Spotify and Hulu today announced an expansion of their previous students-only initiative that bundled both services together for the low monthly cost of $4.99. Now all Spotify and Hulu subscribers in the United States will get a chance to lock into the same bundle through a single $12.99/month subscription price.

This bundle includes the ad-free Spotify Premium tier of the music streaming service (normally $9.99/month) and the Hulu With Limited Commercials plan (normally $7.99/month). The $12.99 bundle amounts to savings of $5 per month, and the companies noted that existing Spotify Premium subscribers will have early access to the offer.

“Based on the outstanding performance of the Spotify and Hulu student package, it’s clear that consumers love to combine their music and television experiences together,” said Tim Connolly, SVP, Head of Distribution and Partnerships at Hulu. “Hulu and Spotify are brands that are defining how fans connect with entertainment in the future, and we are excited to expand our partnership to bring this combined package to all existing and new Spotify Premium subscribers.”

Additionally, eligible Spotify Premium subscribers will be able to upgrade their existing plan to the new combo plan through an introductory offer that grants a three-month Hulu subscription for just $0.99, on top of their Spotify subscription. Afterwards, the $12.99/month price of the bundle will go into effect.

Here's a full breakdown of the initial pricing structure:

You’ll pay one bill to Spotify for both services. Your first month is the price of your Premium plan plus the Hulu 3-month trial price. After your trial, you’ll then start paying $12.99/month for both. Here’s what it looks like:

1st month: $9.99 + $0.99 + tax
2nd month: $9.99 + tax
3rd month: $9.99 + tax
Following months: $12.99 + tax

The companies said that they anticipate opening up the new bundle to anyone without a Spotify Premium account later this summer. Head over to Spotify's FAQ page for more info on the plan, which also states that it will not be possible to upgrade to the Hulu With No Commercials or Live TV plans, "nor to any Hulu Premium Add-ons."

As a Netflix-only subscriber, I forgot that paid Hulu tiers have commercials. A good deal nonetheless but I really hate watching ads.

I pay for Hulu without commercials, it's definitely worth the extra $5/month. I spent some time with relatives who have the cheaper bundle and half the time when the stream was interrupted by a commercial the app crashed.

Anyway, extremely disappointed a similar deal isn't available for the Hulu without commercials tier.

I would've jumped on in a heartbeat if this covered the commercial-free tier.
