This model has worked a charm, helping Spotify become the biggest streaming service in the world, with 157 million users (71 million of who fork out for its premium tier). Hulu, the streaming giant, who is now producing award-winning programming like Handmaid's Tale is teaming up with the streaming music service Spotify and offering a new monthly package for $12.99 a month.

Spotify and Hulu widened a popular bundle Wednesday to all of Spotify's U.S. subscribers.

Starting today, existing Spotify Premium customers can sign up for a three-month Hulu trial for 99 cents (but only if they are new to Hulu).

If you're already a Hulu Limited Commercials subscriber, you can still take advantage of this sweet bargain, as long as you don't have any "premium" add-ons like HBO or Showtime.

Spotify and Hulu partnership permits users to access both services for just $12.99 per month.

Canadian alleged serial killer facing 7th murder charge
The remains of Andrew Kinsman, Soroush Mahmudi and Skandaraj Navaratnam had previously been identified, Idsinga said. The 2016 interaction was the second time police spoke with McArthur in the years before he was charged with murder.

Currently, ad-funded users are at the mercy of Spotify's playlist orders and have limited number of skips when accessing the radio-style service. That's significantly higher than the student deal, which offered the same bundle for the disruptive price of $4.99 per month.

Spotify will be hoping, by loosening restrictions on the Free service, to attract more users from the paid-only Apple Music platform.

Spotify said the student offer was "incredibly well received". "The basic package is $9.99 a month".

The new offer is available initially to existing Spotify Premium subscribers only. Spotify premium costs $9.99 in the USA, but here in SA, it launched at a much more attractive R59.99. "This is just one example of how we can add value to our premium members day after day".
