Paramount+

Paramount+ has become the latest streaming service to launch, going live on Thursday.  It offers a host of content from ViacomCBS connected brands.

Paramount+ Available Now

The service is currently available in the U.S., 18 Latin American countries, and Canada. It will become available in the Nordics on March 25, and Australia later this year as 10 All Access rebrands.

The premium tier of Paramount+ costs US$9.99 per month and is what became available today. This includes NFL games, soccer, and other sports, as well as breaking news through CBSN and the CBS’ live linear feed. It is commercial-free and includes the Paramount+ originals alongside the full library of content. It offers 4K, HDR, and Dolby Vision quality, and mobile downloads.

Until June, there will also a US$5.99 ad-supported version available to new subscribers. Then, from  June, Paramount+ will introduce a $4.99 ad-supported tier. This will include live NFL games, news, and entertainment but will not offer feeds from local live CBS stations. The $5.99 will not be available to new sign-ups from that point.

What’s on the Latest Streaming Service

In total, there are 30,000 episodes plus films from ViacomCBS-owned brands and production studios such as BET, CBS, Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon, Paramount Pictures, and the Smithsonian Channel available on Paramount+. Users can signup online, and the mobile app is available in the iOS App Store.

As is the case with rivals such as Apple TV+, Paramount+ offers original content too. This includes The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run, Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years, Oscar-shortlisted documentary 76 Days, and The Real World Homecoming: New York. There is also 60 Minutes+ spinoff of the news show.

Unlike Apple TV+, there will also be live sports on the service. For example, It will show every UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League match, including the UEFA Champions League Final on May 29. It will also broadcast the 2021 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship and golf’s The Masters.

In the U.S., this is simply a rebranding of CBS All Access to Paramount +.

Yes, and we found out that here in Canada it won’t make the slightest difference. Only the name is changing.
