Hulu and Spotify are teaming up so that you can stream "The Handmaid's Tale" and Cardi B for less.
The two services teamed up last fall to offer a students-only special bundle for a discounted price. Now, they're offering a version of that to everyone. The bundle includes traditional, on-demand Hulu (with ads) and Spotify Premium and costs $12.99, which is $4.99 less than separate subscriptions.
Starting today, existing Spotify Premium customers can sign up for a three-month Hulu trial for 99 cents (but only if they are new to Hulu). This summer, the bundle will be rolled out to all Spotify users this summer.
This partnership has benefits to both sides. Hulu can woo Spotify's 71 million customers to watch its original and library programming, including its Emmy-winning drama "The Handmaid's Tale," Marvel superhero teen thriller "Runaways," and the upcoming miniseries "Little Fires Everywhere" starring Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington." As for Spotify, this gives them entry into streaming video after a lackluster attempt at its own original programming.
