Even if you already pay for another music streaming service, TIDAL has a promotion going on right now that’s too good to ignore. From March 18 to April 30, the platform that Jay-Z built is letting new users explore their premium streaming content for the dangerously affordable price of $4 for four months. That’s right, lest our math is wrong (and it isn’t), that’s only a buck per month.

But if you already subscribe to another streaming platform, should you even bother? The answer is a resounding, “yes.” While Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play and the others all boast large libraries and the ability to share music, they don’t measure up to TIDAL in the quality and content departments.

For just $1 a month you can unlock access to more than 60 million tracks and 250,000 videos. You can listen to your favorite podcasts while you relax after work. Put in your earbuds and enjoy live streaming performances from the comfort of your own home. With Master-quality Audio and exclusive artist content, TIDAL brings you closer to your favorite artists for the ultimate music experience.

Upgrade to TIDAL HiFi at No Extra Cost

First and foremost, let’s talk quality. This insane promotion actually covers TIDAL HiFi, meaning you can get TIDAL’s most premium subscription level for the same amount as their normal subscription. With HiFi you have the ability to access Tidal’s deep library of master-quality songs and albums. That means your favorite tracks will sound like they’re straight off a deluxe, remastered album. And with more than 170,000 Master-audio Quality tracks to choose from, it will keep you busy for a while.

But what’s a “master” and why should you care? Let’s put it this way: the audio quality you get on Spotify or Apple Music is like picking the cheapest item on a menu at your favorite restaurant. Meanwhile, TIDAL’s Masters are like having your own personal chef cooking for you personally in the comfort of your own home. Whether you’re an audiophile or not, it’s hard to ignore the richer sound of a master-quality HiFi track.

But masters aren’t the only reason to consider TIDAL. Unlike Spotify and Apple Music, TIDAL offers an extensive trove of extra content that even the most casual listener can enjoy. You can listen to artist-curated playlists (ever wondered what The Weeknd is listening to at the moment?), live-stream artist performances, rewatch concert footage and even get exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from your favorite artists. Whether they’re hanging out backstage about to perform, or chatting away in exclusive interviews, TIDAL gives you up-close access to your favorite performers.

But for us, the best thing TIDAL has going for it is this: TIDAL is owned by artists. Whereas Spotify, Apple, Google and the rest were created by outside players, TIDAL is owned and operated by the very artists it promotes. This cuts out the middlemen, which is why TIDAL gives the highest monetary kickback to artists per stream.

From music videos and concert footage, to podcasts and curated playlists, it’s tough to beat TIDAL’s wide and varied offerings. And at 90% off during this promotion, it’s worth giving it a try, even if you’re a die-hard Spotify or Apple Music loyalist.
