It's designed to provide an immediate lift to ViacomCBS's streaming subscriber numbers and capture market share. The Showtime/Paramount Plus combo looks different from others, such as the Disney Bundle (Disney Plus, Hulu and ESPN Plus), which is available as a standing offer.
ViacomCBS is dangling a deal for its two premiere subscription services — offering up to 38% off for new customers who take both Paramount Plus and Showtime.
The entry-level Paramount Plus Essential includes NFL games and more than 2,000 soccer matches each year, with on-demand entertainment options spanning the full suite of current and upcoming shows and movies, as well as breaking news through CBSN, but it lacks access to livestreams of local CBS affiliates. Paramount Plus Premium provides support for 4K, HDR and Dolby Vision and mobile downloads; an expanded live sports lineup; and live streams of CBS affiliates in over 200 markets across the U.S.
But that offer expired in January 2021. Last summer, ViacomCBS and Apple teamed up for a similar price-discounted bundle (of Showtime and CBS All Access, the predecessor to Paramount Plus).
