Paramount Plus: Everything You Need to Know

Learn everything we know about Paramount Plus including content, price, platforms, and more.

Paramount Plus is like having a VIP pass to the CBS library.

I enjoy the CBS original show The Good Fight because it is a follow-up to the CBS original series The Good Wife.

 

Similar to traditional TV models, a new episode is released each week and season 4 of The Good Fight just started.

I was a big fan of The Good Wife. I watched it from its premiere in 2009 until its finale in 2016.

So, naturally, I was thrilled when a continuation of characters like Diane Lockhart and Lucca Quinn would be crossing over to the new show The Good Fight.

I even helped to promote the new show when it premiered by hosting a launch party sponsored by Roku, a then new-to-me network.

2017 – Season 1

2018 – Season 2

2019 – Season 3

2020 – Season 4

People really also enjoy all of the Star Trek series and some of the other Paramount Plus originals. Having the Paramount Plus subscription, you will be able to watch all of the previous seasons of many current CBS shows along with older series. Go back and watch these older shows to enjoy the nostalgia or introduce your kids to some things that you watched when you were younger.

Paramount Plus review

Paramount Plus commercials?

This is the one feature I don’t like – commercials. The $4.99/month plan (this is the one I have) includes “limited commercials.” The $9.99/month plan is “commercial-free.” I use quotes there because the commercials don’t go away entirely, though; live TV content still has commercials just as if you were watching it over cable. 

Live TV includes commercials and select shows have promotional interruptions. I am considering paying for the full year because you can save over 15% OFF the monthly price with an annual plan.

Paramount Plus yearly cost

It’s $49.99/year for the “Essential” plan, which includes limited ads.

It’s $99.99/year for the “Premium” plan, which is commercial-free (except when watching live TV).
