Hulu has taken steps recently to more effectively compete in the streaming war. It lowered its basic, ad-supported plan to $5.99 from $7.99 in January, right after Netflix raised its prices. At the same time, Hulu raised the price of its Hulu with Live TV plan from $39.99 to $44.99.
Now, Hulu announced earlier this week that new and existing Spotify Premium users will be able to subscribe to a Hulu and Spotify package for $9.99 a month.
The offer includes Spotify Premium and Hulu with ads. Last year, Hulu and Spotify offered the same plan for $12.99 a month. Those subscribed to this package will be automatically enrolled into the $9.99 plan. The offer lasts until June 10.
Hulu and Spotify's bundle is becoming a better deal, the companies announced on earlier this week.
As of right now, new and existing Spotify Premium customers will be able to get ad-supported Hulu with their Spotify subscription in a package for $9.99 a month. Separately, Hulu with ads is currently $5.99 a month and Spotify Premium is $9.99 itself. (This bundle does not have an ad-free Hulu option, which costs $11.99 by itself.)
Existing Spotify Premium users can visit the "Your Services" page to activate ad-supported Hulu as part of their plan. New users can visit spotify.com/hulu to subscribe. There is a 30-day free trial for new subscribers.
The streaming war continues and this is definitely a great way to shake things up! Don’t you agree CritiX?
