Viacom CBS has announced details of its rebranding of it’s streaming service, CBS Access, to Paramount+, will launch in the U.S. on Thursday, March 4th, 2021.

ViacomCBS will also bring Paramount+ to international markets with initial debuts in Latin America on March 4th, 2021; the Nordics on March 25th, 2021; and Australia in mid-2021. The CBS All Access service in Canada will be rebranded to Paramount+ on March 4th, 2021, and an expanded offering will be available later in the year.

Paramount+ will include content from a variety of different brands including Nickelodeon, MTV, BET and Comedy Central.  Much like Disney+, these brand will all have their own hubs within the app.  There are over 30,000 titles already available on CBS Access and more original programming is also on the way.


An investor day event will be taking place on Wednesday, February 24th, 2021 and will see Viacom CBS lay out its streaming strategy, including Paramount+, Pluto TV, and SHOWTIME OTT.

Paramount+ will be the home of the four Indiana Jones movies, since while those films were made by Lucasfilm, they are distributed by Paramount Pictures.  Which is why they aren’t available on Disney+.

    Can't really see it working in the UK unless they revamp C5 alongside it considering they own the licence for C5. Plus as far as I am aware, NCIS, one of its main properties, its rights are shared between Sky (Comcast) for NCIS LA and FX (Disney) for NCIS and NCIS: New Orleans at least for the latest seasons with the older seasons of NCIS being shown on Paramount, C5, 5 USA, 5 Star etc. As for Star Trek, this is currently being shared on Netflix which has ST Discovery, TOS, TNG, DS9, VOY, Enterprise and the animated series with Amazon having Picard with the movies currently being PVOD As for (Last Airbender not the Pandora one) that has only just shown up on Netflix in UK. CSI as far as I can recall is currently showing on The Sony Channel. Criminal Minds is currently stuck on Sky Witness. As for the rest, especially the films, they are going to have their work cut out for them to put everything onto the Paramount+ network assuming of course that is the plan for the UK. Wouldn't surprise me if Paramount+ doesn't come to the UK until 2022/23 at the earliest, then again I have been wrong before :)
