One of the main issues in cord cutting today is managing multiple streaming services. With the average streaming service costing between $5 and $10 a month, you can easily subscribe to multiple services and still save money. Amazon was one of the first to address this by offering Amazon Channels. With Amazon Channels you can use your Amazon account to manage multiple subscriptions. That allows you to have a single login and app for multiple services.

Now according to a report from Bloomberg says Walmart is planning to offer a similar service. According to sources, Walmart has reached out to streaming services about creating a partnership to let Walmart sell their services through Walmart. This would allow you to manage the subscriptions through a single app likely to be tied to your Vudu account.

Walmart is not the only company looking to do this. Recently Sling TV started offering this option and Roku is reportedly looking to do the same. For now though they are all trailing behind Amazon Channels in an effort to find an easy way to manage multiple subscriptions.
