Paramount+ is now widely available via Google TV, Android, and Chromecast.
It replaces CBS All Access that launched a few years ago. The catalog is largely the same, but with a bunch of new original content and more. Originals on Paramount+ include a new Spongebob Squarepants prequel series, Kamp Koral, as well as Star Trek: Discovery and Lower Decks. The platform will also be releasing a reboot for Frasier and a new series based on the hit game series Halo. Paramount+ will also host major films from the studio’s catalog including the Mission Impossible series, Sonic the Hedgehog, Bill & Ted Face the Music and more.
Paramount+ starts its pricing at $6.99, but on that tier, the content is shown with ads throughout. There’s an optional upgrade, though, to $9.99/month that ditches the ads. If users were already subscribed to CBS All Access, it automatically switched to the new service.
The application is available for download on the Play Store for Android smartphones and tablets. If users want to install on an Android TV such as the Nvidia Shield TV or a Sony panel, you’ll need to install a separate listing. Paramount+ is, of course, also supported on the new Chromecast with Google TV using that same app. It can be easily found on the “Apps” tab of the home screen that is currently highlighting its arrival. For older Chromecasts, you’ll be able to cast from Android or iOS smartphones and tablets. Chromebooks can access the service through paramountplus.com.
