Paramount+ is replacing CBS All Access, which means that you do not need to unsubscribe on your existing CBS All Access plan and subscribe to Paramount Plus. The transition process is easy and automatic with you doing nothing at all but enjoy all the new binge-worthy content.

What you need to do is wait for CBS All Access to change to Paramount Plus automatically on March 4, 2021. Roku automatically updates its apps once available without disrupting the streaming experience of its users. But, if you need to update the app manually, you can do so using these steps:

What Happens If I Have an Existing Cable Account?

You can use your cable subscription to sign up for free on Paramount Plus. However, keep in mind that it will also limit your access to all contents. You can only watch the live stream of your local CBS affiliate and not the on-demand titles, Paramount movies, new exclusives, and ViacomCBS content.

  1. I am EXTREMELY aggravated right now. This is the first I’ve heard of this and now I can’t watch anything. I tried the system update mentioned above and it did nothing. I am very computer literate and have spent the last hour trying to sign on. This was handled VERY poorly!
