Paramount Plus is one of the most affordable streaming services available. On June 7, the platform dropped the price of its ad-supported plan from $6/month to $5/month.

The service offers a growing collection of original series and films, like a “SpongeBob Squarepants” movie and spinoff show, several “Star Trek” series, and a reboot of the popular Nickelodeon show iCarly.

Paramount Plus also has live CBS sports, with content for soccer fans like UEFA Champions League, Europa League, and the National Women’s Soccer League.

Access to your local CBS station is also included, but only with the Premium Plan for $10 a month. If you sign up for Paramount Plus now, you can get a seven-day free trial.

Below, we’ve detailed all the ins and outs of Paramount Plus, including pricing, release dates, and what you can expect to watch. For full impressions on the service, check out our Paramount Plus review.

What is Paramount Plus?

Paramount Plus is a subscription streaming service from ViacomCBS. The service replaced the company’s previous platform, CBS All Access, on March 4.

The rebranded service promises an expansion of its predecessor’s on-demand lineup. Paramount Plus plans to add 2,500 movies by the end of summer 2021, according to a press release.

Like its predecessor, Paramount Plus also offers live access to your local CBS network, but this option is only available with the Premium Plan.

Paramount Plus includes programs from CBS, BET, Comedy Central, Nickelodeon, MTV, and The Smithsonian Channel. New and classic movies from Paramount, Miramax, and MGM are included as well. The library also features Paramount Plus originals you won’t find anywhere else.

When does Paramount Plus launch?

Paramount Plus launched in the US, Canada, and Latin America on March 4.

Nordic countries received Paramount Plus on March 25, while Australia and New Zealand are expected to get the streaming service on August 11.

How much does Paramount Plus cost?

Paramount Plus offers two plans: an ad-supported “Essential Plan” for $5 a month ($50 a year) and an ad-free “Premium Plan” for $10 a month ($100 a year). The annual plans end up saving you about 16% compared to the month-to-month options.

Essential Monthly Plan (ad-supported) (small)Premium Monthly Plan (ad-free) (small)

Both plans feature access to the platform’s on-demand library, but the Essential Plan is subject to commercial interruptions when streaming on-demand programs.

The Premium Plan steps things up with ad-free streaming of on-demand content, and it adds live access to your local CBS station. That said, live CBS streaming still features regular commercial breaks.

What happens if I subscribed to the original Limited-Commercial Plan?

The new Paramount Plus Essential Plan is a replacement for the Limited-Commercial Plan. The Limited-Commercial Plan cost $6 a month and was discontinued on June 7.

The new Essential Plan saves subscribers $1 a month but there is one key drawback. The Essential Plan is missing live CBS while the Limited-Commercial Plan included that feature.

Existing subscribers to the discontinued Limited-Commercial Plan will continue to pay the original $6/month rate unless they unsubscribe and resubscribe to Paramount Plus. These members also get to keep access to their live CBS network as long as they don’t cancel their existing subscription.

Does Paramount Plus offer a free trial?

Paramount Plus offers a seven-day free trial for new members.

You can also get 25% off Paramount Plus if you’re a student at a US college or university. This offer is only available for the monthly ad-supported plan. Students are eligible for the discount for a span of four years.

What devices can I use to watch Paramount Plus?

Paramount Plus is compatible with the following devices:

  • iOS
  • Android
  • Chromecast
  • Roku
  • Apple TV
  • Fire TV
  • Portal TV
  • Samsung smart TVs
  • Vizio TVs
  • LG TVs
  • PlayStation 4
  • Xbox One
  • Xbox Series S
  • Xbox Series X
  • Xfinity Flex

Can you stream Paramount Plus in 4K, Dolby Vision, and HDR?

Select Paramount Plus titles are available to watch in 4K, HDR10, HDR10+, and Dolby Vision. These formats are only available to subscribers of the Premium Plan ($10/month), and are not supported on the cheaper Essential Plan ($5/month).

