Spotify to make its free service even better

"Hulu's TV content is highly acclaimed, and with this exclusive Spotify offer we are bundling two top media platforms for an unbeatable price".

According to insider sources speaking with Bloomberg, Spotify's free-tier update will focus on giving mobile users more control over song selection.

The free service has always been a way to nudge users of the service into the paid side of the operation (Spotify's cheapest paid plan right now is $9.99). And even though Hulu is one of biggest streaming video services in the USA, it still has just a third as many subscribers as Netflix's USA member base.

You won't be able to watch Hulu videos in Spotify or stream music in Hulu.

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

Hulu's Limited Commercials plan retails for $7.99 on its own, which is certainly a steal when factoring in a Spotify Premium subscription as well.

If you're new to Hulu or canceled your account more than a year ago, you can add a three-month Hulu trial to your Spotify account for $1 a month before upgrading to the regularly priced bundle. That's a savings of $4.99 per month if you already pay for both services separately.

Existing Spotify Premium subscribers interested in the new bundle can simply upgrade their existing Premium plan to Spotify Premium, Now With Hulu.

Streaming services like Hulu fight for their portion of the subscriber dollar. Hulu reports in a news release that the subscription offer will be available to all starting this summer.

This isn't the first time Hulu and Spotify have worked together on a joint plan.

Spotify said the student offer was "incredibly well received".
