The app is rated as 12+ on iOS App store and “Teen” in Google play store due to occasional mature content.
Paramount+ is building on CBS All Access which is one of the most competitive streaming service providers. It has a huge library of TV shows and movies available at a great price. Paramount+ costs just $4.99 per month for a basic plan, or $9.99 for an ad-free subscription.
On the home screen, you can find five tabs along the bottom of the screen. It features a carousel of highlighted content from CBS, BET, Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon etc. Clicking on the logo will take you to all the contents associated with that network. You can download your favourite shows into your mobile (up to 25 titles) and watch them offline and on the go. The service is available up to three simultaneous devices and six profiles.
Compared with other streaming provider like Netflix, Paramount Plus’s service is lagging behind. A big draw-back is no option to add titles to a watchlist while users nowadays are used to have this standard feature on most streaming apps. Regrettably, due to licensing rights some of CBS hits are absent from the platform like Two and a Half Men, The Big Bang Theory, and Yellowstone. However, the big allure of Paramount Plus is in the promise of future content. There are plans for some new release movies to arrive on Paramount Plus 30-45 days following their cinema release. It’s likely this will be a tactic used to draw in fresh subscribers. You can look forward to watch movies like Mission Impossible 7 from your home TV. Paramount plus premium subscription includes CBS Sports HQ where offers access to 1,000 sporting events each year, including The Masters, PGA Tour, and UEFA Champions League and more.
If you like family-friendly content, Paramount+ has CBS All Access originals like The Good Fight and Star Trek, other popular kid series like Spongebob, Paw Patrol and Peppa Pig can be found on Discovery to keep the younger ones entertained.
