Starting today, Paramount+ will start offering the Paramount Plus with Showtime bundle, which brings the service’s library of original series, hit shows and popular movies for the whole family together with the Showtime service’s premium portfolio of critically acclaimed and boundary-pushing programming.
The Paramount Plus with Showtime bundle is available to U.S. subscribers at a special, limited time price of $7.99 per month for the Essential Plan and $12.99 per month for the Premium Plan.
This all-new product experience, which is available for purchase across platforms, allows for seamless sign-up and easier discovery of programming from Paramount+ and Showtime, all within the Paramount+ app.
Subscribers who opt into the new bundle will have access to the full Showtime service featuring award-winning original series, provocative documentaries, box-office hit films, comedy and music specials and live hard-hitting combat sports.
“The Paramount+ with Showtime bundle offers consumers unprecedented value by providing one of the broadest content libraries in streaming at one of the lowest prices in the marketplace,” said Tom Ryan, president and chief executive officer of Paramount Global Streaming.
“This singular user experience streamlines sign-up and enhances discovery, and this lower price will allow more households to enjoy this exceptional combined entertainment offering.”
Available as a simple in-app upgrade, bundle subscribers can now effortlessly curate their watch list to include both Paramount+ and Showtime programming, from Paramount+ favorites like 1883, Halo, Star Trek: Discovery and Secret Headquarters to Showtime hits like Billions, The Chi, Dexter: New Blood, and more.
This fall, bundle subscribers will also be treated to new Paramount+ originals, such as Tulsa King, On the Come Up, Criminal Minds, Wolf Pack, 1923 and the return of The Good Fight, SEAL Team and The NFL on CBS, as well as highly-anticipated Showtime series American Gigolo, Let the Right One In, and the return of Your Honor and The L World: Generation Q.
Following the special introductory pricing, which is available through Oct. 2, the Paramount Plus with Showtime bundle will be available for $11.99 for the Essential tier or $14.99 for the ad-free Premium tier.
The ad-supported Essential Plan combines marquee sports, including NFL games and more than 2,000 soccer matches each year, with on-demand entertainment options spanning the full suite of current and upcoming shows and movies, as well as breaking news through CBS News Network.
The Premium Plan features commercial-free, on-demand entertainment with 4K, HDR and Dolby Vision and mobile downloads; an extended roster of must-watch sports; and live streams of local affiliates in over 200 markets across the U.S.
The Showtime service with its unparalleled roster of hit original content, live sports and theatrical films, will be commercial-free for both Paramount+ plans.
The new Paramount+ with Showtime experience will begin rolling out across platforms today.
In addition to the Paramount+ with Showtime bundle, Showtime will continue to be available separately for $10.99 as a standalone service and through other third-party distributors.
