Paramount+ price increase

It was announced recently that Showtime and Paramount+ apps would be merged into a single app. Now, the price increase -- you knew there would be a price increase, right? -- is known.

There was speculation that prices would go up $1 to $2 per month, and that turns out to be right on target.

Cord Cutters News published the details recently:

Paramount+ will be raising the price of its service by $1 to $2 a month account for the new Showtime content. The ad-supported plan will go up to $5.99 a month, and the ad-free version will go up to $11.99 a month.

When this merger happens, the Showtime app will be shut down later this year, and you will need to access Showtime content through the Paramount+ app.

In the last couple of years, Paramount+ has offered a Showtime add-on for only $1 or $2 more per month. Now that will be the regular price and regular service.

My Streaming Life has the $5 (soon to be $6) per month version because it's included with Walmart+. I don't know if Walmart+ will continue to include the service, but I hope they do.
