What is Paramount+?

Paramount+ is a streaming service designed to rival Netflix.

Although it might seem new, that’s not totally true.

The service actually launched as CBS All Access back in October 2014.

But it was rebranded as Paramount+ on March 4, 2021.

The rebrand was a result of the 2019 re-merging of CBS and Viacom.

Paramount+ also signalled an expansion of the service to Latin America, with plans to enter Nordic countries on March 25.

A later launch in Australia is also planned this year, as 10 All Access.

Paramount+ has two tiers, just like CBS All Access before it.

The ad-supported tier is $5.99 a month or $59.99 per year.

And the ad-free version is $9.99 a month or $99.99 per year.

When is Paramount+ out? US and UK release dates

Paramount+ launched in the US on March 4, 2021.

But its predecessor CBS All Access came out on October 28, 2014.

In Nordic countries, the service launches on March 25.

And the Australian version will launch later this year.

There’s currently no word on a UK launch.

Paramount+ content – what TV shows and movies are available?

Paramount+ has a wide range of TV shows and movies, including original content.

Some of the big-hitter TV shows include legal drama The Good Fight, historical period drama Strange Angel and the very popular Star Trek: Discovery.

You’ve also got Star Trek: Picard, comedy No Activity, and dark comedy-drama Why Women Kill.

On the movies front, you’ll be able to enjoy The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run, Paranormal Activity 7 and documentary Console Wars.

Like most streaming services, the catalogue will expand over time.
