HFA’s Slingshot Supports TIDAL’s U.S. Launch
HFA (Harry Fox Agency) has signed a licensing and royalty administration services arrangement with music streaming service TIDAL to support the launch of their new CD quality streaming service. TIDAL’s owner Aspiro focuses on streaming high-quality audio tracks to consumers. In 2010 Aspiro launched its original service called WiMP Music in Norway and has since expanded into Denmark, Sweden, Germany and Poland.
For its U.S. entry, Aspiro has debuted a new platform, TIDAL, which is a subscription-based, multimedia streaming service that integrates high fidelity CD-quality audio, high-definition video and curated editorial. TIDAL is available for iOS and Android devices, as a web player for Macs and PCs and supports a broad range of home audio products.
“Slingshot services are designed to expedite music distributors’ market entry, and we are excited to be on the ground floor of TIDAL’s U.S. launch,” said Michael Simon, President and CEO of HFA. “A leader in high fidelity streaming, TIDAL seeks to maximize the consumer’s music experience, and HFA is committed to working with such innovators.” – Staff Writers
