Spotify and Hulu have announced a partnership today. What this partnership means for us? Well, due to this many eligible students will be able to sign up for Spotify Premium at the usual price of $4.99/month. They will also be able to get access to Hulu’s Limited Commercials plan with no extra charges. In a press release by Hulu, the company said that the Spotify Hulu partnership was basically restructuring the two most widely used services used by students and bringing them into one subscription plan. Making things easier since forever.
Spotify Hulu Partnership - Combination of the future
The next question that arises is that who are these eligible candidates? The bundle is available for all the qualifying new and existing Spotify student subscribers. They will be able to immediately access the combination of Spotify Premium’s music service and Hulu’s basic Limited Commercial, TV-streaming package. Users will also be able to enjoy other individual services using the brands’ apps. The Spotify Hulu partnership is indeed a great opportunity for both the companies and the users as well.
According to Alex Nostrom, Chief Premium Business Officer of Spotify, “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. 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.”
Tim Connolly, SVP, Head of Distribution and Partnerships at Hulu said,” 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. 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.”
According to Hulu, the Spotify Hulu partnership is the ‘first step’ that each company has taken to bring the services together and there is a possibility that similar bundles will come forward in the future. Interesting right? What do you think?
