The norms of content consumption have changed dramatically over the past few years, from waiting in line to watch your favorite movies to streaming a blockbuster in the middle of your living room in the middle of the night. Netflix, of course, has been the pioneer, but now many other big names have joined the cult, hoping to deliver great entertainment to all who want it.
Amazon Prime Video is the streaming wing of the e-commerce giant, offering many solid shows, movies, and original content for all Amazon Prime users. You get original shows, movies, and some free Amazon content. However, if you want more exclusive content, you’ll need to shell out extra money for Prime Video channels.
This new Paramount Plus streaming service is available on Amazon Prime Video, but only as a paid channel. To watch all the great CBS offerings and more, you need to subscribe to the Paramount Plus channel separately.
So, here’s how to watch Paramount Plus on Amazon Prime.
