Paramount Plus will have a 7-day free trial when it launches in Australia tomorrow
The single-plan subscription will also allow for three simultaneous streams.
Since it was first announced that Paramount Plus would be replacing 10 All Access in Australia, we’ve had a lot of questions about the upcoming streaming service. This close to release, there’s still a lot we don’t know about Paramount Plus in Australia, like what devices it will be available on and what happens to existing 10 All Access customers. However, we did manage to get two big questions answered today: will there be a free trial for Paramount Plus? And how many simultaneous streams will each subscription offer?
A Paramount Plus representative has informed us that new users will be eligible for a 7-day free trial of Paramount Plus starting tomorrow. After your first week, you’ll be charged $8.99 per month for your Paramount Plus subscription. Unlike Netflix and Stan, there’s only one plan tier, which offers three simultaneous streams on the one account.
Looking for something new to stream tonight? These services offer free trials so you won't pay a cent unless you decide to keep subscribed once your trial's up.
- BritBox 7-day trial: Best of the Brits, including Doctor Who, Luther, Line of Duty and more
- Binge 2-week trial: Movies and premium drama from HBO, FX and more
- Prime Video 30-day trial: Award-winning originals and shopping perks
- Shudder 7-day trial: Dedicated horror service with blood-curdling originals
Officially launching tomorrow on the 11th of August 2021, Paramount Plus is a new home for the combined streaming efforts of ViacomCBS (the merged entity of, you guessed it, Viacom and CBS). It will live alongside Channel 10’s free-to-air digital catch-up service 10play, offering TV shows, movies and sports (A-League and W-League).
We’ve already had a sneak peek at some of the TV shows and movies that will be streaming at launch but we don’t know the full extent of the library yet, except that it will offer over “20,000 episodes and movies” on day one.
It’s good to know that Australians will be able to test-drive the service tomorrow but we’re still waiting on answers to a few more questions. Will there be 4K titles and offline viewing options? And what does the launch of Paramount Plus in Australia mean for competitors like Stan, which have already begun losing headline Showtime TV shows such as Dexter and Twin Peaks.
We’ll know a lot more tomorrow, that’s for sure. Check back to see our first impressions of Australia’s latest streaming service after tomorrow.
