For $9.99 a month, users can now access both services.

Spotify subscribers can now enjoy Hulu as part of their $9.99 Premium memberships, the companies announced on Tuesday (March 12) as an expansion of their existing partnership. The streaming services last year teamed on a discounted bundle at $12.99 per month, as well as previous discounted rates for students.    

The promotion extends to all eligible Spotify Premium individual users, both new and existing, including Hulu's ad-supported plan at no additional cost to subscribers in the U.S.

Last month, Hulu dropped its price for ad-supported subscriptions to  $5.99 from $7.99. 

"Today is the first time that we're offering a Hulu plan to the masses as part of their $9.99 Spotify Premium subscription," said Marc Hazan, vp global head of premium business development at Spotify in a statement. "As we push towards making Spotify Premium a gateway to a bigger world of entertainment, we're fully committed to finding new ways to enhance the overall experience for our Premium users and this is just the beginning."

Spotify currently counts 40 million songs and podcasts on its service, while Hulu claims more than 85,000 episodes of TV, movies and original content such as popular series The Handmaid's Tale and Pen15

The announcement follows new benefit bundles Spotify has unveiled over the past year, including partnerships with Google Home and an expanded student plan with Showtime and Hulu subscriptions. 

Spotify users can activate their Hulu ad-supported plan subscriptions through the new promotion at the Your Services page and any users currently paying $12.99 per month as part of last year's bundle offer will be automatically migrated to lower price. 

New subscribers can sign up for the bundle at Spotify.com/hulu, receiving their first 30 days for free. The offer is currently open until June 10, 2019.
