[Hulu] Spotify Family Plan with Hulu

Extend the Student Discount Hulu Subscription to the Family Plan. 

Updated on 2018-09-28

Hey folks,


Spotify staff here.


We wanted to post an update as this idea has reached over 500 votes from our users.

We’re always working on improving the Spotify experience across platforms, but we’re afraid we don’t have any further information to share at the moment.

Thanks for continuing to share your ideas and give us feedback in our Idea Exchange.


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.

This is absolutely ridiculous. As a college student, I could not afford even the student version, but now that I'm graduated and working full time (under crushing student debt still) I thought I'd splurge and buy Premium family for my husband and I, PRIMARILY for the benefit of having Hulu. I am paying 3x more than I would have as a student, and receiving arguably 1/10th the benefit. Please explain to me why this is. I'd love contact information for the team responsible for this ludicrous set up. Be careful Spotify, in an app heavy world with endless competitors, irrelevance is only one bad decision away. 

Your comments are 99 to 100% in agreement with all those frustrated like we all seem to be. The problem is Spotify has never commented or even acknowledged the existence of this being an issue. It again only shows the poor customer service focus Spotify has decided is relight for them. Which is none to date.

I was just getting ready to pull the trigger on a Family Account. Glad I read this first. Won't consider the upgrade now until the Hulu package is available with the Family Plan


Literally the dumbest thing ever. Myself and all of these other people would be willing to give you more money for family but I'll just keep it to the regular premium plan so I can have free Hulu. 

I am afraid that all of us have been beating the Spotify horse on this issue for a very long time without any response at all. I think we can all now agree the Spotify horse is dead to customer communication. Sorry that was this thread has brought nothing to any of us except disappointment.

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.
