Does Paramount+ Have Live TV?

Paramount+ is here! Whether you were an existing subscriber of CBS All Access, being shuttled to the newly rebranded streaming service, or a new customer exploring the many shows and movies, there’s lots to see and discover—including live sports, streams of local affiliates and a 24-hour streaming news service.

Paramount+ includes over 30,000 episodes and films from ViacomCBS’ brands and production studios, including BET, CBS, Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon, Paramount Pictures and the Smithsonian Channel. But you also have access to originals, like The Good Fight, The Stand and Star Trek: Picard, as well as the new SpongeBob prequel series Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years.


For those who are interested in watching live TV, Paramount+ has you covered.

Sports fans will be delighted with CBS Sports HQ, which offers live events like the NFL on CBS, the PGA Tour and The Masters, NCAA Division 1 Men’s basketball, and lots of soccer action including the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League and UEFA Europa Conference League with exclusive English-language coverage.

For news junkies, Paramount+ is a treasure trove of information. Not only will you get live streams of over 200 local CBS affiliates across the country, you’ll also be able to tune into CBSN, a 24-hour streaming news service.


Here’s what you need to know if you haven’t already signed up for Paramount+. Currently, there are two pricing tiers available to U.S. subscribers. The ad-supported tier, at $5.99, combines all those live sports and breaking news options as well as entertainment spanning Paramount+ originals to the full suite of current and library shows and movies. The premium tier is largely commercial free at $9.99 per month but upgrades you to 4K, HDR and Dolby Vision and mobile downloads.

Looking ahead, there will be a new ad-supported tier available in June for $4.99 per month but it will exclude the local live CBS stations. At that time, the $5.99 option will no longer be available for new users, but existing users will be grandfathered in. You might want to keep that in mind if you enjoy access to live local TV.

Interested in trying Paramount+ before you buy? The normal one-week free trial is now being extended for an entire month if you use the code MOUNTAIN, though this promotion ends March 31.
