Paramount+ Review: Pros, Cons, Plans and Cost


Paramount+ Review: Pros, Cons, Plans and Cost


Paramount+ is an on-demand and live TV streaming service that offers all of your favorite CBS television programs and films, including Star Trek: Odd New Worlds, NCIS, Blue Bloods, and Survivor.

But, the fun does not end there. You will also discover some of your favorite programs and films from BET, Comedy Central, MTV, Smithsonian Channel, and Nickelodeon.

And you will just need to allocate $5–$10 per month for this mobile entertainment. Too bad considering all you receive with this service.

Let’s examine this streaming service’s specifics to see if it’s worth your time.

Pros Cons
  • Paramount+ has 30,000+ hours of content
  • Live Channels ( News and NFL Games )
  • We like that low monthly price
  • Some TV shows don’t include all episodes in the library
  • Paramount+ channels aren’t available everywhere

Paramount+ Plans Cost

There are two Paramount+ plans: one with advertisements and one without them.

It’s wonderful that Paramount+ gives you a cheap choice, just in case it fits your budget better. Of course, we recommend investing $5 more for uninterrupted viewing during your Stephen King marathon, but it’s nice that Paramount+ offers a cheaper alternative.

In addition, if you pay for a $100 yearly membership in advance, you will save 16%. Take advantage of the 25 percent student discount if you are a student.

Plans Price Commercials Details
Paramount+ Essential Plan $4.99/Month Live: Yes ( On Demand: yes ) Check Out
Paramount+ Premium plan $9.99/Month Live:  Yes ( On Demand:  No ) Check Out

Paramount+ Essential Plan Overview

Paramount+ Essential Plan Overview

The $5 per month Paramount+ Essential plan is for those looking to save money. With this package, you will have access to the whole collection of Paramount+, but you will be subjected to advertisements while streaming.

On the first episode of Star Trek: Discovery that we streamed, there were five commercial breaks.

We’d think it’s worth the extra $5 per month to skip these adverts, especially if you’re attempting to binge-watch ten episodes of your favorite television program.

You will be able to view your local CBS station live upon upgrading!

Paramount+ Premium Plan Overview

The Paramount+ Premium plan is only $5 more expensive than the Basic plan. There will be no difference in content, but you will not be required to see Apple or Samsung advertisements.

If you ask us, it is well worth the additional money to prevent these annoying interruptions. Before committing, however, we urge that you sign up for the free trial to determine whether or not the advertisements disturb you.

When you watch live TV on Paramount+ with the Premium subscription, you cannot avoid the advertisements (like your local CBS channel). There is no way to avoid advertising on live television. Such is the nature of live TV, and the same holds true for any other live TV streaming competition.

Paramount+ Notable Features

Paramount+ permits streaming in 1080p on three different devices. You can’t expect too much from a low-cost streaming service, and Paramount+’s offerings are rather ordinary.

You receive three simultaneous streams, a maximum quality of 1080p, and on-demand playback choices.

Plan Simultaneous streams On-demand playback Commercials Details
Essential (with ads) 3 Yes Live: yes | On-demand: yes View Plan
Premium (No Ads) 3 Yes Live: yes | On-demand: No View Plan

Is Paramount+ worth it?

If you enjoy CBS dramas, such as the caustic back-and-forth between McGarrett and Danno on Hawaii Five-0, or if you require a daily dose of NCIS (how does Gibbs fit that yacht in his basement, anyway? ), Paramount+ is a dream come true at a reasonable price.

In addition, you will get access to Paramount Pictures films and a library of television shows from networks such as BET, MTV, Comedy Central, Nickelodeon, and the Smithsonian Channel.
