Plex adds TIDAL music service to Plex Pass

The client-server media player system Plex announced Thursday a new partnership with the music service TIDAL to bring 60 million songs to Plex Pass subscribers.

This deal brings Plex Pass subscribers 30-day free access to high-quality music tracks, 244,000+ videos, and unique editorial content. After that, subscribers can add Tidal for $9.99 per month USD ($8.99 for Plex Pass subscribers).

At launch, TIDAL’s entire music catalog will be available on Plex. Other features will include:

  • Artist Recommendations: On the artist page, Plex will recommend other artists you might like that aren’t in your library.
  • Filling in Missing Albums: Plex will show you any missing albums from artists in your library.
  • Augmented Artist Radio: Enhances the Plex artist radio feature, which generates a mix from a specific artist, to include tracks from TIDAL.
  • New Releases: New album release recommendations for artists in your library.
  • Universal Playlists: Mix and match from your own library, shared libraries, and TIDAL.
  • Universal Search: Hear about a new band? Our apps now return TIDAL results alongside matches from your library, for maximum convenience.
  • Discovery Radio: Helps you discover new gems, from artists that are not in your library, based on the bands that are.
  • Music Videos: Users will be able to enjoy TIDAL’s incredible 244,000+ music video collection across all of the Plex mobile and TV apps.
