Spotify and Hulu have announced they are partnering to offer US college students a premium entertainment streaming bundle, allowing them to stream music, TV and movies through a single subscription plan.
This is the first step the companies are taking to bundle their services together, with offerings targeted at the broader market to follow. It also marks the first TV and movie service partnership for Spotify.
The Spotify Premium for Students, now with Hulu package is available to all qualifying new and existing Spotify student subscribers and offers access to both Spotify Premium and to Hulu’s limited commercials plan at $4.99 a month.
“We are proud to announce Spotify as our newest strategic partner - they’re an iconic brand in music streaming and a proven leader in reaching and engaging young consumers,” said Tim Connolly, SVP, head of distribution and partnerships at Hulu. “By bundling our enormous catalogues of content together in a single, highly compelling offer, we’re making it easier for people to enjoy all of the TV and music they love, whenever and wherever they want.”
