Spotify and Hulu are today expanding their partnership and offering a bundle of both services to all consumers for $12.99 per month. The basic subscription package costs $9.99 a month.

In September past year, the companies announced that they would offer a bundle of their services to college students in the US for $5 per month.

Spotify and Hulu have partnered to offer a joint subscription to their music and television catalogues, as Spotify looks to keep up momentum a week after its public offering.

On its own, Hulu's Limited Commercials plan is $7.99, so this is a significant savings.

Spotify Premium now costs $9.99 per month, while Hulu charges $7.99 for its Limited Commercials.

It's a nice little bonus for PlayStation gamers - Spotify had initially been a console exclusive for Sony, but with the service now available through Xbox One consoles too, PS Plus subscribers maintain their edge. Now you'll have the option to pay $12.99 per month for both. This Hulu and Spotify bundled offer does offer some value at $13 for both and will be interesting to watch and see if it gains wide appeal, causing digital and legacy competitors alike to respond. With 71 million paying subscribers, Spotify is larger than competitors Apple Music and Tidal. According to unnamed sources with knowledge of the matter, Spotify will soon make its free service easier to navigate, especially on mobile devices.

This isn't the first time Hulu and Spotify have worked together, as they launched a combined subscription for college students in September 2017. App stores can take almost a third of each payment, so this offering will lure some subscribers into Spotify's billing system.

Together, Spotify and Hulu have a "world of ad-free music" and a whopping 75,000 TV shows and movies to put at your streaming disposal on smartphones, tablets, computers, smart TVs and select digital media players.

The companies said they plan to make the offer available to consumers who don't now subscribe to Spotify later this summer.
