Tidal is singing our song: Get 4 months of music streaming for just $4

You can save $76 on Tidal's HiFi plan, which means you can make a playlist of lossless music for your self-quarantine soundtrack.

You know you're intrigued by Tidal. But unlike Spotify , you can't really kick its tires very easily, since there's no free version of the service to log into. But still, it's tempting. Tidal wants to be the go-to music service for audiophiles, for example, with a lossless hi-fi audio stream if you subscribe to the higher-cost premium service. You also get access to exclusive music content, and first dibs on some concert tickets. Well, wonder from afar no longer. For a limited time, you can sign up for a four-month trial of either the Tidal Premium or HiFi plan for just $4.

That's a dollar a month, regardless of whether you want the premium $10 per month plan or the hi-fi plan that's usually $20 per month. Of course, this offer is only good for first-time subscribers.

For just a dollar a month, this deal is simply too good to pass up, especially if you want to do your own A/B testing between Spotify and Tidal. You may find that Tidal is missing a few tracks you can find on Spotify -- especially if you're into indie music -- and you might prefer the Spotify mobile app to Tidal.

This is the best price on Tidal we've seen since its 5-months-for-$5 deal that we told you about back in the fall. This one is the same dollar-per-month rate; it simply doesn't last quite as long. But virtually free Tidal HiFi until summer? Sign me up.
