Hulu and Spotify Team Up to Offer Combined Subscription

Seven months after Spotify and Hulu teamed up to sell a discounted bundle of their services to college students, the two companies are bringing the offer to a wider audience.

Following a quiet launch past year as part of a student plan, Spotify Premium with Hulu has now been expanded as a wider $12.99 monthly offer for United States users.

"With the updated service, free mobile listeners will be able to access playlists more quickly and have more control over what songs they hear on top playlists, mimicking Spotify's ad-free subscription product."

Spotify and Hulu started packaging themselves together for college students past year, who needed to show proof of their collegiate status. To make this deal even more appealing, they will only be charging $1 for the first three months of Hulu access, not too shabby. If you are already an existing Spotify Premium customer, then you can get a 3 month trial of Hulu for an extra $0.99 per month. Spotify Premium is ordinarily $9.99 a month, while the basic Hulu plan is $7.99 a month.

It may not be a buy-one-get-one-free deal, but an offering from Spotify and Hulu comes pretty close. The plan saves users about five dollars, as both plans would normally add up to $18.

"Based on the outstanding performance of the Spotify and Hulu student package, it's clear that consumers love to combine their music and television experiences together", Hulu senior vice president Tim Connolly said in a statement.

"In fact really this deal seems to be Hulu's way of luring Spotify's almost 71 million active subscribers onto its cord-cutting service".

Simply set up your Spotify subscription through the Sony service, and you can knock ten percent off the monthly fee.

Back in September, this bundle is available only for students, but now it is rolled out to everyone.
