Hot on the heels of new rumors over Apple’s own upcoming bundles of apps, Apple TV + can prepare for the launch of a discount package for some very good third-party streaming services: Showtime and CBS All Access.

Citing sources familiar with the matter, Bloomberg announced Thursday that Apple TV + could debut on Monday at a wild discount package sale on the duo of premium streaming properties owned by ViacomCBS. According to the report, the price for these services – which cost $ 11 and $ 6 per month respectively – could be obtained through Apple’s TV app for $ 10 per month, so less than the cost of Showtime alone. Bloomberg noted that users should have an active Apple TV + account, though, which costs an additional $ 5 per month.

A ViacomCBS spokesman declined to comment. Apple did not immediately return a question about the clutter bundle.

As Bloomberg noted, the discount offered exclusively to subscribers of their streaming service makes sense for a product that, at least for now, has very little of its own content. Until Apple is able to express more content there, it will continue to have difficulty making a case for itself. Although, the true who is who of directors set to debut TV shows and movies for the platform appears sure to change soon.

In the meantime, CBS All Access and Showtime both offer a strong lineup of content—Star Trek: Picard! The Twilight Zone! The Good Fight! —This makes the three services together a little more attractive for $ 15 a month. And hey, you can just cancel later, you know, later.
