New subscribers can currently sign up to both Paramount Plus and Showtime for as little as $59.99 per year, thanks to a Black Friday 2022 deal. For those that don’t want Showtime, there’s also the option to save on the cost of the standard Paramount Plus annual plan. However, the best value overall is through the discounted bundle, which unlocks access to both subscriptions for the one price.
Paramount Plus costs $4.99 per month with ads, and $9.99 if opting for the ad-free Premium plan. Showtime only offers an ad-free plan, priced at $10.99 per month. However, if combining Paramount Plus and Showtime, it is possible to sign up for both from $119.99 for a full year. If wanting an ad-free Paramount Plus viewing experience, the cost of the bundle increases to $149.99 per year.
To celebrate Black Friday 2022, Paramount Plus has decreased the price of both of these Showtime bundles by 50%. The discount is now live on the Paramount+ website and brings the cost of the Essential + Showtime bundle down to just $59.99 per year, or the Premium + Showtime bundle down to $74.99 per year. On average, this brings the cost of the Essential bundle down to $5 and the Premium bundle down to $6.25 per month. For the Essential plan, this is the equivalent of getting Showtime for free, while the Premium plan with Showtime is even cheaper than the standalone monthly price of the Premium plan.
For those that don’t need Showtime, a standalone Paramount Plus Essential annual plan is currently down to just $24.99, and the ad-free Premium annual plan is down to $49.99. While these prices match an annual plan deal that was available just last week, the current deals don’t require a promo code. New subscribers can just sign up, select the annual plan they want, and checkout as normal. If the discount does not show up for some reason, it can be manually applied with the BFCM50 code before signing up.
Interestingly, Showtime doesn’t appear to be offering any Black Friday deals yet. Unless that changes, and even if opting for the $99.99 annual plan, Showtime on its own costs $25 more than the ad-free Paramount Plus Premium and Showtime annual bundle, and almost twice as much as the Essential and Showtime annual bundle. As it always the case with deals like these, the discoutned annual plans will renew at the usual higher rate.
