CBS-All-Access-LogoIt seems like every television network in the world has their own app these days. CBS was actually one of the first networks to take the full plunge. Today, CBS offers their own stand alone service called Paramount Plus. It’s similar to Netflix or HBO Now where you subscribe for a monthly fee and get access to everything the network has to offer.  The service is worth it on it’s own just for NCAA Basketball streaming action early in the year. Let’s go through some of the details of the service below.

UPDATE: 12/5/2016 – Paramount Plus now gives you access to NFL games in your region! Try it out this weekend!

Is there a Commercial-Free Paramount Plus Option?

Yep! They announced it in 2016. It’s $9.99 as opposed to $5.99 but that might be worth it to you not to have to watch the same 3 ads over and over and over (looking at you, Hulu/Youtube).  Just choose that option when you sign up for your free trial.

Is there a Free Trial for Paramount Plus?


Yes there is! You get a one week free trial for any new subscription to Paramount Plus. It’s only six dollars a month after that but it’s great to get a free window where you can make sure their app works on all of your various devices.
