What is Paramount Plus?

Paramount + was born on March 4, 2021 as a rebrand of CBS All Access, a live streaming TV subscription service launched by CBS in 2014 mainly in the United States. Since then, however, it has become a strong competitor to Netflix, Prime Video, and Disney + by offering plenty of noteworthy original content. Paramount +, over time, has begun to enjoy great public acclaim (in September 2022 it will reach 45 global markets) is unique because it offers content from the combined ViacomCBS network, which includes properties such as Paramount, Nickelodeon, MTV, BET and Comedy Central.
