Enjoying your favorite streaming services like Netflix and Apple TV+ is about to get a lot cheaper

Comcast is about to fix one of the most annoying aspects of subscribing to multiple streaming providers -- well, for some people, that is.

Following the announcement last week that a combined Disney+, Hulu, and Max streaming bundle will launch later this summer, Comcast is likewise prepping a three-way streaming package to offer its broadband, TV, and mobile customers. This new "StreamSaver" bundle will Netflix, Peacock, and Apple TV+, with Comcast CEO Brian Roberts promising today to offer the streamers at a discount during remarks at MoffettNathanson’s 2024 Media, Internet and Communications Conference in New York.

"This will be a pretty compelling package," Roberts told attendees, and that's because he promised that the bundle will come "at a vastly reduced price to anything available today." That suggests the price will probably be less than $24 for all three, given that the cheapest way to enjoy each of them right now is by paying $7.99/month for ad-supported Peacock Premium starting in July; $6.99/month for Netflix Basic with ads, and $9.99/month for the standard Apple TV+ plan.

Get ready for the offer to launch later this month, and at a time when Comcast's own Peacock streamer continues to add so many subscribers at a rapid clip that it's become the fastest-growing streamer in the US. It offers subscribers everything from live sports to reality TV from channels like Bravo as well as a growing lineup of critically acclaimed original series like Poker Face.

Apple TV+, meanwhile, arguably has a strong hit-to-miss ratio and offers what I'd argue is a stronger slate of original content thanks to series like Silo, Foundation, Acapulco, Slow Horses, Tehran, and Ted Lasso. But neither Peacock nor Apple TV+, of course, are Netflix, which remains the biggest and most important streamer of them all and the #1 must-have option for most consumers -- so much so that it tends to relegate all of the other options as add-ons, assuming someone can afford them.
