It’s the first third-party bundle available through Apple TV Plus.
Apple TV Plus subscribers can now get a subscription to both CBS All Access and Showtime for $9.99 per month, making it the first video bundle available for subscribers to Apple’s premium streaming service (via 9to5Mac).
The deal could be a nice savings for people who already subscribe to all three services. Apple TV Plus costs $4.99 per month, though anyone who buys a new Apple device gets a free year of the service. And if you buy the other subscriptions on their own, CBS All Access starts at $5.99 per month and offers an ad-free version for $9.99 per month — and that ad-free version is what you get with this bundle. Showtime costs $10.99 per month.
This new bundle means you might be able to get Apple TV Plus, CBS All Access, and Showtime for $14.98 per month — and if you have a free subscription to Apple TV Plus via buying a new Apple device, it will be even cheaper at just $9.99 per month (that is, until that free year of Apple TV Plus runs out).
As services become an increasingly important part of Apple’s revenue, the company reportedly plans to launch new subscription bundles for its own services alongside new iPhones in October. It’s unclear if Apple plans to launch additional bundles with third-party video providers, but today’s news with CBS All Access and Showtime could signal that more of those types of bundles could arrive in the future.
