[Hulu] Spotify Family Plan with Hulu

Extend the Student Discount Hulu Subscription to the Family Plan. 

Updated on 2021-06-24

Hey everyone,


Thanks for coming to the Spotify Idea Exchange. 


We appreciate all the feedback you've given us around adding Hulu to Premium Family. We always look for ways to bring better service and deals to you, however, as it is stated in our guidelines, we cannot influence subscription, price or product changes at this point. It's for those reasons that we're marking this as 'Case Closed'. Of course should this change in the future, we will let you all know via our For the Record blog.


Thank you for your understanding!


I'm sure this has to do with the licensing agreement between Spotify and Hulu.  The bundle links each Hulu account to 1 premium Spotify membership.  If they allowed the bundle on the Family plan, each user would get Hulu access for free which amounts up to a $30 value add if you have the max 5 family members.  All for $15 /month. 


I don't think it's as simple as saying "all linked accounts get 1 Hulu login".  


When you think about it, you're actually the lowest paying customer.  $14.99 for six accounts, as opposed to $4.99 for one. 


I’m not sure about other Spotify users, but for me I’ve only got two people on the family plan, myself and my sister since it’s cheaper that way. So it still is kind of annoying that the family plan doesn’t get included in the promotions that Spotify has going on. 


I’ve had Spotify Premium for years, before Premium + Hulu rolled out! I went to upgrade to Premium Family, so my wife and son can enjoy the Premium features too but lost Hulu. I tried to go back to Premium thinking it would automatically revert back to Premium + Hulu. Nope!! Lost it completely. Spotify Chat couldn’t help either and referred me here. 


I think if you were “grandfathered” in to the Hulu feature and you UPGRADE(pay more) to Premium Family, Hulu should come with it. It should be Premium Family + Hulu when you upgrade.


No such luck. Spotify doesn't seem to be caring much about this issue. 


This would be a wonderful idea to attach hulu to family plan. Please consider this, I would definitely upgrade for this. I'm sure many others would, too! Looks like there's over 1700 votes for this?

To everyone. I actually found it a bit strange that it seems that a Spotify employee told someone to comment to this string of comments. I am just like everyone else, a disappointed Spotify family user that is frustrated that Spotify refuses to support or address the comments you see.

Spotify may have a good music service, but I am unaware if they have any customer service.
But how many people really have six accounts? I bet the average is like 2.5.

It’s actually $9.99 for one NOT $4.99 (not everyone is a student)


I was referencing the student deal.
