The rebranded Paramount+ that launched in March this year now has a new price for its ad tier version and is cheaper than its predecessor.
Starting today, consumers can get Paramount+ with ads for just $4.99 a month. The streaming service also has an ad-free version for $9.99 a month.
With the new lower price that was previously $5.99 a month, it will enable more consumers to subscribe and become interested in Paramount+.
Ad-supported Paramount+ will include all of its current content, along with new originals, TV shows and movies on the service. That does mean ad-supported users will get access to movies released this summer on the platform, such as “Infinite” starring Mark Wahlberg that is set to be released on Thursday, June 10, and the Nickelodeon “PAW Patrol: The Movie” that will be released on Friday, August 20.
Although these same users will get live coverage of events like NFL games and 1600 soccer matches each year, the ad-supported plan will not include a live stream of a user’s local CBS station. However, it will include live 24/7 CBSN coverage.
The new ad-supported Paramount+ plan can be subscribed to through its app in the App Store and its website. At this time, it is not available as an in-app purchase through the App Store, but that could change.
