Update 2021-02-25:

Price and launch date in Sweden

Paramount Plus, the new streaming service from Viacom CBS that was presented last autumn and is an international new launch of the American service CBS All Access, has now received a Swedish award and premiere date.

The launch in the Nordics will take place on March 25 and in Sweden the price will be SEK 69 a month, in other words cheaper than Disney Plus but more expensive than Apple TV Plus.

The content is over 6,000 films and series with material from the company’s various subsidiaries such as CBS, Showtime and Paramount Studios. Paramount Plus also has new self-produced series underway, including The First Lady produced by Viola Davis who also stars Michelle Obama, with Michelle Pfeiffer as Betty Ford and Gillian Anderson as Eleanor Roosevelt.

Previously (2020-09-15):

Today was launched Disney Plus with noise and commotion, but if you can not see yourself measured on movies and TV series, we can announce that CBS All Access will be launched in Sweden and other Nordic countries sometime during the first half of 2021.

According to one press release from Viacom CBS the video service will change its name to Paramount Plus in connection with the international launch.

In addition to movies from Paramount, TV series are offered from channels such as CBS, BET and MTV. The big draw will be a long line of Star Trek series, but there will also be talk of a number of original productions.

The name Paramount Plus is already used for a Play library that is offered in Comhem Play Plus, among other places.

– We look forward to relaunching Paramount Plus in the Nordics by adding new and exclusive content to our current offering, something that is attractive to both consumers and our partners. With this relaunch, we will be a major player in the streaming market and an obvious entertainment platform for viewers of all ages, says Jesper Dahl, CEO of Viacom CBS Nordics in a comment.

How much the new Paramount Plus will cost remains to be seen, but the cheapest variant of CBS All Access currently costs $ 5.99 per month.
