Students can subscribe to Spotify and Hulu for $5 per month

That's a discount of $13: typically, Hulu charges $8 per month for its streaming package that includes some advertising, and Spotify charges $10 per month for its advertising-free Premium plan.

Existing users of Spotify's student plan or subscribers to Hulu can merge their existing plan with this bundle.

The companies said they plan to offer bundles aimed at the broader market in the future.

The new service will be dubbed, "Spotify Premium for Students, now with Hulu".

Spotify and Hulu are teaming up to combine both of their streaming services into a single education bundle for only $4.99 per month.

Spotify is hoping a free Hulu subscription will be enough to tip the scales against Apple Music for any incoming freshman looking to become a first-time subscriber.

North Korea fires missile over Japan in longest-ever test
Security Council on August 30, held one day after North Korean communist dictator Kim Jong Un fired a rocket over Japan. The U.N. security council has denounced Pyongyang's latest tests and called for an end to its missile program.

"We're very excited to be partnering with Hulu - a like-minded company which is as focused as we are on delivering the very best in high-quality streaming content", said Alex Norstrom, chief premium business officer at Spotify.

Hulu and Spotify are two leaders of a new class of entertainment company offering songs and TV shows on-demand for a monthly fee over the internet. Existing Premium for Student members should go to their accounts to switch plans.

The offer is available to students at recognised universities in the US. If you want to see if you're eligible, you can visit Spotify Premium for Students' webpage.

Spotify says that it verifies a student's enrollment status through the third-part service called SheerID.

The move is just the latest streaming partnership announced this week.

When a student graduates or leaves school, they'll still get Premium for Students "until it's 12 months after the date they first subscribed or last reactivated".
