It’s game time and Paramount Plus is ready to be part of your live sports streaming strategy. The Paramount Plus streaming service is a prime example of how live sports and those delivering them to fans are embracing the streaming era.

Paramount Plus delivers viewers a huge library of TV shows and movies, this includes classic ViacomCBS programming like Nickelodeon shows and Paramount Studio movies (Mission: Impossible, Interstellar, Grease, The Avengers) as well as Paramount Plus original series — i.e. Star Trek: Picard, iCarly and the Yellowstone spinoff 1883.

Paramount Plus US also has live TV which, of course, also covers live sports. But more than just what you’d get on your local CBS station, Paramount Plus has streaming deals with international leagues and popular events. All of this is available with either of the Paramount Plus US subscription plans — the $4.99 ad-supported version or the $9.99 ad-free option.

(At least at this time, Paramount Plus UK does not offer live sports).

NFL on Paramount Plus

The good news is that US Paramount Plus subscribers can stream NFL games on Paramount Plus. The great news is that it doesn't matter what subscription tier you signed up for, live streaming of NFL games every Sunday is available to any and all US Paramount Plus subscribers. The only caveat is that you can only get the games that are available on your local CBS station, with some blackout restrictions still applying.

College football on Paramount Plus

In addition to the pros, college football on Paramount Plus is also available. Like the NFL, these are just games that are airing on the traditional CBS station or CBS Sports, but that includes weekly SEC on CBS games and select games featuring the military academies (Air Force, Army and Navy). Unlike the NFL, these live college football games are only available for Paramount Plus premium subscribers.
