The marriage of Paramount+ and Showtime’s streaming offerings is finally complete. Starting today, you can access all of Showtime’s content through the Paramount+ app, diversity reports. This integration has been in the works since February and should make life easier for fans of star trek who might also want to catch up with Showtime’s Yellow jackets. Previously, Paramount offered both services for a limited-time bundle price, but users had to access the apps separately.
To sweeten the deal, Paramount is offering another bundled discount through October 2nd: $7.99 per month for the “Essential Plan,” which includes ad-supported Paramount+ and ad-free Showtime, and $12.99 for the completely ad-free ” premium plan”. After that, they cost $11.99 and $14.99 per month respectively. (The Essential plan doesn’t include access to your local CBS station — you’ll need to choose Premium for that.)
Paramount+ alone currently costs $4.99 per month/$49.99 per year for the limited plan or $9.99 per month/$99.99 per year for the premium plan. If you stayed at the service to get yours star trek Fix, it’s not a big leap to spend a few extra bucks to get Showtime at the discounted price. And no matter how you look at it, the bundled plans are also a better deal than spending just $10.99 a month on Showtime.
While things are a bit confusing right now, Consolidating its streaming services makes sense for Paramount. It must compete with the combined forces of HBO Max and Discovery+, which will unify their platforms next year, and Netflix’s upcoming ad-supported tier. Both Paramount+ and Showtime have dedicated fan bases, but for many consumers, they’re also the kind of services that might get canceled if their favorite shows don’t air new episodes. However, together they may have just enough content to keep subscribers.
