Showtime added to Spotify Premium for Students plan

College classes either have or about to start back up, and Spotify wants to make sure students everywhere are good and distracted. As such, they’ve just upgraded their Spotify Premium for Students plan with Showtime. Subscribers will now have access to thousands of hours of Showtime’s premium entertainment content alongside the Spotify and Hulu content already available in the plan. And because they understand that textbooks and beer are expensive, they’ve kept the subscription price at $4.99/month.

Even better, if you’re a new subscriber to Spotify Premium for Students you can get your first three months of the service for only $0.99/month.

“Spotify Premium has just changed the content game for students,” stated Alex Norström, chief premium officer at Spotify. “By joining forces with Showtime and continuing our relationship with Hulu, Spotify Premium is now able to give students a complete world of music and video content, shows and film. This latest offer for U.S. students—both the millions already on Spotify Premium and those who are new—really is huge. Never before have students had this level of streaming entertainment options, at this unprecedented value, all in one package.”

Indeed, students will get access to Hulu’s library of hit movies and current-run TV shows—including original programs such as The Handmaid’s Tale, The Looming Tower, Marvel’s Runaways and Castle Rock—as well as Showtime’s library of blockbuster movies, political shows and documentaries, sports content and more. And, of course, this is in addition to Spotify’s access to music and podcasts.

On Apple TV, subscribers can still go the respective Hulu and Showtime apps or visit and to access their subscription content. Spotify itself is not available on Apple TV, but students can access that content via their computer or mobile device.
