This week, Paramount+ and Showtime made streaming a little bit less stressful by making content from both services available in one app. Now, Paramount+ can be upgraded to offer Showtime all in the same app, eliminating the small but still annoying hassle of downloading, updating and opening an additional streaming service. Paramount+ and Showtime will still be available as separate apps. The merge launched on August 31. For a limited time, you can get the bundle at a discounted price.
The merger makes it so you can watch all kinds of shows and movies in the same place. For example, you can watch the latest episode of Survivor, then easily swith over to Yellowjackets. We are so spoiled.
The plans: From now until October 2, subscribers can sign up for the Paramount+ and Showtime bundle at discounted rate. A basic subscription with ads is $7.99 per month, and the ad-free offer is $12.99 per month. After that, the ad-supported version will cost you $11.99 per month, and the ad-free service will cost you $14.99 per month.
