    Well, he has been working to get exclusives with big artists. He is going to have it so only streaming service with his, Beyonce's, and Taylor Swift's music on it. We will try to get other musicians to sign exclusive deals too.

    It is expensive, I don't see how it is any better than Spotify.

    Unless Tidal involves them all drowning in a Tidal wave, I will not be subscribing.

    Because its "artist owned". they are putting the "Artistry" back in "human art". You didn't hear the good news?

    $10 a month for a compressed format (the standard on most digital outlets) and $20 for CD-quality streams.

    I used to do this but now that I'm older its a hassle. I was going to download one episode of the new vikings season now to transfer it etc, I outgrew that.
    $3 per episode on vudu is easy and highest quality. For music I am not picky, spotify works or I buy an album here and there . there is one thing I download.....and that's to avoid commercials and listen on my time......shhh

    These money grabbers could not even get a nice comment on dailymail. That pussay from coldplay etc. Its the usual turds thinking they be business men. lets hope it has the same level of success as planet hollywood. They are putting the Ahole into artistry. Is artistry even a word. Geez.

    hey, that lobster crawled out of the store on its own. (re jameis)

    i just think jayz is a smart business guy with a record(no pun) of knowing his market very well.


    it could fail, but i wouldnt write it off so easily

    I think this is a case where he is going to take a bath, because there are services out there that do the exact same thing for free or close to free.

    But if it pushes him closer to being broke, I'm all for it, because I'm sick of hearing what a fucking genius he is.

    I would download it for free from YouTube if any of it was worth downloading. But it's not ... so I don't. That's what these clowns are trying to do: charge us for music that isn't worth taking for free.
