Students who are feeling the pinch in regards to streaming services are about to get a break thanks to Hulu and Spotify. The two streaming giants are combining to offer a bundle at $4.99 per month to students, giving them access to both platforms for a price much lower than either of the two costs on their own.
According to a report from Broadcasting & Cable, the plan is essentially an add-on to Spotify’s existing student subscription, giving users access to Hulu’s limited commercial plan and Spotify’s premium service.
“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, senior, 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.”
“In bringing Spotify and Hulu together, we’re now able to offer students – both the millions already on Spotify Premium, and those who are new to Spotify – access to the world’s best music, TV and movie content in the simplest possible way,” said Alex Norstrom, chief premium business officer at Spotify. “We’re very excited to be partnering with Hulu – a like-minded company which is as focused as we are on delivering the very best in high quality streaming content.”
If you’re a student that subscribes to either service, it really wouldn’t make any sense for you *not* to take advantage of this.
What’s next, a combination package with Pandora and Netflix?
