With the boom of streaming services, Tidal has dominated audiophiles’ hearts for its high audio quality. Apart from it, Tidal’s easy compatibility also offers great convenience. Tidal brings you closer to over 100 million tracks, curated playlists, favorite artists, and more whether you are on the Tidal app or the Tidal Web Player. But someone may want a bit more and opt to connect Tidal to TVs or smart speakers for an immersive experience. Among these, Roku is a nice choice.

Roku devices are designed for fast, easy access to music, TV, live news, sports, movies, and more you love. Roku makes it easier to stream tunes from Amazon Music, Spotify, Apple Music, and more. Seeing this, you may wonder if is Tidal on Roku. The answer is obviously positive. Now, let’s scroll down to get Tidal on Roku for listening.  

Part 1. Is Tidal Available on Roku?

Earlier in the article, we stated that there is a Tidal Roku integration. Since September 2019, the Tidal app has landed on Roku formally. Tidal listeners are in for a treat and are eligible to directly stream tracks, videos, and other exclusive content on the Tidal Roku app. Pay attention that Tidal Roku integration is available in Canada, USA, France, United Kingdom, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, and Ireland.

Moreover, to access Tidal Roku or to stream Roku Tidal HiFi, a Tidal premium account is required. The Tidal HiFi plan charges $9.99 a month which offers lossless High-Fidelity sound quality. And the Tidal HiFi-Plus for $19.99/month presents HiFi, Dolby Atmos, MQA, and 360 Reality Audio, bringing a feeling of actually being in the songs. Both options offer a 30-day free trial, and you are allowed to sign up directly through the Roku Tidal app.


Up to now, Tidal Roku Atmos is not available. Tidal Dolby Atmos is only compatible with iPhone, limited Android devices, Echo Studio, Apple TV 4K, Nvidia Shield TV, and Fire TV(running OS 6 or later).

Part 2. Official Way to Listen to Tidal on Roku

After knowing Tidal is available on Roku, we’ve set out to find out how to play Tidal on Roku. Here’re two alternative ways to get Tidal Roku integration. Feel free to choose the one most suits you.

Option 1. Stream Tidal on Roku via Tidal Roku App

There is a Tidal Channel on Roku devices, thus, it is convenient and simple to access your Tidal content on Roku. Here’s how to get the Tidal app for Roku.

2) From the left pane, select the Streaming Channels option and use the remote to enter Tidal on the Search Channels box.

3) After selecting the correct Tidal app, hit on Add channel.

4) Once the Tidal Roku app is added, choose Go to Channel to open Tidal.

5) Sign into your active Tidal account to access your Tidal library and start listening.

Option 2. Cast Tidal to Roku TV from Mobile

In addition to the above Tidal Roku channel, you can choose the mirroring way to cast Tidal tracks through your mobile device. This method needs your Tidal app as an intermediary to connect Tidal and Roku devices.

Part 3. Best Way to Play Tidal on Roku without Subscription

You can choose the above 2 ways to listen to Tidal on Roku. As we stated in Part 1, Tidal for Roku is only available for 10 counties. If your region is not included in these countries, then you can’t add Tidal to Roku for playing directly. Moreover, the official way requires a Tidal subscription. Fortunately, there is a way can help you play Tidal on Roku even if you are not in the eligible country or you are not a paid user. That is to get Tidal local files and then transfer them into Roku for playing.

It is a truism that all streaming services including Tidal applies DRM protection, so you can’t find Tidal local files even though you downloaded them. Therefore, to get Tidal local files, all you need is a Tidal Music Converter.  

Tunelf Tidal Music Converter is a powerful converting tool as well as DRM removal designed for Tidal users. Adopting an advanced decryption technology, Tunelf can download songs from Tidal to unprotected MP3, FLAC, AAC, M4A, M4B, and WAV to your computer locally. Among Tunelf-supported formats, MP3, AAC, and FLAC are compatible with Roku. That is to say, once you get Tidal MP3s, you can directly upload them to Roku Media Player which allows you to enjoy your personal music files. For Tidal Free users, it even removes ads after conversion. Meanwhile, Tunelf Tidal Music Converter is able to keep the lossless sound quality and the original ID3 tag info. Now, let’s see how to use it to download Tidal songs for Roku.

Step 2 Configure the Output Format

Now, all added songs will display on the main window of Tunelf. Click the 3-line button in the upper right corner and select Preferences. On the pop-up window, switch to the Convert tab where you are free to customize the output format, channel, sample rate, and bit rate. To make Tidal songs can be readable on Roku, retain the default MP3 format. If you make other changes, don’t forget to click OK to save the settings.

When everything is ready, hit on the Convert button at the bottom and Tunelf will finish the conversion in a few seconds at a 5x faster speed. Once the conversion is done, go to the Converted history list to browse all your converted Tidal files. You are allowed to use the search icon next to each song to locate them in your computer’s local folder or play them with the built-in media player.

Step 4 Play Tidal on Roku via a USB Drive

The next step you should do is to move those converted and playable Tidal files to a USB drive.

1) Plug a USB drive into your computer and create a unique folder for Tidal songs. Then copy and paste those MP3 files or the whole folder to the USB drive.

2) Now, head to Roku Media Player and insert the USB drive containing Tidal songs into your Roku device.

3) Once detected, a USB Drive icon should show up in the media device selection screen.

4) On Roku Media Player, select Audio from the Media Type Selection screen.

5) Choose the USB drive and navigate to the created folder where you used to store Tidal songs.

When the Tidal song is playing, you can pause, skip forward and skip backward using the Play/Pause button, Forward Scan button, and Reverse Scan button on your Roku remote control. To stop playback, just press the Back button.  


With a Tidal subscription, you can directly access the Tidal channel on Roku. But before doing so, make sure you would not be limited to playing due to the country’s restrictions. If you want to get rid of this limitation or want to stream Tidal on Roku without a subscription, Tunelf Tidal Music Converter is the best choice. It can help you get Tidal songs as physical files and then put them on Roku or any other device for listening with absolute ease.
