[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!


How is this a solution?

Diversion is the new solution.

No soultion = solution? Still customer opinions are not considered. 


I'm sure this is a licensing agreement, and it makes sense that customers should not be able to get 6 Hulu accounts for $15 through Spotify.


How about adding a Hulu account only to the primary account in a Family? Then it's basically equivalent to the Premium subscription, with $5 extra for 5 linked Spotify family accounts only.


My family is clamoring for Spotify but we watch Blackish and The Masked Singer on Hulu so won't extend.

Similar request but pertaining to Spotify Duo.  I suggest that many more users (couples) would sign up for Duo if there were a Pricing tier above 12.99, for example, ~14.99 that allowed the huge number of us to retain our Hulu/Spotify combo.


I really like the idea of Duo but would never end my current Hulu/Spotify deal of 9.99 in return for less product at a higher cost.  However I'd gladly pay more for an upgraded Duo account if it retained my Hulu basic subscription. 


I guarantee Spotify is losing larger potential Duo subscribers for this exact reason.  Please offer a Duo option with Hulu.  




I've been a long-time Spotify user and even started my student plan in college 10 years ago! There was no Hulu bundle in those days, but since I've been paying for Spotify family for a few years now... It would be great to be offered the bundle! Especailly since I do not get compensated for my monthly payments from family members. I feel I have poured a lot of money into my Spotify account and it would only be fair to offer Hulu with the family plan.


Unfortunately Spotify has shown no interest in what everyone seems to agree is what should be done for family account owners like myself. As a collective group of like minded people stating our cases and asking for a response, we have never had anyone from Spotify comment on our statements.

Again, Spotify continues to show what terrible / non-existent customer service looks like. I am sorry that our comments have been ignored completely.

I was going to upgrade to a Family plan from Premium today, but apparently I'd lose Hulu.  How much money is Spotify missing out on due to this?  We had a separate Pandora account and were going to consolidate, but it makes no sense to pay more for less music access. 

That's the question many ask. Unfortunately, Spotify has never commented on this string. EVER. Their customer service based on all the people that have taken time to write has been consistently non-existent. I am sorry.

Not quite sure why this isn’t a thing yet
