Spotify Premium Now Includes Hulu's Ad-Supported Plan at No Extra Cost

Following a collection of student-related bundles, Spotify today announced that Spotify Premium will now include a free subscription to Hulu With Limited Commercials at no extra cost, for all users in the United States. The bundle is launching today and is open for sign-ups by Spotify Premium customers in the U.S. through June 10, 2019 (via The Verge).


Hulu With Limited Commercials recently lowered in price to just $5.99/month, but now Spotify Premium users will gain access to the video streaming service for free, as long as they stay subscribed to Spotify. This means that for $9.99/month, these users will be able to listen to all of the music on offer at Spotify, as well as stream the ad-supported version of Hulu.

To start saving, new Spotify Premium users can sign up for a 30-day free trial now and activate Hulu on the "Your Services" page in account settings. Those who already have Spotify Premium with Hulu, the company will automatically switch these users over from a $12.99/month price to the new $9.99/month price.

Lastly, those who already have a Hulu account but not Spotify will have to cancel their billing through Hulu and switch it over to Spotify. All Hulu plans connected to Spotify for this offer can not have any extras added onto it, so premium channels like HBO aren't allowed.

For the student bundles, Spotify and Hulu last August updated their offer by including Showtime. This means that eligible college students can get a Spotify Premium subscription ($9.99/month), Hulu With Limited Commercials subscription ($5.99/month), and a Showtime subscription ($10.99/month) for $4.99 per month total.

And only if you are new to Spotify Premium. That counts me out. Bummer.


Not true. Existing Spotify Premium users get the Free Hulu. Just go to the Spotify site and you will see the offer to activate. Login with your existing account, and you're good. I just did it.

Is it Hulu's best plan? No. But it's FREE!!! :)

Are Spotify Family plans included?

Nope, individual Spotify Premium plans only.

Nice win for Spotify.

Kinda feels like Hulu is getting desperate for subscribers though.

This is great, but even the "limited" ads are too much for me. We have ad-free Hulu and I find it worth the extra few bucks a month to not have to sit through the ads -- especially because they can never seem to come up with more than like three to put into a viewing session so I'm seeing the same ones over and over, which is even worse somehow.

And as usual with every Hulu promo ever offered, those of us with ad-free are ignored.
