Spotify—as many of you top notch scotch music fans on SuperChillin already know—is a music streaming platform based in Sweden, of all places. And Hulu, for all you non-Americans out there, is a U.S.-based subscription video on demand service fully controlled and majority-owned by Walt Disney Direct-to-Consumer & International, a business segment of The Walt Disney Company, with Comcast's NBCUniversal as an equity stakeholder owning 33%.
How did Hulu start?
The service was initially established as a joint venture between News Corporation and NBC Universal, Providence Equity Partners, and later Walt Disney, serving as an aggregation of recent episodes of television series from their respective television networks. In 2010, Hulu launched a subscription service, initially branded as Hulu Plus, which featured full seasons of programs from the companies and other partners, and undelayed access to new episodes. In 2017, the company launched Hulu with Live TV—an over-the-top IPTV service featuring linear television channels. Time Warner (now WarnerMedia) later held a stake in the service. As of the first quarter of 2019, Hulu had 28 million subscribers.
Hulu's subscription service was launched in beta (preview) on June 29, 2010, and officially launched on November 17, 2010 under the branding Hulu Plus. The service remains advertising-supported, but it offers an expanded content library including full seasons, day-after access to current season content and more episodes of shows available. Hulu also launched Hulu Plus apps on other types of devices, including mobile, digital media players, and video game consoles. By the end of 2011, Hulu Plus had around 1.5 million subscribers.
On April 29, 2015, it was announced that the "Hulu Plus" branding would be discontinued, and that the service would be henceforth marketed as simply "Hulu" to place it in-line with its subscription-only competitors. By then, the service had grown to 9 million subscribers.
The Wall Street Journal reported in July 2015 that Hulu was exploring an advertising-free subscription option for around $12 to $14 a month. This was confirmed as going forward as of September 2, 2015, with a "No Commercials" plan priced at $11.99, $4 more than the $7.99 monthly rate for a "Limited Commercials" subscription, though a few highlighted network series (less than 10) would retain pre-roll and post-roll ad pods. Starting in 2019, Hulu plans to begin displaying on-screen ads when the viewer pauses the show, although it is unclear whether this will apply to customers on the $11.99/month No Ads plan.
In May 2016, Hulu announced that it had reached 12 million subscribers. In January 2018, Hulu announced that it had reached 17 million subscribers.
How do I get Hulu free with a Spotify Premium subscription?
First things first, go this this page on Spotify’s website and once you’re done signing up, be super sure to activate Hulu on the “Your Services” page within account settings. If you already get Hulu through Spotify, you won’t have to do anything to start saving an extra $3 per month. On the other hand, if you subscribe to Hulu and don’t yet have a Spotify account, you’ll need to cancel your billing through Hulu, then set it up through Spotify to receive the discount.
Users, when trying to learn more about this fantastic deal, search for terms like,” how to get hulu with spotify, how to get hulu with spotify premium, how to get free hulu with spotify, how to get hulu with spotify student, how to get hulu free with spotify, how to get hulu for free with spotify, how to get spotify premium with hulu, how to get spotify with hulu, how to get hulu with spotify account, how to get hulu with spotify, how to get hulu with spotify premium, how to get free hulu with spotify, how to get hulu with spotify student, how to get hulu free with spotify, how to get hulu for free with spotify, how to get spotify premium with hulu, how to get spotify with hulu, how to get hulu with spotify account.”
Unlike Spotify’s $4.99-a-month student plan, which bundles Hulu’s limited commercial plan, plus the Showtime channel alongside the music streaming service, its new promotion doesn’t include any other free extras. In fact, it actually restricts you from adding premium channels, like Showtime or HBO, to your account. (You’ll have to find another way to watch Game of Thrones in April.) It’s also a bummer that this deal excludes those who have a family plan. But for everyone else in the US, Spotify says that this offer is open until June 10th, 2019, or while supplies last.
So, there you go, you just precision struck TWO birds with ONE stone by signing up for Hulu via Spotify. Now enjoy the best deal in the history of music and content streaming ever by getting drenched in endless music and entertainment.
