When the Paramount+ rebrand took place on CBS All Access, ViacomCBS had announced that we’d see some bundles for its different streaming services. The one that many were looking for right away, was SHOWTIME and Paramount+. As those are their two most popular services. The other streaming service in their portfolio is BET+.
Now, that bundle is finally available. So you can bundle SHOWTIME and Paramount+ for just $11.99 per month. If you’d prefer ad-free Paramount+, that will be $14.99 per month. That’s a pretty good price, since SHOWTIME is actually $10.99 per month normally. So you’re getting Paramount+ for a buck.
Even if there’s not a lot of content on Paramount+ that you want to watch, but already subscribe to SHOWTIME, this is a bundle you’ll want.
You can purchase an annual plan, saving even more cash
On top of that, you can also purchase an annual plan for this bundle. That would cost you $119.99 per year or about $10 per month to get Paramount+ and SHOWTIME together. But if you want the ad-free version of Paramount+, that goes to $149.99 per year, that works out to around $12.50 per month. Still some great savings there too.
This bundle will include a one-week free trial for those that are new subscribers. If you’ve subscribed to either SHOWTIME or Paramount+ (or CBS All Access) before, you won’t be eligible for the free trial, unfortunately.
This is a really good deal for this bundle, both monthly and yearly prices. And it will likely drive more sign ups for both services, instead of one over the other. Which is also pretty important here. Paramount+ hasn’t gotten a lot of love lately, because there’s not a lot of content available there that a lot of people would want. But it is also pretty cheap, like Peacock. Which means a lot of people will sign up and just forget about it. That’s likely what ViacomCBS is planning on, until it can get more original content out there.
