Paramount+ is the streaming service that succeeds CBS All Access, giving the entire ViacomCBS and Paramount worlds a proper global brand. CBS All Access becomes Paramount+ on March 4, and in many ways it's really just an exercise in rebranding, though it will bring the content to a much wider audience. You'll still have series. You'll still have movies. You'll be able to watch the NFL on Paramount+.

And that begs the question: What's the Paramount+ price? How much is Paramount+ going to cost? And is there a Paramount+ free trial?

We've got answers to some of that now, and some we'll get more answers a little further down the road.

Here's everything you need to know about the Paramount+ price, and what the service might end up costing in the future. (And for even more, be sure to see our Paramount Plus review.)

What's the Paramount Plus price in the United States?

When CBS All Access transitioned to Paramount+ on March 4, 2021, it brought with it a slightly new pricing structure. The main fee is a $9.99-a-month (or $99.99 a year) "Premium" tier if you want to get rid of most ads. (There are still a couple series that will have advertising.) There's still the $5.99-a-month option, too, (or $59.99 a year) if you don't mind watching ads.

And if you're a current CBS All Access subscriber who made the transition to Paramount+, you'll be grandfathered in under your old rates.

But starting in June 2021, there will be a $4.99-a-month option that includes ads on the on-demand content, but lacks access to the live stream of your local CBS Affiliate.

That's pretty close to the same pricing plan as was available on CBS All Access. And you'll still be able to sign in to Paramount+ with a cable subscription to watch live local affiliates.

And that's the same content for starters, which also means you'll be able to watch live sports on Paramount+.

What's the Paramount Plus price in other countries?

We got pricing information for a few other countries during the Feb. 24 investor event.

In Argentina, a subscription will cost $299 ARS per month. Brazil will be priced at $19.90 BRL a month. Mexico will be priced at $79.90 MXN per month. Canada lands at $5.99 CAD per month. Denmark is Kr 59 DKK per month, and Sweden is Kr 69 SEK per month.

Paramount+ will be available in all of Latin America on March 4. The Nordics launch on March 25, and Australia is still expected to go live later in 2021.

Are there any Paramount+ deals or discounts?

It's entirely possible to save money on Paramount+. We'll start, again, by pointing to the annual subscription rates, which will save you $12 (or about two months' worth) if you opt for the $59.99-a-year with-advertising plan. And if you go for the $99.99 no-advertising option, you'll save about $20.

You also need to be aware that both plans come with a free one-week trial, so you can take things out for a test drive. And if you add the Showtime premium add-on during your Paramount+ trial period, you'll get to test both for free.

CBS All Access also has a deal for students with a valid .edu email address — they can save 25 percent on their subscriptions. Presumably Paramount+ also will include that deal.
