Media software developer Plex has enabled users to stream Tidal through the app along with their existing collection of music, and the partnership also offers users a package deal that combines the two services together into a single plan that can save some customers money from buying them separately.
In the context of Plex and Tidal, Plex Pass subscribers can access streaming music service throughout 60 million tracks and 244,000 video catalogs from Plex apps. Basically, it is available from mobile apps and online, with expansion to other platforms that are expected to follow.
When a Tidal account is linked to Plex, the different Plex-based features will take into account both the Tidal directory and the user's own collection. Playlists from Plex Discovery and Artist Radio will use traces from both sources, with the music user being able to affect Tidal tracks as surfaces under the findings, and for Tidal tracks to fill out missing parts of the user's collection.
Depending on the customer, the partnership can save some users a pretty decent amount of money, through a selection of bundles. The Plex and Tidal Premium package costs $ 9.99 per month or $ 8.99 for existing Plex Pass users, while separate Plex Pass costs $ 3.33 per month on an annual basis and Tidal Premium service costs $ 9 , 99 per month.
Potentially greater savings are available to those who choose the Tidal HiFi and Plex Pass bundle, which provides loose sound quality for some of its music collection, for $ 19.99 for new users or $ 18.99 per month for existing Plex Pass subscribers. Tidal HiFi usually costs $ 19.99 per month, and makes Plex Pass efficiently in the pile.
The move will probably be useful for both services. While Tidal opens to a new audience with the temptation of an integrated music service, Plex takes a step further towards its goal of making its media center software a single access point for all user content.
Previous addition to the Plex service includes personal Plex News, live TV support, and in May, Plex Podcasts.
