Apple reportedly worked out a deal with ViacomCBS that will get Apple TV+ subscribers CBS All Access and Showtime content for less than half price.

A subscription to Showtime costs $10.99 per month, while CBS All Access is $5.99 per month with commercials or $9.99 per month without. But anyone with an Apple TV+ subscription will soon be able to get both for $9.99 per month, according to an unconfirmed report from Reuters.

This would, of course, be on top of the $4.99 per month fee for Apple’s own streaming service. Though anyone who recently bought an an Apple device can enjoy TV+ for a year.

Apple TV+, Showtime, CBS All Access: Three for the price of two

Showtime is one of the premier cable channels, and is making the transition to streaming. It offers first-run movies as well as original series.

CBS All Access has been called the “Star Trek Channel,” as it offers three series based on that long-running franchise. Beyond that, this streaming service has a collection of new and classic shows, and recently added dozens of classic movies to its repertoire.

Apple TV+ offers more than 30 shows or movies available or coming soon. These are all original programs, from the light-hearted fun of Central Park to the Emmy-winning The Morning Show.
