Plex, a popular media center app, has teamed up with music streaming service Tidal to offer its Plex Pass subscriptions access to the over 60 million tracks and 244,000 music videos in Tidal’s library. It’s now offering several competitively priced deals which combine a subscription to Tidal with a Plex Pass. For those who are unaware, Plex Pass is the company’s own subscription service which offers features like recording from live TV and other advanced controls.
Plex Pass subscribers will now be able to get Tidal as an add-on to their service for $8.99 per month. That’s $1 cheaper than subscribing to the music streaming service outright for $9.99 per month.
This deeply integrated partnership will bring recommended artists on the artist page even from ones that aren’t in the users’ library. It will also show missing albums of the artists whose music users already have in Flex.
Plex added an artist radio feature recently which lets users build playlists of trackers from their library that revolve around a musical theme for a particular artist. This partnership extends to the feature as well since subscribers will be able to mix in tracks from Tidal as well. There’s a universal search and playlists feature which will surface combined results from the Plex library and Tidal.
