CBS All Access Will Be Renamed as Paramount Plus
Now it’s just a matter of time before we hear of Peacock Plus.
ViacomCBS announced earlier this week they will be rebranding their streaming platform, CBS All Access, as Paramount+, and that they will be expanding into the Nordics and Latin America, as well as rebranding 10 All Access in Australia as a new supersized premium version of Paramount+ which will include SHOWTIME and CBS All Acess Original Series premieres, Paramount+ originals, and much more.
David Lynn, President and CEO of ViacomCBS Networks International, said in a statement:
“With the global launch of Paramount+ we are poised to become as powerful a player in streaming as we are in TV. VCNI is focused on building a meaningful, global brand presence in our key markets, generating material advertising, subscription and licensing revenue from streaming. By leveraging the iconic Paramount brand, leading edge infrastructure from ViacomCBS along with an incredible, super-sized pipeline of must-see content, Paramount+ will deliver an exceptional consumer entertainment experience and significantly disrupt the streaming industry.”
On international markets, Paramount+ subscribers will have exclusive access to SHOWTIME premieres like First Ladies, starring Viola Davis as Michelle Obama, Halo, and American Rust. Paramount+ will also premiere CBS All Access shows like Guilty Party and Harper House. Additionally, the company has announced several exclusive pieces of content to Paramount+ that include:
- The Offer: a 10-episode limited event about the making of The Godfather, written and executive produced by Michael Tolkin (Escape at Dannemora and The Player), and based on Oscar-winning producer Al Ruddy’s experiences. He will executive produce the series, along with Leslie Greif, who will also act as a writer.
- Lioness: a spy drama created by Taylor Sheridan (Yellowstone) with Sheridan, Jill Wagner, David Glasser, David Hutkin, and Bob Yari set to executive produce. Based on a real-life CIA program, Lioness follows a young Marine recruited to befriend the daughter of a terrorist to bring the organization down from within.
- MTV’s Behind the Music – The Top 40: The Emmy nominated show is back for a unique and intimate look at the 40 biggest artists of all time.
Miguel Fernández is a Spanish student that has movies as his second passion in life. His favorite movie of all time is The Lord of the Rings, but he is also a huge Star Wars fan. However, fantasy movies are not his only cup of tea, as authors like Scorsese, Fincher, Kubrick or Hitchcock have been an obsession for him since he started to understand the language of filmmaking. He is that guy who will watch a black and white movie, just because it is in black and white.
