Music streaming service Tidal — whose big claim to fame is that it's collectively owned by artists — today announced discounted subscription plans for first-responders. That'd be folks like firefighters and EMTs and police officers — the folks who run toward a bad situation and get there first.
It's a 40 percent discount that'll work just fine on all of the devices supported by Tidal, which of course includes iPhones and Android devices.
And the discount is good for both the "premium" plan (which'll run $5.99 a month, down from the $9.99 a month everyone else pays) as well as the Tidal HiFi plan, which gets you lossless sound quality and HD music videos and costs $11.99 a month, down from the usual $19.99 a month.
We're celebrating those who take action on the front lines for #FirstRespondersMonth by launching our Community Heroes discount program. 🙏🏽— TIDAL (@TIDAL) October 10, 2019
First Responders in the U.S. are now eligible to receive 40% off both premium & HiFi plans.

The same discount, by the way, is available to folks in the military. Both groups will need to be in the United States, and will need to be able to confirm their eligibility, Tidal says.
In addition to the usual phones, Tidal also is available on Roku systems, as well as on Windows and Mac computers. It'll also stream in a webplayer, though HiFi playback is only supported in Chrome.
On-demand music owned by artists themselves
Know how streaming music has taken money out of the pockets of the people who make it? Tidal, which is owned by some of the top artists int he business, looks to put an end to that.
