Streaming music services

mantismantis Posts: 15,031
Hello all,
I heard Tidal is going out of business unless something turns around for them. Has anyone heard anything more recent?
Anyway what do you guys think about Deezer? How is the catalog?

I usually just use Apple Music for streaming, find music I like and go buy it. I don't rely on streaming for my listening when I want to sit down. But I'm interested in a high quality streaming service and just learned about Tidal which I wanted to try out. Anything else out there that would be worth checking out?
Another reason I'm looking at this is I have HEOS now in my home and Apple Music doesn't work on it directly. It's stupid the limitation of HEOS has for streaming services compared to Sonos. Sonos has which looks to be everything and HEOS is very limited to about 10 different ones. Deezer and Tidal are 2 of them. Spotify sucks now to as you have to jump in and out of the app to use it as it doesn't run on the HEOS or Sonos as I have both.

    Just go with Tidal, it could take a while before they go under, or someone else may buy them and continue the service.

    Your looking for an "upscale" streaming service, then yeah, they are the best.

    There are a few others that have cd quality streaming, partially anyway, but their catalogues are more limited.
