Comcast Corp CMCSA announced it will introduce a new streaming bundle called StreamSaver, which includes Apple Inc AAPL Apple TV+, Netflix Inc NFLX, and its own Peacock service.

This strategy comes as Comcast, under the Xfinity brand, continues to lose pay-TV subscribers to streaming services despite having nearly 32 million customers, including 13.6 million video subscribers.

In April, Comcast reported first-quarter revenue growth of 1.2% year-over-year to $30.06 billion, which beat the analyst consensus estimate of $29.81 billion. EPS of $1.04 beat the analyst consensus estimate of $0.99. Peacock paid subscribers increased 55% Y/Y to 34 million.

Analysts do not see Comcast’s market valuation adequately reflecting its growth potential.

Comcast stock lost close to 1% in the last 12 months. Investors can gain exposure to the stock via Invesco BuyBack Achievers ETF PKW and Vanguard Communication Services ETF VOX.

Price Action: CMCSA shares traded higher by 0.30% at $39.82 at the last check Tuesday.
