If you have confirmed that your Samsung TV model is compatible, your software is up to date, and Paramount Plus is officially supported in your region, but you still cannot find the app, it is recommended to reach out to Samsung customer support or Paramount Plus support for further assistance. They can provide specific guidance and help resolve any issues you may face.

External Streaming Devices
