Tidal sure has come a long way since Jay-Z basically forgot about it. The high-profile release of Kanye West’s album The Life of Pablo led to it being streamed 250 million times in its first 10 days online last February. Think about how many giant plastic mouse heads that can buy.

Page Six reports that there are going to be huge animal shaped facial recognition obscurers for everyone, because Tidal will soon start streaming even more hot content right in our eyes:

Tidal has already put in a request to Apple for approval to add movie streaming to their app, we’re told, and the service could be up and running as early as June.

One source told us, “Tidal has upset everybody in the music business, the labels, Apple and [Interscope founder] Jimmy Iovine, and now it is taking on Netflix and Hulu.

“The movie service will feature original content as well as acquired films. Tidal hopes to work with an indie studio or producer on a partnership to create original movies.”

They also mention that Kanye West is developing a script with Bret Easton Ellis, which is not the nightmare scenario I needed to contemplate before bed. Otherwise, this sounds very exciting. Do your parents have a Tidal subscription password I could use?
