You Can Now Combine Hulu and Spotify on a Single $12.99 Account

The companies plan to expand the joint offer to people not subscribing yet to Spotify from this summer.

On Wednesday, the two streaming giants expanded their existing partnership to offer consumers a rather attractive deal. The move, which was announced by TV-streaming service Hulu, will allow users to access both Spotify's Premium music service and Hulu's video-on-demand service for $12.99 (£9.15) per month. Spotify's 71 million-plus existing Premium users will get the first shot at upgrading to the bundled subscription.

Separately, Spotify Premium would cost $10 a month and Hulu's ad-supported version costs $8 monthly, so $13 is a deal.

Currently, ad-funded users are at the mercy of Spotify's playlist orders and have limited number of skips when accessing the radio-style service. The plan saves users about five dollars, as both plans would normally add up to $18.

Other music services typically use 40MB for the same amount of streaming, said Spotify.

"Hulu's TV content is highly acclaimed, and with this exclusive Spotify offer we are bundling two top media platforms for an unbeatable price", Spotify's Chief Premium Business Officer Alex Norstrom said in a statement.

The popular brands are expanding their original partnership, this time offering TV fans nationwide an affordable, all you can stream bundle of their own.

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

Bundling the services makes economic sense for Hulu and Spotify, as the deal is only available to those who get billed through the package, saving Hulu and Spotify money by cutting out third party billing agencies.

To sign up the bundle, follow the official Spotify website. Spotify is Apple Music's biggest rival in the USA, and the music streaming service looks to take on the recently launched Amazon Prime Music among others in the Indian market.
