Spotify, Hulu Team Up For Bundled $12.99 Plan

Spotify and Hulu want to make things at least a tad easier for you, offering a new Hulu Spotify bundle that gives you services from both companies for just one low price of $12.99.

Existing subscribers to Spotify's premium music streaming service, which offers a library of songs without advertisements, can now add a subscription to Hulu's on-demand streaming offering, which features some advertising, to their monthly bill.

The new plan aims to steer users away from third party deals, with Spotify's terms specifically noting that users who pay for the service through Apple's App Store or Google Play are not eligible for the Hulu deal.

Currently, Spotify Premium costs subscribers $9.99 a month, while Hulu's limited-commercial plan costs $7.99 a month. Spotify Premium now costs $10 per month, while Hulu with limited commercials costs $8 per month.

The Buccaneers are 6-3 all-time against Tennessee/Houston in August games, including a 3-2 mark on the road. The game against the Bengals will be played Sunday, August 26th at 4 pm and be shown nationally on Fox.

Spotify is available in 61 countries and has a user base of 159 million, including ad-supported free listeners. Spotify is also looking to sweeten the deal by giving subscribers Hulu for 99 cents a month for the first three months of their subscriptions before raising the price.

Streaming giants Hulu and Spotify are joining forces to offer a dual video and music streaming subscription. Furthermore, Hulu's "limited commercial" plan costs you $8 a month. So instead of paying $17.98, you pay $12.99. This is a restriction that extends to playlists, as free users are forced to listen to those on shuffle.

The new offer is available initially to existing Spotify Premium subscribers only. The TV and film streaming service created original series including The Handmaid's Tale.

Hulu's senior VP Tim Connolly agrees that the services Hulu offers dovetail nicely with Spotify.
