Tidal HiFi streams Dolby Atmos

Posted on: Friday 5th of June 2020

Dolby Laboratories and Tidal are making Dolby Atmos Music available through Dolby Atmos-enabled sound bars, TVs and AVR home theatre systems. Tidal HiFi users will need to connect their Dolby Atmos-enabled living room devices to a compatible streaming player running the most recently updated Tidal app. Compatible streaming devices include Apple TV 4K, Fire TV Stick 4K, Fire TV Cube, Fire TV Stick (2nd gen), Fire TV (3rd gen), and NVidia Shield TV or NVidia Shield TV Pro (2019 or newer models).

Subscribers to the TIDAL HiFi tier with compatible Android smartphones or tablets will have access to a growing library of music available in Dolby Atmos from Universal Music Group and Warner Music Group. Users can also get Dolby Atmos Music on Tidal HiFi through a compatible Dolby Atmos-enabled Android smartphone or tablet.  The current library includes songs from  artists such as The Weeknd, Blondie, Ariana Grande and more. TIDAL is working closely with its artist-owners, including JAY-Z, to mix their catalogs in Dolby Atmos – which are expected to become available in 2020.

“TIDAL members have come to expect the highest quality listening experience from our platform, and it is a priority for us to stay at the forefront of innovation,” said Lior Tibon, Chief Operating Officer, TIDAL. “Dolby Atmos will give music fans the ability to enjoy the best possible audio quality.”

“Dolby Atmos is redefining how music is created, allowing artists and fans to experience it like never before,” said John Couling, Senior Vice President, Commercial Partnerships, Dolby Laboratories. “Together with TIDAL, we are expanding the reach of Dolby Atmos Music by enabling a more immersive way for people around the world to enjoy their favorite songs and albums.”

TIDAL will automatically default to this experience if a Dolby Atmos mix is available. Tracks will be identified by a “Dolby logo” visual badge as well as through a “Dolby Atmos” identifier that will display once a song is selected. Users can also click on the “Dolby Atmos” menu option under the “Explore” tab on the TIDAL app to explore the library of tracks available in Dolby Atmos. Dolby Atmos is now available to TIDAL members subscribing to the HiFi tier, which already features HiFi and Master quality audio.
