So, perhaps Tidal will survive after all. Hard to imagine it's a great investment, but Sprint must think otherwise.

Yes, you just answered the question you posed in another thread three weeks ago. "Tidal hasn't gone belly up yet? They've been bleeding cash since they started, never attracted enough subscribers to be cashflow positive." Personally, I enjoy Tidal HiFi and am happy that this should go a long way toward ensuring its survival. I'm particularly happy because I'm a Roon user, which I understand will likely soon be Sonos compatible.

We're in an uncomfortable time where content makers are owned by service providers. All the major carriers/cable companies are looking to abuse net neutrality via fast lanes for their specific content.

On a side note: I'm happy to hear this because Tidal is the best Sonos sound experience IMHO.
