A release from Comcast shares more about what we can expect from the Peacock, Netflix and Apple TV+ bundle titled StreamSaver. Dave Watson, CEO of Connectivity and Platforms, Comcast shares, “StreamSaver is a homerun for consumers who want top-tier entertainment and live sports, and for our world-class partners Peacock, Netflix and Apple who benefit from the reach and depth of our entertainment platforms and Xfinity’s marketing engine.

Comcast CEO Brian Roberts also previously shared, “Those three products will come at a vastly reduced price to anything in the market today and will be available to all our customers.” That is, this new Peacock, Netflix, and Apple TV+ streaming bundle will become available to all Comcast broadband, TV, and mobile subscribers. And now we have more details about what exactly the Peacock, Netflix and Apple TV+ bundle will cost.

The price point for StreamSaver has now been revealed. The Peacock, Netflix and Apple TV+ bundle will cost $15/month. Of course, to get the bundle subscribers must already be Xfinity Internet or TV customers. The release further shares that StreamSaver “includes a subscription to Netflix Standard with ads, Peacock Premium, and Apple TV+, delivering a savings of over 30% or nearly $100 a year.”

Additionally, the release notes, “Current and new Xfinity Internet or TV customers can add Xfinity StreamSaver for an everyday price of $15 per month, with no annual contracts. Customers can also combine the bundled apps with NOW TV for one all-in-monthly price of $30. Together, the NOW StreamSaver bundles represents the best value in live TV and entertainment.”

StreamSaver apps will be available on Apple TV and other connected TVs and devices.

When Will StreamSaver Release?

According to Comcast, “StreamSaver will launch next week to Xfinity customers nationwide.” That’s not an exact date, but it sure is coming soon.

What Do the Peacock, Netflix, Apple TV+ and the Disney+, Hulu, and Max Streaming Bundles Mean for Consumers?

With the two big-name bundles juxtaposed against one another, it feels like streaming has come back to exactly the place it started from. Whether consumers will ultimately benefit or hurt from this, we don’t yet know. But we can only cross our fingers that streaming bundles at least improve the current situation.

Recent comments from Warner Bros. Discovery indicated it did not feel it needed any other streamers in its Hulu, Disney+, Max bundle. We suppose that’s why Netflix, Apple TV+, and Peacock felt they needed to make their own package. But can these streamers also bundle with one another in new bundles? We guess only time will tell.

Ultimately, we can’t wait to see what the logo for StreamSaver will be and how it will combine element of Peacock, Netflix, and Apple TV+.
