Currently, if you were to subscribe to Spotify and Hulu with your college email, it'd cost you around $13 a month, or around $17 a month if you didn't want commercials. However, thanks to a new deal provided by both streaming services, if you're a college student, you can now subscribe to Spotify and Hulu for the low low price of only $5 a month.

That essentially means you'd be getting Hulu for free every month with your Spotify subscription. How amazing is that?! Think of all the money you'd save after like a year of enjoying both Hulu and Spotify!

Both companies seemed very excited about this partnership as Spotify Chief Premium Business Officer commented on the merger, "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.”

Hulu shared this sentiment as Tim Connolly, Head of Distribution and Partnerships at Hulu, agreed, "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.”

Now I know what you're wondering, what if you already have a Spotify Premium student account? Then all you have to do is activate the Hulu side on your Spotify account. It really is just that simple. You can check out more info on Spotify's website here!
