Hulu and Spotify Team Up For Non-Student Bundle

Hulu and Spotify Team Up For Non-Student Bundle

To reel in the student demographic Spotify and Hulu announced a partnership that created a $5 per month option last year. As expected, it was wildly popular so the two have paired up for another bundle–this time for non-students called Spotify Premium, now with Hulu.

The new bundle will be available at $12.99 per month making it $5 less than the monthly cost for both Hulu and Spotify. Included in this bundle will be Spotify Premium which would normally run you for $9.99 per month and Hulu’s default limited commercials plan which is usually $7.99.

For those concerned about the larger plans such as Hulu with Live TV and Hulu with no commercials, you might have to wait. While the company hasn’t mentioned anything about pairing these plans with Spotify Premium it could very well be in the cards if this plan proves a success.

On top of that, there’s nothing that says Hulu couldn’t just come out with new pricing for existing members in the same way you can move from pricing tier to pricing tier. It’s what the company is doing with Hulu with Limited Commercials, after all.

In a statement, Hulu’s senior vice president and head of distributions and partnerships (long title, right) Tim Connolly said “Hulu and Spotify are brands that are defining how fans connect with entertainment in the future, and we are excited to expand our partnership to bring this combined package to all existing and new Spotify Premium subscribers.”

You will be able to sign up for Spotify Premium, now with Hulu during the summer. To ween users in, the Hulu side of the bundle will be available to Spotify subscribers on a trial basis of $3 for three months.
