It is an over-the-top streaming service owned by ViacomCBS. Paramount plus is currently available in 3 languages (English, Spanish and Portuguese) as of the time of this writing. Paramount plus was recently launched on March 4, 2021, and currently has around subscribers as of November 5, 2020.

Prior to the launching of paramount plus, CBS All Access announced that they were planning on performing more international expansions under the name (Paramount plus) in 2021. They also announced that several new series will be included in the new service such as the true-crime series, the Real Criminal Minds, The Game, MTV’s Behind the Music – The Top 40, The Offer, and even a revival of BET series The Game. Sadly though with Apple’s second and third-generation fading out, the company won’t be offering updates for users of these Apple products.

With Paramount plus, you stand to enjoy theatrical releases from paramount pictures such as Mission: Impossible 7, A Quiet Place part II and even Paw Patrol: The Movie, all with a span of 45 days after their theatrical release while future releases from paramount would premiere on the service after their theatrical run or after their run on Epix.

Paramount plus plans to have a library of over 2,500 movies and 30,000 episodes added with the debut of 36 original series this year. In all paramount plus is out to tell us, they mean business and that they will be coming out strong. Among the originals, expect to find the revival of Frasier, The 1990s sitcom, and also a new studio dedicated to Avatar: The Last Airbender concept.

Subscription Plans and Prices Available For Paramount plus

Presently, paramount plus has two subscription plans you can pick from; The Limited Commercials and The Commercial Free Plan. With Paramount plus you are at liberty to change your plan at any time.

N/B: if you are on a free trial prior to your subscription, you’ll have to forfeit the remainder of your trial, the same thing also happens with coupon redemption. So if you intend on enjoying your free trial, then you’d better hold on before opting for a subscription plan of your choice. Now we’ll go into detail and discuss the pricing and what both plans have to offer.

The Limited Commercial Plan

With the limited commercial plan, you can stream over 30,000 episodes including movies, sports, originals, and news with limited commercial intrusions.

With the limited commercial plan, you pay $5.99 per month which comes together with a 1-week free trial, or better still, you can opt for the $59.99 per year. This yearly plan also comes with a 1-week free trial and saves you over 15% of the total cost you were to pay for it monthly.

Although this plan is a limited offer as the company intends to introduce a price for this plan later this year. The new price for the plan would be $4.99 per month making it cheaper than its initial cost. The only difference between the price deduction and the initial price would be that you’ll no longer have access to your live CBS station.

Pending on when it will be introduced, note that the plan will not affect current subscribers as they will continue to enjoy the services, the $5.99 pay has to offer unless they cancel and resubscribe after this plan has been introduced. When that time comes you’ll be faced with the choice of choosing between the $4.99 or the $5.99 limited commercial plan.

The Commercial Free Plan

With this plan, you can stream all the contents available for the limited commercial plan but unlike the limited commercial plan that comes with commercial interruptions, this plan is commercial-free. Added to that, with the commercial-free plan you’d be able to download shows and movies to watch offline.

The commercial-free subscription goes for $9.99 per month together with a 1-week free trial while the yearly plan goes for $99.99 with a 1-week free trial and also saves you 15% of the amount it would have been if it was paid for monthly.
