(KGTV) - Streaming giants Spotify and Hulu are teaming up to combine their services in a plan built for college students who love to binge.
The two companies have started offering a "streaming entertainment bundle" for U.S. college students at $4.99 a month.
The bundle is basically the same Spotify Premium for Students subscription (with ads), which is already $4.99, but now includes a Hulu subscription added on. Premium student users just need to go in and flip the Hulu add-on on in their account.
Existing Hulu users with a Limited Commercials plan - with no add-ons, such as HBO or Showtime - can merge their account with their Spotify Premium for Students plan as well.
"By bundling our enormous catalogs of content together in a single, highly compelling offer, we’re making it easier for people to enjoy all of the TV and music they love, whenever and wherever they want," Tim Connolly, senior vice president at Hulu, said in a release.
Subscribers can cancel anytime. Any college students interested can sign up here.
The announcement is the "first step" in offering Spotify and Hulu services together, according to the companies. Spotify and Hulu plan to look at more ways to bundle their services for "offerings targeted at the broader market to follow."
