Jay Z's new streaming service already expanding to 22 new countries Tidal, the high-quality music streaming service recently acquired by rapper Jay Z, is already planning a major expansion.
The service will expand to 22 new countries in the Q1 2015, including Austria, Czech Republic, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, France, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Switzerland, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, South Africa and Turkey.

Currently, Tidal is only available in the US, UK, Scandinavia, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands yet still parent company Aspiro says Tidal and their other streaming service Wimp have 500,000 paying subscribers.

Tidal CEO Andy Chen added: "We continue to accelerate our expansion, as demand for our product keeps rising. Besides directly from consumers, we are also seeing a very strong growth from new home audio partners. We now have 37 confirmed partners to offer Tidal across the broadest selection of home audio systems."

"After just three months live with Tidal in the US, we are already seeing 18% of streams coming from home audio systems, increasing steadily month by month, as new integrations get up and running. Experiencing Tidal on high-quality home audio systems and headphones proves just how good high-quality music streaming can sound. 2015 will be the year a lot of people discover that."
