The Premium plan allows you to stream Paramount+ commercial-free and gives you access to your local live CBS channel. Please note that live TV streams have commercials, and a few shows include brief promotional spots/ads to keep you in the loop on new and upcoming Paramount+ programming.
The Essential plan allows you to stream Paramount+ with limited commercials; however, this plan does not include access to your local live CBS channel.
When you subscribe to the Paramount+ with SHOWTIME bundle, both the Premium and Essential plans include SHOWTIME, which is always commercial-free.
For more information on the Premium and Essential plans, please visit the Paramount+ Help Center.