Shows available in these advanced video formats are marked with “badges” on their title pages, while movies that support these formats mention them in their description boxes.

Paramount Plus supports streaming in 4K, Dolby Vision, and HDR10 on the following devices:

  • Select Roku models
  • Amazon Fire TV (Stick 4K, Cube)
  • Select Android TV models
  • Apple TV 4K

How does Paramount Plus compare to CBS All Access?

Paramount Plus is essentially an expansion of CBS All Access.

CBS All Access members that had active subscriptions automatically transitioned over to Paramount Plus on March 4, enabling them to use their same account information. The CBS All Access app automatically switched to Paramount Plus as well. This means you get all the same content that was on CBS All Access, along with brand-new shows and more classic titles.

That said, Paramount Plus introduced a new ad-supported Essential Plan in June, and it does differ slightly from the original CBS All Access Limited-Commercial Plan it replaces. The Essential Plan costs $1 less each month, but it no longer offers live CBS streaming.

New members who want to access live CBS streaming on Paramount Plus need to have the Premium Plan. Those who were still subscribed to the Limited-Commercial Plan when it was discontinued, however, can keep live CBS streaming as long as they don’t cancel their membership.

What can I watch on Paramount Plus?

Paramount Plus offers access to classic and original programs from the likes of Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, BET, MTV, Paramount Pictures, and CBS. The Premium Plan also adds access to your local CBS network.

The service will be home to brand-new movies, including Paramount’s upcoming theatrical releases 30 to 45 days after they debut on the big screen. This means you’ll be able to stream “A Quiet Place II” later this month while it’s still in theaters. “Snake Eyes,” “PAW Patrol: The Movie,” and “Mission: Impossible 7” are other major movies coming to the streaming service in 2021 and 2022.

Older films are also included. The service launched with movies from popular franchises like “Indiana Jones” and “Star Trek.” The streaming service will add more than 2,500 films by the end of summer 2021.

New Paramount Plus originals set for release over the next two years include “Halo,” a show based on the video game series of the same name, and “Y:1883,” a prequel to the popular show “Yellowstone.” If nautical nonsense is something you’re after, a new animated series “Kamp Koral: Spongebob’s Under Years” is available to stream now.

Originals that initially premiered on CBS All Access also remain available, including “Star Trek: Discovery,” “Star Trek: Picard,” “The Twilight Zone,” and “The Stand.”

Amazon Prime subscribers can get access to more movies and shows through Prime Video Channels.

Prime Video Channels bring extra content to your existing Prime Video membership from many popular networks and services, including premium platforms like HBO and Showtime. Live TV channels are even included in some instances.

Below, we’ve broken everything you need to know about Prime Video Channels, including prices, popular services, free options, and more.

What are Amazon Prime Video Channels?

Prime Video Channels are monthly subscriptions that you can add to your Amazon Prime or Prime Video membership. For an extra monthly fee, you’ll get access to content from premium third-party networks and other streaming entertainment channels without leaving your Prime Video account.

Some subscriptions also offer a “Watch Live” feature, which gives you the option to live-stream programming on supported devices at the same time that it’s being broadcast on TV.

To add Prime Video channels you first need a Prime Video membership. Prime Video alone costs $9 a month. If you want all the perks of an Amazon Prime membership, such as free shipping on tons of items, you can get a full Amazon Prime subscription for $13 a month or $119 a year. All Amazon Prime memberships include access to Prime Video.

Once you sign up for Prime Video, you can start adding extra Prime Video channels to your subscription.

How many channels are there?

You can find all the Prime Video channels here. At a glance, the complete lineup looks to include over 150 channels – from HBO and Starz to Shudder and BritBox.

What are some of the most popular channels available?

Some of the most popular Prime Video Channels include several premium networks and services, like HBO Max and Showtime. Most channels include free trial periods so you can test them before paying.

