A new streaming service will soon make its way into many homes. ViacomCBS will be launching Paramount Plus, and many users are looking forward to what they can discover with the new entry in the seemingly saturated streaming market.
Paramount Plus is the product of CBS All Access rebranding. ViacomCBS will be replacing CBS All Access with Paramount+ since it wants to use and capitalize on the classic feel of the word paramount to its streaming service. Paramount is synonymous to classic films we used to love. Paramount Plus will also include more titles coming from various studios under ViacomCBS.
If you are curious about the details, continue reading below to find out everything you need to know about Paramount Plus including pricing, release schedule and TV series or movies to stream.
Paramount Plus Pricing
First, let’s talk about the pricing overhead of having a Paramount Plus plan. As it is a replacement to CBS All Access, some users think Paramount Plus will cost higher. Fortunately, ViacomCBS offers a reasonable rate for its subscription package.
The basic plan for Paramount Plus with ads is $4.99 per month. However, the contents will not include TV channels. If you want to stream live sports, other TV channels, and add news to your Paramount Plus subscription, choose a higher tier plan priced at $9.99 per month.
