SINGAPORE - Singtel Music customers can now stream music on Tidal, after the music and entertainment platform was added to its line-up of data-free music streaming services.

Tidal Premium, which streams music at 320kbps, is available monthly for S$7.90 on a 12-month contract, or S$9.90 without contract, while Tidal HIFI, which streams at 1411kbps, costs S$15.90 on a 12-month contract, or S$19.90 without contract.

Tidal offers exclusive albums such as Beyoncé's Lemonade and Rihanna's Anti, and live streamed concerts from Bon Jovi, Keith Urban and Alicia Keys.

It also offers about 140,000 music videos and other entertainment content, such as Nick Jonas' Last Year Was Complicated documentary series and Rick Ross' album annotations.

Tidal, which is owned by music stars like Jay Z, Beyonce and Kanye West, has been available in Singapore as an app since February 2015, according to tech site Techgoondu. It promises high fidelity, lossless audio quality and exclusive content from top artistes.

 
 

Singtel Music was launched earlier this year, as the first in Singapore to offer data-free music streaming. Other streaming services offered by the service include Spotify, KKBOX, AMPed and Saavn.

Customers can subscribe to Singtel Music via www.singtel.com/singtelmusic.

Ms Diana Chen, vice president of mobile marketing, consumer Singapore, Singtel, said: "With the addition of Saavn in October and Tidal now, Singtel Music customers have even more choices for their listening pleasure. We're not stopping here and will continue adding quality music content to offer the best music streaming experience at great prices, without the data charges."
