Spotify, Hulu Team Up To Help Students

Spotify, Hulu Team Up To Help Students

Spotify, the leading music streaming service, has teamed up with Hulu, a powerful video streaming service, to create a plan that targets students.

The bundle called "Spotify Premium for Students, now with Hulu" will offer the same features existing music without ads offering for undergrads at Title IV accredited colleges or universities, according to Deadline. For that monthly fee, the mortarboard-bound can take their minds off their six-figure debt with Spotify Premium as well as Hulu, though the latter will have limited advertising. "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".

Mark Mulligan, managing director of MIDiA Research, a media and technology research company, said in a blog post Thursday the partnership gives Spotify "a smart way to get into the video market without getting in over its head".

Spotify is hoping a free Hulu subscription will be enough to tip the scales against Apple Music for any incoming freshman looking to become a first-time subscriber. If you're on the Spotify Family plan, say, you'll have to cancel your subscription and switch over to Premium, but you'll retain all your playlists.

Spotify Premium for Students now include Hulu for just $4.99. If you want to see if you're eligible, you can visit Spotify Premium for Students' webpage. And Spotify does verify enrollment through SheerID, so if you were hoping to use your old undergraduate email address to game the system, that's probably not going to work so well for you.

Normally, a Hulu membership would run subscribers $7.99 a month. But the two companies are making a move in an effort to boost their popularity among younger generations with Spotify's new and improved student bundle.
