New Spotify Premium subscribers now get Hulu for free

Premium users can now access Hulu series like The Handmaid's Tale and Castle Rock, along with 85,000 additional television episodes. But if you pay for Hulu separately, you'll need to cancel there and start over on Spotify instead to take advantage of the deal. Subscribers who gain Hulu access through this deal will also not have access to Hulu Live TV, or premium network add-ons like HBO, Showtime, and Starz.

"Today is the first time that we're offering a Hulu plan to the masses as part of their $9.99 Spotify Premium subscription", Marc Hazan, Spotify's global head of premium business development, said in a statement, according to Engadget. Even then, some shows on its service will still have pre-roll adverts because of the terms of Hulu's licensing agreements with content providers. This offer is not available for Spotify family subscribers.

Spotify has teamed up with Hulu in the past. Spotify says it will be running the offer until June 10, 2019, or alternatively "while supplies last", whichever comes first.

Starting Tuesday, now subscribers can activate the Hulu bundle or link their current account at the Your Services page on Spotify. Spotify has a big trick up its sleeve to lure in Premium subscribers - and that's thousands of TV shows and movies on Hulu.

Existing Spotify Premium users need only visit the Your Services Page on your Spotify account to activate Hulu's ad supported plan as part of your account.
