Spotify has otherwise resisted calls to change the free service, insisting it needed a compelling offering to compete with YouTube, the world's most popular video site.

Spotify and Hulu have linked up once again, this time offering customers in the U.S. the chance to pay a single monthly subscription to enjoy both services. Billing is being handled by Spotify, not Hulu. They'll be able to try out the Hulu subscription for $10.99 - just one dollar more per month. The offering follows the success of a similar $4.99-a-month bundle for U.S. college students that was launched last September.

Loudr will contribute to Spotify's "continued effort towards a more transparent and efficient music publishing industry for songwriters and rights holders", Spotify said on its website.

For just $12.99/month, you'll get access to Spotify Premium and Hulu's base plan that includes limited commercials.


Bundling streaming services also automatically improves the content diversity available through a single subscription fee. Roughly 49% of SVOD subscribers consider content variety "extremely important", versus 33.5% who say it's "important", according to exclusive survey data from Business Insider Intelligence (see chart below). The deal is $5 less than purchasing the services separately.

Hulu is a leading premium streaming service that offers instant access to live and on demand channels, original series and films, and a premium library of TV and movies to more than 17 million subscribers in the U.S. Since its launch in 2008, Hulu has consistently been at the forefront of entertainment and technology.

Today, we are the worlds largest global music streaming subscription service with a community of over 157 million users, including over 71 million Spotify Premium subscribers, across 65 markets.
