Watch this: Tidal's new TV show is season two of a YouTube series

Tidal knows what the people want

Money Violence

Spotify won't be the only music service in the video streaming arena once Jay-Z's hi-def streaming service Tidal gets back into the game on Feb. 9.

Its second show, called Money & Violence, is a continuation of the YouTube series that failed to reach its crowdfunding goals at the end of last year. The second season of the series will be available as a limited exclusive on the hi-def streaming service from Feb. 9 to Feb. 16, before returning to YouTube for the standard audio resolution masses.

Violence & Money is the second video series to premiere on the service, coming after the half-hour stand-up series No Small Talk, which launched in November of last year.

Here's the trailer:

Of course, Tidal's finance planners probably also had their eye on Netflix's announcement that they reached 75 million subscribers last month which raised some eyebrows as well.
