Spotify, Hulu partner on Dollars 5 streaming bundle for students

Spotify and Hulu have announced their plans to team up to give United States college students access to both of their premium subscriptions for just $5 per month. If you're not a Spotify user, Apple Music, Tidal and other services have similar student plans to offer, but they all come sans the Hulu subscription.

Hulu's Limited Commercials plan will now be tacked on to Spotify's Premium student accounts, combining both streaming services in a single subscription.

"If you're a student enrolled at a US Title IV accredited college or university, and above the age of 18, then...you'll need to subscribe directly to Spotify and not through a third party (e.g., a cell phone provider)".

The package will grant access to Hulu's ad-supported "Limited Commercials" video streaming plan and Spotify's full music streaming catalog without ads. T-Mobile US Inc said Wednesday it will offer a free Netflix subscription with its unlimited data family plans. You can go here for more information and to sign-up. 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.

However, both companies have offered a glimmer of hope for those of us who left our respective college campuses long ago. That's a pretty remarkable deal for students.

In July, Netflix topped 100 million subscribers worldwide. Those plans failed, but Spotify did confirm that it would continue to focus on music-oriented videos.
