Paramount+ has launched today on Amazon Fire TV devices, Prime Video Channels, and other platforms. The new streaming service replaces CBS All Access by merging CBS content with Viacom’s catalog of content from BET, Comedy Central, Nickelodeon, MTV, the Smithsonian Channel, and more. The new Paramount+ app for Fire TV has been swapped in under the same listing as the old CBS All Access app, so you’ll just need to update the app if you already have the old CBS app installed. Paramount+ is also available as a Prime Video Channel which does also give you full access to the app.
Paramount+ is available for ad-free for $9.99 per month or with limited ads for $4.99, but the ad-supported tier won’t be available until June. In the meantime, Paramount+ is still offering the old $5.99 per month ad-supported tier that CBS All Access offered. If you subscribe directly through Paramount, you can get a 1-month free trial by entering promocode MOUNTAIN. Only the $9.99/month ad-free tier is available currently through Prime Video Channels. There is no free trial through Prime Video Channels, but you’ll pay only $0.99 for your first month.
Subscribing through Prime Video Channels will give you full access to the Paramount+ app as long as you link your Amazon and Paramount accounts. For that reason and others, it’s more beneficial to ultimately subscribe through Prime Video Channels for the extra perks you get through Amazon.
