Do you get free music from T-Mobile through Tidal? According to reports, T-Mobile will soon be ending its free Tidal Music benefit for new and current subscribers.
The Mobile Report first reported this as it obtained internal T-Mobile documents that say the free music offer will no longer be offered to new subscribers on August 1st, 2023, and current subscribers will lose access on September 1st, 2023.
T-Mobile will reportedly start sending out notices via SMS to affected customers tomorrow, August 1st informing them that the free Tidal offer is ending.
The good news is Hulu and Netflix on Us offers will continue for qualifying customers it is just the Tidal offer that is ended.
The free Tidal offer came from its purchase of Sprint. At the time, Sprint owned a 33% stake in Tidal and offered it to its subscriber base of 45 million subscribers. After T-Mobile purchased Sprint, it quickly sold its stake in Tidal to Jaz-Z but continued to offer the service on select plans.
According to reports, T-Mobile will offer a “new benefit coming soon,” but at this time, we do not know what that is. T-Mobile documents for its staff say on August 2nd, 2023, they will start notifying affected customers about this new benefit that will be replacing the Tidal offer.
If you are not on a plan that is already eligible for Tidal, you will not be eligible for the new benefit.
Here is how T-Mobile describes its Tidal benefit:
Get TIDAL HiFi Plus on us. The ultimate home for music lovers, with over 90 million songs, 450,000+ videos, and access to cool features like lyrics, interactive credits, and the ability to view and share your top streamed artists with friends.
As always, with free offers like these, they regularly rotate and change. For now, we will have to wait and see what that new offer is.
Cord Cutters News reached out to T-Mobile for comment and will update this story if we hear back.
