Paramount Plus price increase

Brace yourself, streaming fans: Paramount Plus is raising its subscription prices again. New subscribers will face higher costs starting August 20, 2024, while existing subscribers on certain plans will see the increase on their bill after September 20, 2024.

New Prices:

  • Paramount Plus Essential (with ads): $7.99/month (previously $5.99)
  • Paramount Plus with SHOWTIME (mostly ad-free): $12.99/month (previously $11.99)

Existing Subscribers:

  • Paramount Plus Essential: No price change at this time.
  • Paramount Plus with SHOWTIME: Price increases around September 20, 2024.
  • Legacy Limited Commercials Plan: Price increases to $7.99/month after August 20, 2024.

The annual plans for both Paramount Plus Essential and Paramount Plus with SHOWTIME remain unaffected at $59.99 and $119.99, respectively.

My sister, a longtime subscriber since the CBS All Access days, will be disappointed by this change, especially since she's on the Legacy plan. The impact on her annual subscription remains unclear. She loves the service and will likely stay with it, despite any increase.

Personally, I'm fortunate to have a discounted Paramount Plus with SHOWTIME annual plan through Walmart Plus, making it a worthwhile value for me. However, I wouldn't pay the full price for it. Well, I don't think I would.

My Streaming Life doesn't utilize many pay streaming services. Even so, Paramount Plus remains one of my favorites despite the upcoming price hike.
