Hulu and Spotify to Offer Subscription Bundle This Summer

Spotify Free users could be about to get a serious boost — here's why

Existing US-based Spotify subscribers can upgrade to the package from today (April 11), and Spotify says it will be rolled out to non-subscribers this summer.

On Wednesday, the two streaming giants expanded their existing partnership to offer consumers a rather attractive deal.

The streaming companies will offer a combined version of their Spotify Premium and basic ad-supported Hulu services for a total of $12.99. They could save a few dollars by buying the bundle instead of subscribing to both services separately. Following up on last year's successful launch of Spotify Premium for Students, you can now add a Hulu subscription to the mix. Also, eligible subscribers are being offered a 99-cent promotion to try Hulu's limited-ads plan for three months. The Limited Commercials plan costs $7.99 on its own.

Meanwhile, Spotify this week launched a new Premium subscription plan that includes Hulu for $12.99 a month. After that the plan will adjust to the regular price of $12.99 a month.

Sunny skies, highs in the upper 60s Tuesday in Oklahoma City
Monday's temperatures for most of the state were average which made for a pretty nice day after prolonged cold and snow. There's also a wind advisory along the central and northern coastline, in addition to the Northwest Interior areas.

Instead, once you since up you will be redirected to Hulu's website where you can either create an account (if you don't already have one) or link your existing Hulu account to Spotify's billing. That service, rumors suggest, will be sold as part of an Apple Music subscription or even ship with iOS.

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

Spotify said the student offer was "incredibly well received".

Do you think Spotify's free service is in need of a tune-up? And even though Hulu is one of biggest streaming video services in the USA, it still has just a third as many subscribers as Netflix's United States member base.
