Koodo Stream+ Price to Increase in March, Likely Because of Apple [Update]

koodo stream+ march 2023

Back in July 2022, Koodo launched Stream+, which it called Canada’s first bundle of Netflix Premium, Apple TV+, and discovery+ that was available for existing customers at the price of $25 per month.

Stream+ is only available for mobility customers and the bundle would save 20% on these streaming services.

But last October, Apple increased the price of its services including Apple TV+ by 50%, jumping from $5.99 to $8.99 per month and $59.99 to $89.99 per month.

Many Koodo Stream+ customers wondered if this price jump would affect their bundled plan, and now we’re seeing the effects of that.

According to an email sent from Koodo to Stream+ customers seen by iPhone in Canada, a price increase to Stream+ is coming in March 2023. The email says this “adjustment” reflects a price change of one of the streaming services included in the Stream+ bundle, without mentioning any names (*cough* Apple). This will take Stream+ to $28 per month for Apple TV+, Netflix Premium and discovery+.

The price change to Stream+ comes five months after Apple increased the price of Apple TV+. The Koodo website has yet to reflect the change but it should happen in March.

We’ve reached out to Koodo for comment and will update this story accordingly.

Update Feb. 24, 2023: A Koodo spokesperson sent iPhone in Canada the following statement regarding this price increase:

“Some Stream+ customers are being notified of a $3 increase to their bills beginning in March as a result of a price change to one of the streaming services included in the Stream+ bundle. This increase does not apply to customers receiving select promotional offers and only those notified will be impacted. The Stream+ bundle still offers the best combined rates for access to the leading premium streaming services,” said Koodo’s statement.

The spokesperson added, “TELUS remains the only provider in Canada to include premium streaming services within a mobility plan, meaning customers can get access to Netflix Premium, Apple TV+, discovery+, and TELUS TV+ in one place, at a discount. We remain committed to offering flexible payment terms to any customers who are experiencing financial hardship, and will continue to support them on a case-by-case basis.”
