The Paramount Plus App is officially available for installation on your favorite device.
ViacomCBS announced the new service in January of 2021 with the official launch occurring on March 4, 2021.
This all-new Streaming App is a rebrand of Viacom’s popular CBS All Access application.
However, users will find tons of new content including Paramount Originals, Live News, Sports, and more.
Users will find content from popular networks such as CBS, BET, Comedy Central, Nickelodeon, MTV, and more.
This makes the app a great choice for all ages with Movies and TV Shows for the whole family.
The app will be available for installation on tons of various devices including the Amazon Firestick which is the most popular device available today.
This is likely due to its low price point and sideloading capabilities that will allow you to “jailbreak” your device.
You can learn more about Paramount Plus and its endless possibilities at their official site below:
Similar to Discovery+, Paramount Plus will feature two different price options for purchase.
Users have the option to pay $5/ month for the “Base” tier that will include ads or $10/month for the ad-free option.
CBS All Access customers paid $6/month or $60 annually for the service that included ads or $10 a month/$100 annually without ads.
This is comparable to most streaming services that fall somewhere in the $5-10/month price range.

This means users can skip the trip to the theater and enjoy brand new movies from home using only a Paramount+ subscription.
With over 30,000 episodes, 2500 movies, and much more available in its library, there is no shortage of content available for viewing.
One of Paramount’s greatest features in this new service is the live streaming options you can access from the application.
Because CBS is home to tons of live sports, subscribers will be able to stream the NFL, PGA Tour, NCAA Football & Basketball, and more.
The 24/7 live sports platform CBS Sports will be integrated directly into Paramount+ for non-stop news on all things sports-related.
Viewers will also have access to live news with local CBS affiliates in over 200 markets across the United States.
