Since it became the new CBS All Access, viewers have wondered if Paramount Plus is free and how long its free trial lasts. Paramount Plus launched in March 2021 as a streaming service for ViacomCBS programs such as Star Trek: Discovery, The Good Fight and Love Island USA.
The site, which replaced CBS All Access and has more than 8 million subscribers, is the exclusive streaming service for ViacomCBS networks such as CBS, MTV, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, BET and the Smithsonian channel. The service offers a library of more than 30,000 TV episodes and over 1,000 movies, as well as a live stream to CBS, so fans can watch CBS shows like Big Brother, Young Sheldon and Survivor in real time as new episodes air on TV.
There’s no doubt that Paramount Plus has a lot to offer. But with so many streaming services on the market (Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, Disney+, HBO Max—the list goes on), it’s understandable why customers want to test out the site for free first before they commit and subscribe. Ahead is what we know about Paramount Plus’ free trial and how to try out the streaming service at no cost.
