On September 15, Paramount Plus will be available to all Walmart+ subscribers. But what exactly will the streaming service offer? While many of the details are still up in the air, we do know that Paramount Plus will be much like Hulu in that it will be ad-supported, but you can pay to eliminate those ads through an additional subscription. In this breakdown of what Paramount Plus offers, we’ll look at the basics of what you can expect to see from the subscription service when it launches next month.
How much does it cost?
Pricing for the streaming service is $4.99/month, with a free 30-day trial period. At $4.99/month, Paramount’s subscription service costs just about the same as competitors such as Prime Video and Netflix’s family plan ($8.99). The only difference is that it doesn’t include ads during viewing sessions, which would normally drive up the cost from one to two dollars extra per month. But since it costs less than what most of its competitors charge, Walmart could potentially attract more viewers who don’t want to put their movies on hold because they’re not able to fast forward past commercials.
How do I watch it?
It’s available on the Walmart app, Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV and Chromecast. It’s also available on smart TVs from LG and Samsung. Additionally, it will be coming to Roku at a later date.
Can I use Chromecast or AirPlay to stream from my phone?
Both Chromocast and AirPlay are used to wirelessly display content from a smart device onto a television screen. With Chromecast, you use your phone as the streaming device. There are many benefits to this. You can multitask on your phone while the movie is playing because you don’t have to put it on the TV screen or worry about wire clutter. It’s also great because there’s no need to log in with your password because everything is handled by your TV or mobile devices once set up.
Is there 4K support on this service?
4K is one of the new features that this service offers. Other than 4K content, subscribers will also be able to watch their favorite TV shows, movies, and videos in HDR (or High Dynamic Range). In other words, you’ll have a variety of formats and resolutions to choose from when watching your content on Paramount Plus.
Additionally, with this service you’ll get an expanded library of great content that you won’t find on Netflix or Hulu. This includes series like American Woman and Designated Survivor. And if none of these perks are enough to get you excited about subscribing to the service when it launches in September 2019 then just keep in mind that everything offered will be free with your Walmart+ subscription.
What kind of content should you expect from this service and when can you expect it?
This September, customers who subscribe to the Walmart+ streaming service will have access to Paramount’s content, including studio releases from past and present. Below is a quick list of what you can expect from this service:
- -You’ll be able to stream acclaimed films like Philadelphia or Forrest Gump in addition to blockbuster favorites like Jurassic Park.
- -A large number of movies will be available on day one, with more being added regularly.
- -Movies come in full HD quality at 480p.
- -Many of these movies are available in English, Spanish, French and Portuguese. The language defaults depending on your region but can be changed within the app if needed.
When does the next season of shows premiere on this platform, and how many episodes are there per season?
During the first half of September, only episodes that are new and past seasons will be available. Starting September 16th, there will be 10-episode seasons available. For example, when season 3 of Westworld becomes available on the platform, you’ll have access to episode 1-10 of season 3.
