Spotify and Hulu are launching a streaming bundle, dubbed “Spotify Premium, now with Hulu,” which brings together the two services for $12.99 per month.
The new subscription plan will give subscribers access to ad-free music on Spotify Premium as well as 75,000 current and classic hit television shows and movies. Existing Spotify Premium members will have early access to the bundle plan as well as a 99-cent promotional offer to try the Hulu Limited Commercials plan for three months.
The new subscription plan will be available this summer.
“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.”
Alex Norstrom, chief premium business officer at Spotify, added, “Our student launch with Hulu was incredibly well received and we are excited to extend our reach by bringing Hulu to more of our Premium members in the US. Hulu’s TV content is highly acclaimed, and with this exclusive Spotify offer we are bundling two top media platforms for an unbeatable price. This is just one example of how we can add value to our premium members day after day.”
The college student bundle also combined Hulu’s Limited Commercials streaming library with Spotify’s Premium subscription plan, both on the same bill.
Spotify launched in 2008 and has since amassed over 157 million users across 65 markets. Hulu is a streaming service that was also launched in 2008 and features Hulu Original shows like “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “The Looming Tower,” “Marvel’s Runaways” and “The Path.” Hulu also offers episodes of shows like “This Is Us,” “Atlanta,” “Lost,” “ER” and “Full House.”
