Spotify, Hulu Team Up For Bundled $12.99 Plan

Spotify, Hulu Team Up For Bundled $12.99 Plan

Current Spotify Premium users can upgrade starting today, and the plan will be opened up to everyone later this summer. This joint subscription will you get you Spotify's full service, as well as Hulu's entry-level tier.

As opposed to shelling out $9.99 per month for Spotify's on-demand music service, a subscriber can now opt to pay $12.99, which will also include Hulu's Limited Commercials plan.

For the first three months, existing Spotify Premium subscribers will get the Hulu bundle for $1 per month.

A Spotify bundle with Hulu combines the two subscriptions and cuts their aggregate price. This new plan will allow people to enjoy ad-free music on Spotify premium and Hulu with limited commercials. Any of the 71 million people now paying for Spotify Premium (in the US) will get the chance to trial Hulu for three months for just 99 cents, after which the subscription price will go up to $3 a month (on top of the Spotify subscription).




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

Hoping to fend off subscriber gains from rival Apple, Spotify has announced an expanded partnership with Hulu.

Hulu is growing, too, thanks to popular original series like The Handmaid's Tale. The company's next logical step moving forward is finding a way to further expand its user base in order to give investors the assurance that the platform continues to grow. The labels scored one victory a year ago in the latest round of negotiations, convincing Spotify to let artists delay the release of new works on the free service.

This is a great business move, as Spotify has 71 MILLION monthly users, with Hulu only at 17 million.
