What is Paramount Plus?

Paramount Plus isn’t a TV channel. It’s a direct-to-customer streaming service from ViacomCBS, a media company whose brands include CBS, CBS News, CBS Sports, BET, Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon, Paramount Pictures, Showtime and the Smithsonian Channel. The service draws from that extensive library, and lets subscribers stream more than 30,000 episodes and movies.

When is Paramount Plus launched?

It's here! Paramount Plus launched in the US on March 4, 2021, along with parts of Latin America. The Nordics will receive the streaming service on March 25, while Paramount Plus lands in Australia at some point in mid-2021. On March 4, the CBS All Access service in Canada will also switch names to Paramount Plus, while "an expanded offering will be available later in the year" in that region.

Additional markets will follow, apparently. It's unclear if the service will launch in the UK.

Paramount Plus: Free Trial and Price

Yes. Paramount Plus has a 30-day free trial – this is available until March 31, according to the website. That should be more than enough time to catch up on the Star Trek series you might've missed out on...

At launch, the Paramount Plus premium plan, with no ads, costs $9.99 per month. In June, that will expand to a limited plan that includes intermittent ads, and will cost $4.99 per month. If you’re already subscribing to CBS All Access (plans there have been priced at $5.99 with ads, and $9.99 for the commercial-free option), you’ll be automatically transferred to Paramount Plus on Thursday, March 4.

Paramount Plus Apps Available on Which Devices?
