Listen to your favorite music, watch your favorite shows, and catch up on a few series you couldn't watch before with this expanded bundle from Spotify that now includes Hulu and Showtime. Spotify first teamed up with Hulu late last year to offer a similar service, but Showtime is a new addition that doesn't add anything to the price. That's a great combo of programs, especially if you don't have cable but do have access to some high-speed Internet. You will need to prove you're attending a Title IV accredited institution to get the deal, so no fooling the system.
The bundle includes a subscription to Spotify Premium, Hulu with Limited Commercials, and Showtime streaming services. The Hulu subscription is regularly $7.99 a month by itself. Spotify Premium is $9.99 and Showtime is $10.99 a month when purchased directly. There are lots of ways to get discounts on all of these services, but getting all three together for $4.99 is nuts.
The original plan combining a subscription to Spotify and Hulu eventually became available to everyone for $12.99, which was still a savings of $5 a month over having both plans individually. Spotify might do the same for this expanded plan eventually. We'll definitely be keeping an eye out for that.
That $4.99 a month for students is right in line with other streaming services. Both Amazon Music Unlimited and Apple Music have plans at the same price point for students, but neither of those plans include a video service just yet.
The even crazier part is if you sign up for Spotify's bundle you'll get the first three months for 99 cents, saving you even more money over time. Plus, if you're already subscribed to Hulu or Showtime you can still get this deal. You'll just have to change some billing info around.
