According to Showbiz, the subject of the meeting, which was held GRAMMY weekend, was “how they could turn Aspiro — now Tidal – into a streaming music and video service akin to the old United Artists pictures, in which artists would actually profit from their art and put out quality material.”

In a matter of hours, TIDAL will officially launch in a lot of countries, including the United States.

Two paid subscription options are available: $19.99 a month for high-fidelity audio, and $9.99 for standard quality audio. Additionally, TIDAL can be streamed on the web and downloaded on iOS and Android devices.