Here’s a rundown of pricing and free trial periods for several popular Prime Video Channel add-ons:

HBO Max: $15/month

Starz: $9/month after one-week trial

Showtime: $11/month after one-week trial

Paramount Plus: $6/month (ad-supported) or $10/month (commercial-free) after one-week trial

Cinemax: $10/month after one-week trial

How expensive is it to use Prime Video Channels?

It depends on which channels you’re choosing to subscribe to. You won’t be paying for channels you don’t use or want, and you can cancel at any time. Major channels will cost about $6 to $15 a month on top of your existing Prime membership. You can also test many channel subscriptions with a seven-day trial before committing.

In terms of comparative pricing, Prime Video Channel prices are the same as what you’d find when subscribing directly to each standalone service. But, Prime Channels offers Prime members the added perk of keeping all your subscriptions housed in one platform.

Are there free channels?

Although most channels on Prime Video have a monthly cost, Prime Video includes the ad-supported IMDb TV channel for access to a number of shows and movies for free. The channel has a variety of content, including throwback movies like “Bring It On” and “The Karate Kid,” and binge-worthy series such as “Lost” and “Mad Men.”

The channel also has original videos, like “The IMDb Show,” so you can discover more about popular movies. Since it’s free, however, IMDb TV includes commercial breaks.

What are the TV shows and movies you can watch?

Each channel features a host of programs, but the selection varies depending on the service. Here are a few of the most popular shows and movies you can stream on Prime Video Channels and where to find them:

HBO Max: “Euphoria,” “Mare of Easttown,” “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver,” “Game of Thrones”

Starz: “The Girlfriend Experience,” “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” “Power Book II: Ghost”

Showtime: “City on a Hill,” “Billions,” “Your Honor,” “Shameless”

Paramount Plus: “Why Women Kill,” “For Heaven’s Sake,” “The Real World Homecoming: New York,” “Star Trek: Discovery”

The Paramount Plus ad-supported plan costs $6 a month, and the commercial-free plan costs $10 a month. If you end up using the service for a full year, that comes out to $72 or $120, respectively.

The streaming service’s annual plans, however, will knock those costs down by around 15%. If you pay for a full year up front, you can get an ad-supported plan for $60 a year, or a commercial-free plan for $100 a year.

Paramount Plus also offers a seven-day free trial for new subscribers. This way you can test the service before you commit to paying for an annual plan.

Subscribers get access to a variety of original programs, including a new “SpongeBob Squarepants” movie and spinoff series. There’s also a number of other original shows and movies on the way. You can read our full Paramount Plus review here.

March Madness is nearing its conclusion as the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Basketball tournaments are both down to their Final Four. The women’s Final Four will play first on April 2 with ESPN airing the game live from San Antonio, Texas; CBS will broadcast the Men’s Final Four on April 3 from Indianapolis, Indiana.

After canceling the annual event for the first time in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, the NCAA revived its men’s and women’s basketball tournaments with precautions in place. Rather than splitting tournament games across several different cities, the NCAA invited all 68 qualifying men’s teams to Indianapolis and the 64 women’s teams to San Antonio.

If you don’t already have access to CBS through your TV provider, you can stream the men’s Final Four and national championship game with a Paramount Plus subscription starting at $6 a month. The women’s Final Four and championship game will only air on ESPN, so if you’re not a cable subscriber you’ll need to pay for a service like Sling, Hulu + Live TV or YouTube TV to watch live.

March Madness 2021 dates and times

March Madness 2021 began with the First Four on March 18 and continues with the Final Four this weekend. The tournament will conclude with the Men’s NCAA Championship Game on April 5.

The men’s Final Four will feature a clash of two Texas schools when Houston plays Baylor, while a surprising UCLA team will continue its run towards the school’s 12th tournament championship against Gonzaga, an undefeated powerhouse.

In the women’s tournament, three of the four top seeded teams remain, including the perennial favorite UConn Huskies, led by freshman and AP Player of the Year Paige Bueckers.
