If you already have Spotify Premium, you can activate Hulu for no additional cost by signing up here.

Hulu and Spotify offered a similar deal last April and bundled their services for $13 per month. If you're still paying last year's bundle price, you'll be automatically migrated to the new $10 deal.

Here's everything else you need to know about the current promotion:

The basics

Spotify and Hulu have teamed up on a discounted bundle deal. Whether you're brand-new to both, an existing subscriber of one but not the other -- or both already -- you're eligible for the promotion, which includes access to Spotify's ad-free premium service (normally $9.99 per month) and Hulu's ad-supported service (normally $5.99) for a total of $9.99 per month. You can sign up for the specially priced bundle now through June 10.

The caveats

There are a few catches here, mostly for existing Spotify and Hulu subscribers. Current Spotify subscribers who have a "Students Tier" membership or the "Family Plan" -- where up to four members of a household can listen to different songs concurrently -- are not eligible for this promotion. Same goes for Hulu subscribers who have the "No Ads" or "Hulu + Live TV" plans. 

Check out all of the terms and conditions here.

This deal includes Spotify's Premium tier of service, which is ad-free, and Hulu's "ad-supported" plan, which includes ad interruptions. The company says that the number of ads on Hulu is "generally less than half of that of traditional broadcast and cable TV" and that the platform will accommodate your ad preferences

The time frame

You can sign up for the special bundle pricing bundle until June 10.

Seems too good to be true. Why now?

The announcement came one day after Apple revealed that it's having its own event on March 25. That event will reportedly focus on several new Apple services, including a video service with Apple-exclusive content. While Apple's exact plans and pricing aren't known, Spotify and Hulu are no doubt hoping that this music-plus-video offering for $10 per month will be a strong counteroffer to whatever Apple has in the wings.
