Paramount+ Plans and Pricing — Everything You Need To Know

By Staff• Edited by Lisa Holden • Updated Dec 07, 2023

Wondering what Paramount+ plans and pricing options are available? Paramount+ is the home of shows from ViacomCBS and so much more. You can watch old episodes of your favorite shows, as well as top originals like Star Trek: Picard and coverage of sports like the UEFA Champions League. Read on, and get all the details you need about Paramount+ plans and pricing.

Paramount+ Essential

If you’re on a tight budget, the Paramount+ Essential plan is the way to go. It includes access to all on-demand content from Paramount+, as well as live feeds for the UEFA Champions League and NFL on CBS.

However, it also does include commercials breaks while watching on-demand content, and you don’t get access to a live feed of your local CBS Station, so keep this in mind when you subscribe.

Paramount+ with Showtime

If you’ve got a bit more cash to throw around and you don’t like watching ads, the Paramount+ w/ Showtime plan is a good choice. However, it’s almost exactly twice as expensive as the Paramount+ Essential Plan.

What’s the difference? Ad-free viewing of all on-demand content! You also get full access to a live stream of your local live CBS station. And you should note that, while on-demand content is ad-free, ads will run normally on your CBS station, as well as on NFL and Champions League games, just like they would while watching live TV.

Another huge difference is the addition of Showtime with your plan! You get full access to everything that Paramount has to offer, as well as live and on-demand Showtime content, so you can watch your favorites like Yellowjackets and The Chi.

Enjoy streaming with Paramount+

No matter what plan you choose under Paramount+, you won’t be disappointed. And with the Paramount+ w/ Showtime plan, you’ll have access to two full content libraries, so you’ll always find something worth watching.
