It'll launch in Latin America on March 4, with the Nordics getting Paramount Plus on March 25.
Paramount+ will take the place of CBS All Access, which includes live sports and TV shows on CBS channels, programming from channels such as BET and Comedy Central and original programming such as "Star Trek: Discovery". It will offer exclusive access to the latest films from Paramount Pictures within a year after the cinema premiere and titles such as Sonic The Hedgehog, Gemini Man and Paw Patrol: Ready, Race, Rescue. The service will also carry over All Access's expanded library.
ViacomCBS announced that Paramount+ will make its debut in the USA and Latin America on March 4, 2021.
If what you were wanting on a Wednesday morning was the news that you'll soon be able to subscribe to yet another video-on-demand streaming service then boy are you in luck.
CBS All Access reportedly has 8 million to 9 million subscribers in the U.S., so it's nowhere near the size of Netflix, Disney+, Amazon Prime Video, or even Hulu. Ultimately, Paramount Plus will need enough originals to reel people in - a new name will only go so far.
Showtime OTT is the streaming version of the Showtime premium TV network, which mostly streams Showtime's original shows.
If you're a CBS All Access subscriber, expect some design changes. That means it'll have Star Trek: Picard, The Good Fight, and more.
Currently, the ad-supported version of CBS All Access costs $US6 ($8) per month while the ad-free version costs $US10 ($13) per month (or $US60 ($78) and $US100 ($130) annually, respectively).
In the weeks after the July addition of content, ViacomCBS said that All Access broke a new record for total monthly streams in August and experienced one of its best months ever in terms of new subscriber sign-ups (though revealed no actual numbers).
Paramount+ will start to roll out on 4 March 2021. Pluto TV is a free, ad-supported streaming service that offers more than 200 linear channels, and has grown substantially in popularity in the previous year.
