That’s $5 cheaper than paying for them separately
Spotify and Hulu are today expanding their partnership and offering a bundle of both services to all consumers for $12.99 per month. That price gets you Spotify Premium and traditional, video-on-demand Hulu (with ads). Initially, this deal is only available to current Spotify Premium customers. The companies say everyone will be able to sign up for it sometime this summer.
Existing Spotify Premium customers can do a three-month trial of Hulu for an extra $0.99 / month before deciding if they want to make a full switch to the $12.99 plan. The catch there is that the trial is only available to either brand new Hulu subscribers or those who cancelled at least 12 months ago.
Spotify knows they have to stay competitive if they are going to continue to beat Apple.
