Jay-Z Gets Into Music Streaming With $56M Bid For Aspero, Owner Of WiMP And Tidal | TechCrunch

WiMP is available in a handful of European markets — Denmark, Germany, Norway, Poland and Sweden — while Tidal offers a “higher fidelity” service, which boasts a superior quality of sound than to the likes of Spotify, Rdio and Deezer’s services. Available in the UK and the U.S. since October 2014, Tidal is priced at $20 per month, which is around double the main competition.

I spoke about Tidal before and it seems inevitable that their high end music service would be sought after. Hopefully, Jay-Z will influence bringing the monthly subscription cost down so the service can gain momentum because there is no doubt the superior sound quality currently trumps Spotify and Beats etc.
