Hulu and Spotify are teaming up to give users a package deal. Instead of paying $7.99 for Hulu's limited commercials plan and $9.99 for Spotify Premium, the company's ad-free plan, users can now pay $12.99 per month for both. That equals $4.99 in savings for users who are currently paying for both services separately.
The deal is currently only available to users who are already paying for Spotify Premium, while the rest of us will have to wait until the summer to hop on board. Hulu is also letting Spotify's premium users sign up for a 99-cent promotion to try out its limited plan for three months.
This isn't the first time the two companies have joined forces. Last year, they introduced the same deal geared towards students, who were offered both services for just $4.99 per month. The bargain proved so popular that the two tech giants decided to make a similar offer to the public at large.
"Based on the outstanding performance of the Spotify and Hulu student package, it’s clear that consumers love to combine their music and television experiences together," said Tim Connolly, SVP, Head of Distribution and Partnerships at Hulu. "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."
If users decide to opt in, they'll gain access to ad-free streaming with access to over 40 million songs on Spotify, as well as 75,000 TV shows and movies on Hulu. Among them are original titles like The Handmaid's Tale and Marvel's Runaways, as well as well as network series like NBC's This is Us, FX’s Atlanta, and entire back catalogs of classics like Lost, ER, Seinfeld, Full House, and Family Matters.
