Whether you’re brand-new to both, an existing subscriber of one but not the other — or both already — you’re eligible for the promotion, which includes access to Spotify’s ad-free premium service (normally $9.99 per month) and Hulu’s ad-supported service (normally $5.99) for a total of $9.99 per month. You can sign up for the specially priced bundle now through June 10. The caveats There are a few catches here, mostly for existing Spotify and Hulu subscribers. Current Spotify subscribers who have a “Students Tier” membership or the “Family Plan” — where up to four members of a household can listen to different songs concurrently — are not eligible for this promotion. Same goes for Hulu subscribers who have the “No Ads” or “Hulu + Live TV” plans. Check out all of the terms and conditions here.This deal includes Spotify’s Premium tier of service, which is ad-free, and Hulu’s “ad-supported” plan, which includes ad interruptions. The company says that the number of ads on Hulu is “generally less than half of that of traditional broadcast and cable TV” and that the platform will accommodate your ad preferences.

That event will reportedly focus on several new Apple services, including a video service with Apple-exclusive content.
