CBS All Access, we hardly knew ye. The streaming service launched a little over six years ago, but now it is morphing into a new and much bigger competitor to Netflix, Disney Plus, HBO Max, Peacock, and others. The service is now called Paramount Plus (branded as “Paramount +”), and it’s aiming to use the huge content library of Paramount Pictures and ViacomCBS’s TV properties to its advantage.

As you will see, the change in name will be more than just cosmetic. Paramount Plus has major plans to offer tons of new and exclusive content. A lot of them will be revivals or spin-offs of its most famous properties. It will also offer something for film fans who don’t want to go back to movie theaters immediately.

If you want to jump in head first, you can sign up for a free 7-day trial. 

What is Paramount Plus?

This is the renamed streaming service from ViacomCBS that was previously known as CBS All Access. It will have all of the content of CBS All Access, plus a ton of new and upcoming shows and movies. The company first announced the name change back in September 2020.

Why change the name, anyway?

CBS was previously a part of its parent company Viacom (which owned Paramount Pictures and many cable TV networks). In 2006, the companies split in two. In October 2014, CBS launched its All Access streaming service, to offer live streaming of its network programs as well as original programming.

In late 2019, Viacom and CBS merged again into one company, dubbed ViacomCBS. It was announced soon afterward that the CBS All Access service would be rebranded as Paramount Plus, because the Paramount name is more well known internationally.

Thankfully, the answer is no.  Your subscription, login, and password to CBS All Access will all transfer automatically to Paramount Plus. Even the apps you use to watch shows and movies on CBS All Access will update to the new service.

How much is Paramount Plus?

At first, the pricing for Paramount Plus will be exactly the same as CBS All Access. You can subscribe, with ads, for $5.99 a month, or $59.99 a year. There’s also a no-ad option that costs $9.99 a month, or $99.99 a year. The no-ad option adds a few other extra features including 4K, HDR, and Dolby Vision support for select shows and movies. The $9.99 monthly plan also adds offline viewing, letting you download up to 25 titles at a time. 

In June 2021, Paramount Plus will offer a slightly cheaper $4.99 a month plan that replaces the current $5.99 monthly option. Aside form the price cut, the only difference is you will not be able to get live TV streams from your local CBS station (there will be some live sports and live NFL football games).

If you have already signed up for the $5.99 a month, or $59.99 annual, plan under CBS All Access, you will be grandfathered into Paramount Plus, and can continue to stream live content from your CBS station. However, if you cancel, you’ll lose access to this grandfathered privilege for good and will have to switch to one of the two new plans.

Bundle with Showtime for a special price
