You'll see an area where you can activate Hulu's ad-supported plan, and if you are now paying the $12.99 they charged for last year's bundle, it will automatically reduce to $9.99.

Hulu with ads by itself costs $5.99 a month, and the new bundle is available to new and existing Spotify subscribers. If you already subscribe to Spotify, you might as well take advantage of this offer and nab Hulu for free. Add "Hulu" to your services. You'll get your first month of Spotify Premium and Hulu for free; after that, it will cost $9.99 a month.

The two companies teamed up a year ago to offer Spotify Premium and Hulu bundled together for $12.99 monthly.

Anyone who was enrolled in the $12.99 plan will automatically be transferred over into the new $9.99 plan.

The move comes as Spotify has doubled down on its efforts to compete with Apple Music.

Meanwhile, Spotify Premium for students includes Hulu's ad-supported plan plus Showtime for just $4.99 per month.

The deal is available to new and existing Spotify subscribers. Users will be able to sign up through June 10. Now, the music streaming service sweetened the deal even more by no longer charging extra for a Hulu subscription.

Spotify has faced increasing competition from rival music streaming services in recent years.

It compensates artists by paying them royalties based on the number of their streams proportional to the number of total songs streamed overall.

Users can gain access to millions of songs, thousands of podcasts, and a plethora of television with a single subscription. In addition, Hulu earns incremental ad revenue from the entry-level package, and it wants to grow that: The company generated almost $1.5 billion in advertising revenue in 2018, up 45% year over year.
