Hulu is also included in the package.
Spotify continues to bless students with the ultimate entertainment deal. Last year, the streaming service announced that eligible students would be able to get Hulu as a part of the $5 student package. According to Variety, Spotify is now adding Showtime to the deal as well. For just $4.99, students can get Spotify premium, Hulu's limited commercial plan, and Showtime.
“Spotify Premium has just changed the content game for students. By joining forces with Showtime and continuing our relationship with Hulu, Spotify Premium is now able to give students a complete world of music and video content, shows, and film,” stated Spotify chief premium officer Alex Norström. “Never before have students had this level of streaming entertainment options, at this unprecedented value, all in one package.”
Both existing and new Spotify members can get the package, but students who set up a new account get the best deal. New student subscribers will get the Spotify/Hulu/Showtime package for $0.99 for the first 3 months. The streaming service's student package is only available to students who are currently enrolled at a U.S. Title IV accredited college or university. They also must be at least 18 years of age. Subscribers must sign up directly with Spotify, as third-party purchases (through Google Play, for example) will not qualify.
