Streaming fans can now have Hulu and Spotify at a combined rate.

 

The two platforms have combined for a total monthly fee of $12.99. Usually, this would cost $18. Students can even bundle for $4.99, according to the press release.

 

Alex Norstrom, Spotify chief premium business officer, told Variety, "Our student launch with Hulu was incredibly well received, and we are excited to extend our reach by bringing Hulu to more of our Premium members in the U.S. With this exclusive Spotify offer, we are bundling two top media platforms for an unbeatable price."

The plan is trying to lure users away from third-party deals. They also note that users that pay through Apples App Store and Google Play aren't eligible for the deal. The idea is that users will be able to use those savings to pay for the more premium Hulu packages.

 

It could also be an advantage for Spotify, with new music streaming services like Tidal and Apple Music, combining with Hulu is a big plus for cord-cutters.
