Tidal & Sprint To Offer Customers Free 6-Month Trial And Help Provide Internet Access To 1 Million Students


(AllHipHop News) The business union between streaming platform Tidal and telecommunications giant Sprint is now presenting benefits for consumers and learners.

Starting on June 9, new and existing Sprint customers will be able to get six months of free Tidal HiFi service.

“We recognize that music streaming is one of the most important services for consumers,” states Sprint President/CEO Marcelo Claure. “More than two-thirds of mobile subscribers stream music an average of 45 minutes per day, making our partnership with Tidal a natural fit for Sprint and our commitment to offering innovative, affordable and worry-free service.”

He adds, “We’re providing our customers and anyone who signs up for Sprint a complimentary six-month trial of Tidal HiFi so they can experience all the unique and exclusive content Tidal has to offer.”

Members will gain access to Tidal-only programs such as Hip Hop Improv with Cipha Sounds, Mack Wilds’s AfterHours miniseries, and the upcoming 4:44 film project starring Mahershala Ali.

In addition, the platform allows users to stream 48 million music tracks, 175,000 videos, celebrity-curated playlists, and live concerts.

Tidal and Sprint are also supporting the Sprint Foundation’s 1Million Project.

The initiative is working to provide 1 million low-income American high school students with free mobile devices and high-speed wireless internet for up to four years as a way to help eliminate the “homework gap.”

To support the 1Million Project, Sprint will donate $2 (up to $1 million) from every new line activation with a device purchase or lease.

“Education is key to a bright future, and unfortunately not everyone has access to the tools and resources needed to succeed, including internet access and mobile devices,” says Tidal artist-owner, Nicki Minaj. “I’m so proud to work with Sprint and Tidal, who are prioritizing programs like the 1Million Project in order to ensure that a student’s zip code and family financial situation aren’t roadblocks to a successful future.”
