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+.
