Plex now streams music from Tidal, offers bundled subscription for both
The partnership also includes a discount of $60 per year on Tidal and Plex Pass subscriptions.
Plex is teaming up with Tidal (opens in new tab), allowing subscribers to stream their Tidal tunes directly within the Plex app. The two companies are also making it easier to justify subscribing to their services, offering up a discount of $60 per year on a combo subscription to both.
Tidal's entire catalog of more than 60 million tracks is included here, and it'll live right along the songs currently in your local library. Tidal is integrated into Plex's playlist and search functions, allowing you to search across your own library and Tidals, and form playlists with tracks from both. Plex will also recommend new artists and albums from Tidal based on what's already in your library.
"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," said Keith Valory, CEO of Plex. "It's another step closer to making all the media that matters to you accessible from one app, on any device, anytime."
Lastly, Plex and Tidal are offering a combined subscription for both services, coming in at $19.99 per month (opens in new tab). If you want to give it a shot, the company is also offering up a 30-day free trial to whet your appetite.

Clearly, if you have lived in so many places and continents, you are fortunate and my comments don't apply to you. Nevertheless, I believe my points still stand and apply to many many places and people other than, and closer than, rural Kenya. I hope you know that. Access to fast, affordable, and consistent internet at home is a legitimate issue for many people. All that said, referring back to the original topic of hard drives, just let me say that it costs me quite a bit of money to stream. Money that not everyone has. That's the only point I was trying to make.
