With Apple about to announce their new streaming service on March 25th, Spotify and Hulu are teaming up ahead of the Apple announcement. “Today is the first time that we’re offering a Hulu plan to the masses as part of the $9.99 Spotify Premium subscription,” says Marc Hazan, global head of premium business development for Spotify, in a statement released yesterday. “As we push towards making Spotify Premium a gateway to a bigger world of entertainment, we’re fully committed to finding new ways to enhance the overall experience for our Premium users and this is just the beginning.” The details were dropped on Spotify’s official blog: US subscribers on the $9.99-a-month premium tier will receive free subscriptions to the ad-supported tier of Hulu, which typically runs $5.99 a month. The Spotify-and-Hulu bundle’s $12.99 fee is also slashed to $9.99. The new combo deal makes Hulu’s catalog of 85,000 TV episodes binge-able for the roughly 20 million Spotify subscribers in America. “Devour Hulu’s library of hit TV series and films, current shows from every major U.S. broadcast network, and acclaimed Hulu Originals to your heart’s desire at no extra charge,” the blog post says. “That’s right, you are getting Hulu on us.” But surely there’s a catch, right? The deadline to sign up for this “limited quantity” offer is June 10.
