Spotify vs. Hulu


Spotify is an app for music streaming that gives access to a variety of songs, music videos, and content from artists around the world. It allows users to listen to millions of songs both for free and premium versions. On the other hand, Hulu is particularly designed as a video streaming service app. It provides a large catalog containing TV seasons, movies, Live TV, anime series. This is usually used by those who want to live to stream their videos or broadcast their TV programs to different platforms.

Hulu became a partner of Spotify that adds video streaming features and functionalities. This partnership was expanded with the creation of the Spotify and Hulu Bundle where you can combine the services of both apps in a single account.
