A few people are saying about cancelling.

You can cancel now and your access will remain until the end of the trial period. I cancelled the minute I'd signed up, if you don't want to accidentally forget, just do the cancellation now.




Thank you for the tip.




I've used that same trick for YouTube Premium, CBS All Access and DC Universe.

In the case of DC Universe, we still had access for a few weeks after what the cutoff date was!


How did DC universe as app work out for you? It kept buffering non stop for me.I probably would've kept it,if it hadn't kept buffering every 30 seconds.

No! I've already been a faithful member of Tidal ever since Prince gave his seal of approval of them when he was alive!

No. I haven't listened to the album yet other than Sex Shooter, and am waiting for it to appear on Spotify. Haven't decided whether to go for the white vinyl yet, but I'll probably be getting a physical copy of one kind or another.

thanks for your responses. For what it's worth I love Tidal - the Prince compilations they do are excellent + a much nicer format / layout than others I have tried.

We watched Doom Patrol and Titans, and even a few of the shitty old Shazam episodes. No problems.

We had nothing but problems using the comic book viewer.

No wonder the DC app is having problems then. I don't understand how they have so much trouble when pirates can share the same files without these problems. They're not just competing with "free", they're competing with "free" and "works better". Just sayin'...

NO.

I preordered it from the estate.

I downloaded it illegally.

I’ll purchase the Target version with the bonus track June 21.

Yeah, I did, but just for the trial and I intended to cancel before it ends. I do feel a little bad about it in a way since I quite like the fact that they supposedly pay artists more per stream than other services (haven't looked at a direct comparison though), but my family already have a joint Spotify account so it's a bit redundant, and we're too committed to Spotify really in terms of playlists et al. for us to make the switch completely.

I actually did buy Originals via Tidal's download store shortly after starting the trial but to be honest I wish I hadn't, I got the MP3s but they're only 256kbps (would have expected 320kbps given how much they advertise that they stream music in premium quality, I know that's for their lossless stuff but still). For some stupid reason you're only allowed to download the album once before your download "expires", and Firefox glitched while downloading so Tidal registered some of the tracks as "downloaded" despite the fact that I was missing two tracks! I eventually managed to get those tracks after sending an angry email to their support staff, but I can't really recommend ever using their download store again, not a good experience.

It looks like it's only available on the US Target release and the Japanese version.

I registered, but when they asked for card details (for a "free" trial) I bailed. So I downloaded the album and am waiting for the vinyl release which I've already paid for via the official store.

Good question. Same thing I thought when 20Ten came out and I live in the U.S.

All I’m saying is I’m a pretty nice person who does read his orgnotes.

Tidal is offering 3 months free access to celebrate this release....

"Prince led the way, for artistic freedom, for ownership.

He's one of the bravest people I can think of in the industry.

He trusted us, not just me, but Tidal, to continue his fight," says Jay.

The billionaire Hip Hop mogul continued,

"Trying to help further that legacy through his music is an honor

we couldn't pass up as an organization dedicated to empowering artists.

This gives his true fans that peek behind the curtain."

Have to hand it to JayZ...

He is committed...
