If you subscribe to CBS All Access, you likely have noticed that it has been wiped from existence as they have fully rebranded the platform to “Paramount+“. A platform that uses a two-tier approach to subscriptions, similar to HULU where you have the option of with or without commercials.
The new platform includes everything CBS All Access was along with additional content within the Paramount umbrella, seeking to compete against every other streaming service out there (Netflix, Amazon Prime, HBO Max, Disney+, etc) with a more attractive name. This includes some very attractive shows, like Star Trek Discovery (an amazing show that never disappoints), popular movies, live sports, and news.
The two tiers include $5.99/mo (or $59.99/yr) for an ad-supported subscription (because paying for the opportunity to watch ads just makes your day, right?) and $9.99/mo (or $99.99/yr) for an ad-free approach that blends in with all of the other streaming platforms. If you were already a CBS All Access subscriber, your login will still work with the new service.
There is little chance that you would have missed this conversion since active CBS All Access subscribers have received communications from the company ahead of time letting them know of the upcoming changes (that have now taken place). Paramount has also spent an enormous amount of cash with its ad campaign, which includes being plastered all over this year’s Superbowl (LV) game last month.
For the most part, it’s the exact same streaming network, only with more content and a new name that feels a bit more “with the trend” of things than CBS All Access was.
