Hulu, Spotify launch $5 bundle for college students

Posted September 08, 2017

Spotify has announced that it will be teaming up with Hulu to offer a special premium streaming bundle for college students in the United States. Spotify's student plan is already $4.99 monthly, so you're basically getting Hulu tossed in for free.

Existing users of Spotify's student plan or subscribers to Hulu can merge their existing plan with this bundle.

Spotify said the new bundle is only the beginning of the partnership between the two companies, and that there will be "offerings targeted at the broader market to follow".

She had a hole-in-one Wednesday in the pro-am playing alongside Nancy Lopez, the only three-time victor in event history. After Chun's chip settled six feet from the hole, Lewis had two putts to win. "It was a great round today", Chun said.

"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, head of distribution and partnerships at Hulu.

The package is Spotify's first TV and movie partnership, and combines with Hulu's limited commercials plan. Customers can subscribe through Spotify or Hulu for the offer.

You need to be above 18 and enrolled in a US Title IV college, and if you already have Spotify Premium you can easily upgrade and add Hulu, no worries. If you're on the Spotify Family plan, say, you'll have to cancel your subscription and switch over to Premium, but you'll retain all your playlists. And Spotify does verify enrollment through SheerID, so if you were hoping to use your old undergraduate email address to game the system, that's probably not going to work so well for you. The type of Hulu service that is included in the promo is the Hulu Limited Commercials plan.

Student subscriptions will be billed through Spotify, but Hulu will get a cut of the revenue from the bundles, according to a person familiar with the arrangement.

The entertainment bundle, $13 cheaper than the regular combined price, is the latest effort in the industry to gain young millennial customers, who favor low-priced online streaming and listening.
