Today is the big day. CBS All Access is officially dead and Paramount + is taking its place. Parent company ViacomCBS promises that you will get access to more content than ever from Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, BET and more. But what̵
It probably helps that Paramount + is replacing CBS All Access, so the company had a head start in making TV apps. But that’s all the better, because in addition to the major smart TV platforms, you can even find Paramount + on other smart TVs and platforms, including Samsung’s TV app store and Apple TV.
If you are already a CBS All Access subscriber, use the same account as always and the transition should be seamless. If you’ve subscribed to the $ 5 per month ad support level with live TV, you’re grandfather to that offering. You don’t even need to install a new app, the CBS All Access app will automatically update to Paramount +.
However, if you are a new subscriber, you will need to download the apps from the Roku, Chromecast, and Fire TV store. Paramount + has a free trial for a limited time. Register before March 31 and you can watch a month before making a decision. After that, the service costs $ 5.99 per month with commercials and live TV, or $ 9.99 without commercials and live TV. In June, the $ 5.99 option will disappear and Paramount + will instead offer a $ 4.99 ad-supported option without live TV.
You can now download Paramount + from Roku, Fire TV, Chromecast and Apple TV.
