Spotify has a big trick up its sleeve to lure in Premium subscribers - and that's thousands of TV shows and movies on Hulu.

Spotify on Tuesday announced that all premium subscribers in the U.S. - those who pay $9.99 per month for its service - are eligible to receive Hulu's ad-supported tier free of charge. And if you already have Hulu, you can still qualify through a few simple steps.

New Spotify Premium subscribers, meanwhile, are also eligible. You'll need to switch to Spotify to enjoy the discounted rate if you are now billed by Hulu. Hulu recently lowered the price of this plan to $5.99 a month (from $7.99), but now Spotify Premium subscribers can get it for free. If you're still paying last year's bundle price, you'll be automatically migrated to the new $10 deal.

Do you have Spotify Premium and the basic ad-supported tier of Hulu? Find out how to sign up for the Spotify/Hulu bundle, here. Existing bundlers will see a $3 dollar lower bill during the time of the promotion. If they've not already created a Hulu account, they'll be prompted to do so. Go to Spotify.com/hulu, where you will have the option to get your first 30 days free. Hulu did add the typical "or while supplies last" so don't wait.

The deal is available to new and existing Spotify subscribers.

Unfortunately, the Spotify Hulu bundle is strictly for solo Hulu Premium plans. Hulu also has exclusive USA streaming rights to all seasons of TV series including "ER", "Lost", "King of the Hill", "30 Rock", "Family Guy", "Seinfeld", "South Park" and "Curious George".

How does this bundle compare to the Spotify Student Bundle? Even if you could just cancel the family plan and move everyone over to individual Spotify Premium accounts, you'd be spending much more money each month. Will you sign up?
