Verizon is making efforts to compete with T-Mobile's streaming offers by providing a discounted streaming bundle that can lead to significant savings. While it may not be as enticing as previous offers that included free access to Netflix or Disney+, Verizon's latest deal can still result in substantial long-term discounts.
To take advantage of the offer, customers must subscribe to both Netflix Premium and Paramount+ Premium with Showtime. Currently, Verizon, the leading wireless service provider in the US, offers the combined subscription at a monthly cost of $25.99.
Although this may not be the most affordable video streaming bundle available, Verizon claims that customers can save $70 annually with its +play promotion compared to separate subscriptions for the two "premium" services.
For those unfamiliar with +play, it is Verizon's platform that serves as a hub for various streaming services, including Netflix, Paramount+, Max, AMC+, Starz, and others that cover a range of interests such as education, lifestyle, and fitness.
Previously, Verizon offered its customers a free year of Netflix through +play on multiple occasions. Now, in order to access the discounted streaming combo at $26 per month, customers must subscribe to +play.
It's important to note that this promotion is available to new subscribers of the Paramount+ Premium with Showtime tier, while both new and existing Netflix Premium users can take advantage of the deal for a limited time.
Verizon's offer is particularly appealing considering the widespread usage of Netflix and the relatively lesser-known popularity of Paramount+. This presents an excellent opportunity for many people to gain affordable access to shows like 1923, Tulsa King, or Mayor of Kingstown, which are exclusive to Paramount+.
By offering discounted subscriptions to popular streaming services, Verizon aims to provide its customers with added value and a more competitive streaming experience in line with T-Mobile's offerings.
