The partnership with Spotify may also help Hulu to compete with rival streaming service Netflix Inc. The music streaming service is giving away its Premium subscription for $4.99 per month coupled with a Hulu subscription completely free. You must subscribe directly through Spotify to take advantage of this deal (in other words, if your cell phone plan comes with a free Spotify subscription, you're out of luck). "We're very excited to be partnering with Hulu - a like-minded company which is as focused as we are on delivering the very best in high quality streaming content". This offer does not apply to those are already out of college (and for them the regular Spotify subscription stands at $10 a month, but there are Family plans for up to 6 people that can bring that price down for non-students).
