Comcast has a Netflix, Peacock, and Apple TV Plus bundle coming next month


Yet another streaming service bundle is on the horizon, this time courtesy of Comcast. Variety reports that the telecommunications giant is planning to launch a three-way bundle for Peacock, Netflix, and Apple TV Plus later this month, which will be available to Comcast broadband and TV customers at a discounted rate compared to subscribing to each service separately.

Speaking at an industry conference on Tuesday, Comcast CEO Brian Roberts said the new “StreamSaver” package will “come at a vastly reduced price to anything in the market today.” The price of the bundle hasn’t been revealed yet, nor has the type of subscription tier — ad-free or ad-supported — users can expect. The deal will likely be competitive regardless, as Roberts says the goal for StreamSaver isn’t just to tempt consumers with a better value deal, but also to “take some of the dollars out of” rival offerings.

The lowest monthly price for all three individual services is currently $22.97, which includes Netflix Basic with ads ($6.99 per month); Peacock’s deceptively named Premium tier which includes ads and current costs $5.99 per month; and the standard $9.99 Apple TV Plus plan. 

Disclosure: Comcast is an investor in Vox Media, The Verge’s parent company.
