I think the deal expired when CBS All Access switched to Paramount Plus. If you signed up prior to the name change, you essentially have the deal forever as long as you have an Apple TV+ subscription.

This is stupidely confusing.

Existing bundle subscribers of Paramount+ and Showtime do not have access to the Showtime section of Paramount+. You still need to use two seperate apps.

The new Paramount+ and Showtime bundle is $3.00 more a month and unlocks the Showtime section in the P+ app. This bundle is not available through Apple Channels.

Showtime content has its own section and is also mixed in with TV Show and Movies sections.

This is false. I have access to the Showtime shows on the Paramount+ app.

Maybe it depends on the device that used for streaming.

Same here. The downside is Showtime is available only thru the Apple TV app. The Apple Channels bundle won't unlock the tab in Paramount+ nor can you use the standalone Showtime app.

Are you subbed directly through Paramount+ or are you subbed via AppleTV Channels?

I cannot do the bundle as I am subscribed to Paramount + through the $49 Sportsline promo that gives me 50% off the regular price. It doesn't allow you to do the add-on. I have Showtime separately through their own app.

Maybe not on Showtime, but I can access the P+ app on its own. That's how I'm able to get Atmos sound.

Right... I get the Paramount+ app. Much better experience than the Apple Channels version. It's the new Showtime tab in the standalone Paramount+ app we don't get.

Currently watching P+ on AMZN from the Prime Day deal and kinda hating it. If I do subscribe again, I’ll probably just do P+ directly.

I’ve mostly watched new Star Trek series, but I also saw The Lost City and am currently watching The Good Fight because I was a big fan of the original Wife series. I’d like to try Evil but may not have time in the current window. Not a ton of appealing content for me, unfortunately.

Yep, that's it. Sorry. I'm using the AppleTV set box.

Apple TV+ bundlers... check your subscription pricing. I lost the bundle pricing this month and Apple can't tell me if it's because the bundle pricing ended or because I took advantage of a 3 month free Apple TV+ extension.

I lost it too. It is because of the new P+ & Showtime bundle which negated this deal. Thanks Paramount for the heads up.

I can't believe they didn't tell us... I just checked mine and it's now $20.98...

Here's the new deal via P+ directly and looks to be as good as it's gonna get. I have to wait until the end of the month though:

Premium + SHOWTIME®

With 1 Week FREE
$129.99/year after trial
(That’s $10.83/month)
Ad-free


That comes out to $10.83 per month, which is still .84 cents more ($10 more per year) but better than paying double the usual rate.

*This deal is good until October, I think.

Does it last through the end of October? My bundle doesn't end until Oct. 1st.

I just cancelled my bundle through Apple and I'll try to sign up for the full year deal.

Get Paramount+ and SHOWTIME® together for $30/year more than Paramount+ alone (offer ends 10/2/22). Watch hit originals, movies, docs and sports, all in one place. Plus, SHOWTIME is always commercial free. Try 1 week free!

I better put a reminder on my phone calendar. I might as well sign up through another email address. I tried to go into Paramount + and switch my plan and they just tell me to manage my account via iTunes or Apple TV.

Yeah, you can do it that way. Mine ends in 2 weeks, so I have time enough.

Not surprised with the new bundles out of Paramount. I figured the promo bundle pricing days were numbered. An email would have been nice thou.

I think the only thing I've watched on Showtime has been Yellowjackets... Probably just going to get the annual Paramount+ plan for $99.99.
