FAQs about Spotify Student Discount

1. What if you already have a Hulu subscription?

2. What kind of Hulu resources you'll get with this student plan?

With Spotify Premium for Students, you'll have access to the Hulu Limited Commercials plan, which includes streaming of full seasons of exclusive series, hit movies, Hulu Originals and more, on all compatible devices.

You'll continue to get access to Premium for Students with Hulu for up to 12 months from the date you subscribed or last re-verified, while it's available.
