On Wednesday, the two streaming giants expanded their existing partnership to offer consumers a rather attractive deal.
With subscribers tiring of juggling multiple payments each month, its makes sense that Hulu and Spotify have created a combined offering that includes a subscription to Hulu's ad-supported service and Spotify Premium for one price-$12.99 per month.
Spotify and Hulu previously joined forces past year to offer a $5 subscription bundle for students, and the success of that offering sounds like it was a big reason for this new bundle. In a press release today, the two companies announced they would be joining forces to offer a package deal, services from both companies for just $13 a month.
Following a successful pairing aimed at college students, Hulu and Spotify create a music and TV subscription for $12.99 per month.
Arizona Supreme Court: No more in-state tuition for Dreamers
On Monday, the Arizona Supreme Court ruled that DACA recipients are ineligible for in-state tuition at Arizona public colleges. Yet the academic future of 18-year-old Yanez and thousands of other Dreamers in Arizona is in doubt.
Spotify Premium subscribers are able to add Hulu at a trial rate of $.99 for the first three months. Spotify Premium now costs $10 per month, while Hulu with limited commercials costs $8 per month.
Customers can stream Spotify's 40 million songs and Hulu's 75,000 TV shows and films for $12.99 (€10.50) a month - about $5 cheaper than the prices of the individual plans.
Popular streaming services Hulu and Spotify are linking up, saving you money as you stream. So in the United Kingdom, that brings the price down from £9.99 a month to £8.99, and in the U.S. it's similarly down from $9.99 to $8.99. As many of you probably already know, Spotify now exists in two different forms: free and paid. That service, rumors suggest, will be sold as part of an Apple Music subscription or even ship with iOS. Spotify has grown into the world's biggest streaming music service, but it remains dramatically unprofitable because of music royalty costs.
Hulu's Limited Commercials plan retails for $7.99 on its own, which is certainly a steal when factoring in a Spotify Premium subscription as well.
