Spotify now offering free Hulu subscription for its Premium customers

Melba Vasquez | 12 March, 2019, 21:21

Spotify's global head of premium business development Marc Hazan opened up about the venture: "Today is the first time that we're offering a Hulu plan to the masses as part of their $9.99 Spotify Premium subscription".

As the market continues to flood with a growing number of music, TV, and film streaming options, it's going to become more and more likely that some will pair together in an effort to corner subscriber wallets.

Now Premium subscribers can forget the additional Hulu fee altogether.

Spotify already had a good thing going by bundling Spotify Premium and Hulu for $12.99 each month. Hulu does require access to Spotify account details and playlists as part of the integration.

Hulu offers hit original content like The Handmaid's Tale in addition to thousands of other movies and TV series.

That means you get on-demand, ad-free access to Spotify's library of music and podcasts - along with Hulu's ad-supported plan - for just $9.99 each month.

There are some caveats. If you already pay for the $12.99 Spotify Premium bundle which includes Hulu, you don't have to do anything - the new price will automatically appear on your next bill. And the bundle is only available to customers in the U.S.

Spotify initially offered free Hulu to students in 2017 by bundling the limited commercial tier of Hulu (aka the one with not quite so many ads), Spotify Premium and Showtime for $4.99 a month.

Will you be cashing in on the joint subscription?
