Save Big on Streaming With These New Partnerships

Netflix on usForget DVRs or MP3 — these days, it’s all about streaming. From channels like HBO to companies like Amazon, there are now dozens of streaming services for movies, television, music, and more. Unfortunately, adding all of these services up can get expensive quickly. That’s why you’ll want to know about two big deals that have just been announced and could save you a bundle on streaming entertainment.

First up, T-Mobile has unveiled a partnership with Netflix. Starting Tuesday, September 12th those with T-Mobile ONE family plans — meaning two or more T-Mobile ONE lines in good standing — will be eligible for a free Netflix subscription. The self-described “uncarrier” is dubbing this latest promotion “Netflix On Us” for obvious reasons as they will cover your standard Netflix $9.99 subscription. However, if you elect to upgrade to the $11.99 Ultra HD  Netflix plan, T-Mobile will just bill you for the leftover $2 a month.  Plus, if you’re already a Netflix subscriber, fear note: T-Mobile says it will still cover your subscription going forward. Eligible T-Mobile ONE users can activate their Netflix subscriptions online, in-store, or by calling T-Mobile’s customer care starting September 12th.

Meanwhile, two other streaming services are teaming up to offer students one sweet deal. The music platform Spotify and television hub Hulu have unveiled the new Spotify Premium for Students, now with Hulu plan, entitling customers to use both services for just $4.99 a month. Considering, as Variety notes, that Spotify Premium is normally $9.99 a month on its own and that Hulu’s “limited commercial” plan goes for $7.99, this really is a considerable discount. Of course, if you aren’t a student this may be a bit of a bummer. But, Variety reports that Hulu and Spotify teased they’re working together on “offerings targeted at the broader market” soon, so keep your eyes peeled.

With so many streaming services out there these days, cutting the cord and ditching cable could actually cost you more in the long run. Luckily, if this week is anything to judge by, there are a growing number of ways for consumers to get great discounts on these entertainment platforms thanks to some emerging partnerships. Let’s hope we see some more of these types of deals real soon!
