“We recognize that music streaming is one of the most important services for consumers,” said Marcelo Claure, Sprint president and CEO. “More than two-thirds of mobile subscribers stream music an average of 45 minutes per day, making our partnership with TIDAL a natural fit for Sprint and our commitment to offering innovative, affordable and worry-free service. We’re providing our customers and anyone who signs up for Sprint a complimentary six-month trial of TIDAL HiFi so they can experience all the unique and exclusive content TIDAL has to offer.”

Now is the perfect time to switch to Sprint. In addition to receiving a complimentary six-month trial of TIDAL HiFi, Sprint provides switchers with a clean slate by covering switching fees up to $650 per line via prepaid reward card.2 Only Sprint delivers 50 percent off most national carriers’ rate plans and the best deals on the latest phones.

In addition, the TIDAL and Sprint partnership will support the 1Million Project, an initiative from Sprint and the Sprint Foundation that will connect 1 million low-income U.S. high school students who don’t have internet access at home, to help level the playing field and eliminate the “homework gap.” Participating students will receive free mobile devices and free high-speed wireless internet connectivity while in high school for up to four years.
Starting June 9, Sprint will donate $2 from every new line activation with a device purchase or lease – up to $1 million – to support the 1Million Project.4 For more information about Sprint’s initiative to equip high school students with the tools they need to succeed, visit sprint.com/1millionproject.
“Education is key to a bright future, and unfortunately not everyone has access to the tools and resources needed to succeed, including internet access and mobile devices,” said TIDAL artist-owner, Nicki Minaj. “I’m so proud to work with Sprint and TIDAL, who are prioritizing programs like the 1Million Project in order to ensure that a student’s zip code and family financial situation aren’t roadblocks to a successful future.”
As Sprint and TIDAL continue to deliver an unparalleled entertainment experience, Sprint customers can expect to enjoy more exclusive content from their favorite artists during the next few months. Among the highly anticipated content are special exclusives for Sprint customers and existing TIDAL members. Music fans are encouraged to sign up now.
