and the addition of TIDAL’s music streaming service within Plex makes it the only solution that organizes and curates all major media types in one place.”

“It’s another step closer to making all the media that matters to you accessible from one app, on any device, anytime” he added.

New iOS Player

Plex has also launched a new player on iOS as part of the rollout. The firm said the player offers high-quality, gapless audio playback, intelligent fading, soft pauses, silence compression and voice boost. In addition, it has introduced Magic Artist Shuffle. This is shuffle feature that takes into account a users listening history and track ratings, amongst other things.

Artists concerned by the amount of income they were getting from streaming services launched TIDAL in 2015. It lists Jay Z, Beyoncé, Calvin Harris Rihanna and Usher as some of the artist-owners involved in the company.

  • Great news for the Tidal and Plex integration. Before that, to use Tidal music on Plex, I use the DRmare Tidal Song Converter to help me. First I need to use this tool to convert Tidal music to Plex supported audio formats. Then I need to move Tidal music to Plex for using.
