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".
But before folks jump at the new Spotify offer, there's plenty of fine print to consider. And now you'll also get Hulu. That would normally be priced at $5.99 per month.
Now Premium subscribers can forget the additional Hulu fee altogether. Obviously you'll need to stomach some adverts all the same: Hulu has a "no ads" package, but that's $11.99 per month. The offer is not, however, available to students or users of the Family plan. By the way, if you're a Hulu subscriber but not also a Spotify user, you can take advantage of the new bundle offer as long as you switch your billing to the latter app and don't have add-ons activated on your Hulu account. If they've not already created a Hulu account, they'll be prompted to do so.
If you already have Spotify Premium, you can activate Hulu as part of your account.
The bad news is that this isn't a permanent deal.
Spotify subscribers that are already taking advantage of the duo's $12.99 per month bundle from previous year will automatically see their monthly bill reduced to $9.99.
