Modern entertainment and streaming devices provide the best opportunities or “value” if you will, for when you finally decide to cut the cord. That is, no more paying for inordinate cable and broadcast fees. Instead, you only opt for internet access and turn to online streaming apps and services like Netflix and Hulu.
In the past, this was difficult if your media needs stretched beyond traditional movies and TV show programs. But then services like Pandora and Spotify appeared, and lo’ and behold’ you could effectively cut the cord entirely; opting instead to stream any and all media content.
Here’s a shout-out to the glory that is modern smart entertainment! Thank you.
Of course, we’re here to discuss a new bundle offered through a partnership between Hulu and Spotify. Both services will be offering an exclusive streaming bundle, for just one consolidated price. This is great news for anyone that has already “cut the cord” or plans to do so in the near future.
Here’s What the Hulu and Spotify Streaming Bundle Will Get You
With the subscription you’ll gain access to both Hulu and Spotify’s streaming libraries.
For the time being, only those with an existing Spotify subscription can take advantage of the bundle, but it will be rolled out to everyone sometime later this summer.
Spotify, alone, costs about $10 a month. But you can pay a total of $13 and get access to both Spotify and Hulu’s libraries. It’s worth noting that Hulu alone costs $8, so this is a great deal.
As if that wasn’t good enough, when you first sign up you’ll only pay $1 extra on top of your regular Spotify subscription fee, for the first three months. After that, the $13 monthly charge will kick in. Technically, this means you can access a cheap trial to see how the service works for you before committing in full.
For $13 a month, you get access to Hulu and Spotify. Usually, Hulu is $8 and Spotify is $10.
This is an extension of the Spotify and Hulu student subscription that rolled out last year. Obviously, the companies are making an offer available to everyone with this program.
What do you think of this news? Will you subscribe to the streaming bundle?
If you already have a Hulu subscription—without premium add-ons like HBO—you can take advantage of the deal too. You’ll just have to swap your billing and account over to Spotify.
