Do you have room in your wallet and your password manager for one more streaming service? Before you brace yourself for C-Span+, don’t worry, it’s more exciting than that — CBS All Access has morphed into the far more broad Paramount+, and its huge catalog of shows and movies is available now on Roku!
This shouldn’t be news, but after the prolonged face-offs between Peacock and Amazon, HBO Max and Roku, HBO Max and Amazon, Peacock and Roku, and Chromecast begging everyone else to remember they existed, it’s refreshing to see a new streaming service debut with minimal drama. Also, you’ll get to enjoy “Spongebob on the Run”, an excellent follow-up choice if you can’t watch the Tom and Jerry movie on HBO Max yet again and your kids are dying for a movie. And if you’re looking for more grown-up fare, Paramount+ has a very impressive catalog with everything from CBS All Access as well as Comedy Central, BET, MTV, and The Smithsonian Channel. Also, a whole lotta new Star Trek.
If you don’t have a Roku, maybe this is the excuse to finally snap one up? And Paramount+ won’t bust your wallet at only $5.99 a month, so as we reach 12 months into the pandemic and wonder “have I watched to the end of all the streaming?”, have no fear, because Paramount+ is here to provide.
