Another big streaming merger might be on the horizon, this time between Paramount Plus and Comcast's Peacock.

According to a February 16 Wall Street Journal report citing people familiar with the situation, Paramount Global and Comcast have been in talks to discuss streaming options, including the possibility of combining their respective services. A possible combination of these services could look a bit like SkyShowtime, a streaming service that includes services like Peacock, Showtime, Paramount Plus and Nickelodeon and is currently offered in 22 markets in Europe.
