Apple is reportedly planning to offer a bundle of Apple TV +, Showtime, and CBS All Access through its Apple TV Channels platform. This comes after a report earlier today indicated that Apple will launch its own service pack like Apple TV +, Apple Music and Apple Arcade later this year.
Bloomberg reports that the new bundle with Apple TV +, Showtime and CBS All Access could be available as early as Monday, August 17. Apple’s goal is to drive more adoption of the Apple TV Channels platform.
Apple TV channels are streaming services that you can buy and stream directly in the TV app. For example, you can subscribe to Screen Time through an Apple TV Channel. If you do, all payments are processed through Apple itself and the video is hosted by Apple. This means you watch live in the TV app on your iPhone, iPad, Mac, or Apple TV.
In the case of this plan, subscribers will be able to access Apple TV +, Showtime, and CBS All Access directly through the TV app for a $ 9.99 subscription per month. Separately, Apple TV + costs $ 5 per month while Showtime costs $ 10.99 per month, and Unlimited CBS costs $ 9.99 per month.
Starting Monday, Apple TV + subscribers will be able to access both CBS and Showtime channels in the Apple TV app for $ 9.99 per month combined. CBS All Access and Showtime typically cost $ 9.99 and $ 10.99 per month respectively, so the deal would be a significant savings.
Apple TV + launched last year, and Apple has tried to drive adoption by offering a free year of service when purchasing a hardware product like an Apple TV, iPhone, iPad, or Mac. The first one-year free trials will start to expire in November, so this new bundle with Showtime and Unlimited CBS could convince more users to continue signing up after the free trial period expires. fees.
