By Staff, Deja Harris• Edited by Lisa Holden • Updated Dec 11, 2023

Paramount+ is one of the hottest new streaming services on the market. It offers a huge range of enjoyable content for the whole family, from recently-released blockbuster movies like Jackass Forever to big-budget shows like Halo.

There's a lot to like about this service, from its versatile range of on-demand content and live sporting event access to its affordable pricing structure. One thing you may not know is that Paramount+ is available as an optional Amazon Prime Video channel.

So, if you're already an Amazon Prime Video subscriber, you may want to simply add Paramount+ to your existing subscription, giving you even more great content to watch. In this guide, we’ll look at how to watch Paramount+ on Amazon Prime Video.

How to add the Paramount+ channel in Amazon Prime Video?

Adding the Paramount+ channel to your Amazon Prime Video subscription is relatively straightforward. All you need to do is follow the steps listed below:

  1. First, head to Amazon Prime Video’s website if you’re adding in a browser, or load up the Prime Video app on a device of your choosing.
  2. Search for or click on the Paramount+ channel.
  3. Click on "More Details" and then choose "Start your free trials".
  4. Choose your plan and click again to confirm and start the trial.

You'll get the first seven days of Paramount+ for free, and after that, you'll be charged a monthly cost, in addition to any other channel subscriptions, for access to this service.

Is Paramount+ free with Amazon Prime in 2024?

No, Paramount+ is not free with Amazon Prime Video at this time. Paramount+ is a separate, standalone streaming service that is not included with any kind of Amazon Prime membership. However, Amazon does make it possible to include Paramount+ as a channel on your Amazon Prime Video account.

The advantage of this is that you can access all of your Paramount+ and Amazon content in the same place and manage billing from one location, too.

How much does Paramount+ cost?

There are two payment plans to choose from: Paramount+ Essential and Paramount+ With SHOWTIME. The Essential plan has ads, while the plan with SHOWTIME is ad-free.

It is important to note that, at this time, only one plan is available as a channel on Amazon Prime Video. So, if you want to add Paramount+ to your channel list on Prime Video, you'll need to pay the monthly add-on price for the plan with SHOWTIME.
