Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Paramount Global (PARA) are reportedly in early discussions to bundle their streaming services at a discounted rate, the WSJ reported today.

The potential combination would involve Paramount+'s content and Apple TV+, offering a more cost-effective solution compared to subscribing to each service individually.

Entertainment giants are increasingly exploring such partnerships to enhance affordability and appeal amid competitive pressures. Rising subscription prices have led to heightened customer churn, prompting companies to seek ways to retain subscribers.

Bundling services reduces the likelihood of cancellations, providing a strategic approach to combatting the trend of viewers unsubscribing after completing specific content.

The report comes after NBCUniversal’s Peacock teamed up with the grocery-delivery service Instacart to offer Peacock with ads access to Instacart+ subscribers without additional charges.

Comment Guidelines

We encourage you to use comments to engage with users, share your perspective and ask questions of authors and each other. However, in order to maintain the high level of discourse we’ve all come to value and expect, please keep the following criteria in mind: 

  • Enrich the conversation
  • Stay focused and on track. Only post material that’s relevant to the topic being discussed.
  • Be respectful. Even negative opinions can be framed positively and diplomatically.
  •  Use standard writing style. Include punctuation and upper and lower cases.
  • NOTE: Spam and/or promotional messages and links within a comment will be removed
  • Avoid profanity, slander or personal attacks directed at an author or another user.
  • Don’t Monopolize the Conversation. We appreciate passion and conviction, but we also believe strongly in giving everyone a chance to air their thoughts. Therefore, in addition to civil interaction, we expect commenters to offer their opinions succinctly and thoughtfully, but not so repeatedly that others are annoyed or offended. If we receive complaints about individuals who take over a thread or forum, we reserve the right to ban them from the site, without recourse.
  • Only English comments will be allowed.

Perpetrators of spam or abuse will be deleted from the site and prohibited from future registration at Investing.com’s discretion.
