ViacomCBS is hanging a deal for its two premier subscription services – offering up to 38% discount for new customers who accept both Paramount Plus and Showtime.
What the company says is a limited time promo, it is offering a showtime and ad-supported Paramount Plus Essential plan together for 9.99 / month. Showtime of the ad-free Paramount Plus Premium plan is available for $ 12.99 / month bundle. Purchased separately, showtimes 10.99 / month; Paramount plus $ 4.99 / month with ads; And Paramount Plus বিজ্ঞ 9.99 / month without ads.
The bundle offer expires October 20, 2021, and is only available in the United States, according to the media company. Users need to access and view programming apps and websites for related services.
It is designed to provide an instant lift to ViacomCBS’s streaming subscriber numbers and capture market share. Showtimes / Paramount Plus combos are different from others, such as the Disney Bundle (Disney Plus, Hulu and ESPN Plus), which are available as a standing offer.
Entry-level Paramount Plus Essentials includes NFL games and more than 2,000 football matches each year, entertainment options on demand, full suite of current and upcoming shows and movies, as well as breaking news via CBSN, but lacks access to local CBS affiliates. Paramount Plus provides support for premium 4K, HDR and Dolby Vision and mobile downloads; An expanded live sports lineup; And a live stream of CBS affiliates in more than 200 markets across the United States
Users can sign up for the bundle directly from Paramount Plus (at this link) and Showtime (at this link) directly from the service’s respective website.
Last summer, ViacomCBS and Apple matched for similar price discount bundles (Showtime and CBS All Access, the predecessor of Paramount Plus). But that offer ended in January 2021.
