Spotify and Hulu have linked up once again, this time offering customers in the USA the chance to pay a single monthly subscription to enjoy both services.

Meanwhile, Spotify this week launched a new Premium subscription plan that includes Hulu for $12.99 a month.

"With the updated service, free mobile listeners will be able to access playlists more quickly and have more control over what songs they hear on top playlists, mimicking Spotify's ad-free subscription product", the report notes. Spotify Premium, now with Hulu will be available to everyone this summer.

Previously, a similar deal was only available to college students.

Loudr will contribute to Spotify's "continued effort towards a more transparent and efficient music publishing industry for songwriters and rights holders", Spotify said on its website. Hulu is the only streaming service that offers both ad-supported and commercial-free current season shows from the largest USA broadcast networks; libraries of hit TV series and films; and acclaimed Hulu Originals including Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning series The Handmaids Tale, The Looming Tower, Future Man, Marvels Runaways, 11.22.63, The Path, Casual, as well as upcoming series Castle Rock and The First. For Hulu, the deal could also compel some subscribers to upgrade their service level. Consumers overwhelmingly say that content diversity is an important aspect of SVOD services. Unlike many of its rivals, Spotify lets users access much of the service without paying a cent, as long as they're willing to put up with the occasional advertisement.

If you're someone that has a PS4 and now subscribes to Sony's premium online service PlayStation Plus, then for a limited time you can get a discount on your Spotify subscription by purchasing it through your console.
