I know, I know who needs a new streaming service in 2021, right? But Paramount + launched today isn’t technically new – it’s just an upgraded version of CBS All Access that has been expanded to take advantage of all of the synergies created by the merger of CBS and Paramount Pictures’ parent company Viacom in 2019 have arisen.
As we explained a few weeks agoThis makes Paramount + a streaming hub for a whole range of Viacom content, including a number of existing and upcoming original series (36 this year!), a huge library of Paramount films (2,500 at launch, with some high profile theatrical releases from 2021) 45 days after they hit the canvas) and a whole lot of live sports (March Madness ahoy).
In particular, if you are a TV fanatic, here are some things to keep in mind: To start, the service’s catalog includes programs from CBS, Nickelodeon, MTV, Comedy Central, BET, and others. These diverse networks encompass many great cross-genre TV shows. Now they’re all in one place for around $ 5 a month (or $ 10 if you can’t cope with limited commercial breaks).
Is it enough to get you to the pony? Well, I did (although, with full disclosure, I took advantage of a 50% off pre-launch promotion) and this slideshow provides evidence of why.
