The new offer from Spotify and Hulu is available to all US college students, and is a new type of a bundle between a music streaming services and one streaming video.

A deal aimed at students could lead to further collaborations between Hulu, which is looking to gain ground on larger rival Netflix, and Spotify, which can use video services to retain customers who might be lured to rival Apple Music.

Spotify has announced that it will be teaming up with Hulu to offer a special premium streaming bundle for college students in the United States.

Achieving that may entail major changes to the company's organizational structure once the new location is operational. And the projected employment of as many as 50,000 is 10 times the number of workers Toyota has at its new campus.

If you're a student that subscribes to either service, it really wouldn't make any sense for you *not* to take advantage of this. The companies said they plan to launch similar offers for the broader market in future.

Students who are feeling the pinch in regards to streaming services are about to get a break thanks to Hulu and Spotify. Usually, Spotify Premium for students alone costs $5 a month, so with this offer the Hulu comes in as a free add-on. Title IV accredited college or university will be eligible. If you're on the Spotify Family plan, say, you'll have to cancel your subscription and switch over to Premium, but you'll retain all your playlists.

The offering is just the first in several planned bundles that Hulu and Spotify are planning to offer.

Assuming you meet all of those requirements, you only need to pay $4.99 per month for access to both Spotify Premium and Hulu's limited commercials tier.

Spotify, which in late July announced that it hit 60 million paid subscribers, stands to see its subscriber count climb even higher as it attempts a direct listing on the New York Stock Exchange before year's end.

Student subscriptions will be billed through Spotify, but Hulu will get a cut of the revenue from the bundles, according to a person familiar with the arrangement.
