Spotify and Hulu join forces with $12.99 subscription plan

Spotify Free users could be about to get a serious boost — here's why

On Wednesday, the two streaming giants expanded their existing partnership to offer consumers a rather attractive deal.

The current price of Spotify Premium is $9.99 per month and Hulu's ad-supported plan is $7.99, so the combined subscription saves $4.99 per month.

The subscription option has been dubbed "Spotify Premium, now with Hulu" and will come in about $5 cheaper than the total if someone were to subscribe to each service separately. Spotify is also looking to sweeten the deal by giving subscribers Hulu for 99 cents a month for the first three months of their subscriptions before raising the price. Finally, it's not open to those on the Spotify Premium for Family Plan.

Arizona Supreme Court Denies DACA Students In-State Tuition
On Monday, the Arizona Supreme Court ruled that DACA recipients are ineligible for in-state tuition at Arizona public colleges. And that, he said, means the state and its taxpayers would not be illegally subsidizing the cost of education for dreamers.

The inability to choose specific tracks is the main drawback when it comes to Spotify's free mobile service, but the company knows that it's this very limitation that prompts some users to switch to its paid model costing $10 Dollars a month.

Hulu is not available in the Republic.

Spotify is today launching a new bundle in the United States, in tandem with TV-on-demand service Hulu. The joint plan was initially rolled out in September for students only, but will be available for the general public beginning this summer.

It seems that basic cable is nearly gone, as many people don't need the hundreds of channels you will never watch.

By combining forces with Hulu, Spotify is able to offer its subscribers access to video - something it tried to tack on before through its own original video efforts, which largely flopped and were later scaled back. And even though Hulu is one of biggest streaming video services in the U.S., it still has just a third as many subscribers as Netflix's U.S. member base.

'This is just one example of how we can add value to our premium members day after day'.
