It is currently possible to save 50% on a Paramount+ Essential or Paramount+ with Showtime annual plan right now, thanks to a new limited-time promotion.


Paramount Plus unlocks access to a variety of content. Not only is it the home of Paramount+ Originals a wide library of on-demand content, but a subscription also includes access to live programming, including live sports.

Now, and as part of a promotion to highlight all the sports you can watch live on Paramount Plus in the fall, new subscribers can save 50% on the cost of an annual plan when signing up.


Basically, this promotion reduces the cost of the standard Paramount+ Essential annual plan down from $59.99 a year to $29.99 a year, which works out to be just $2.49 a month on average.

Alternatively, the promotion reduces the cost of the Paramount+ with Showtime plan down from $119.99 to $59.99, which works out to be around $4.99 a month on average.

For those unfamiliar with the differences, the Paramount+ with Showtime plan not only removes the ads, but also unlocks access to the Showtime library, in addition to the subscriber’s local CBS station.


Regardless of whether signed up to the Essential or Paramount+ with Showtime plan, all subscribers are able to stream NFL on CBS, UEFA Champions League, CBS Sports Golazo Network, and more.

For those that do decide to upgrade to the Paramount+ with Showtime plan, they will be able to stream all CBS sports, including SEC football, NCAA basketball, golf, hockey, and more.

For reference, these 50% off annual plan deals went live today (Aug.18) and should remain available up until September 21, 2023.
