Mine does. Do you have the add-free tier currently?

"As part of the name change, you now have access to Showtime programming on Paramount+ in addition to all the benefits already available to Premium plan subscribers". Price increase will happen at the time of my next renewal.

For me it does.
As of today, the Paramount+ Premium plan is now called Paramount+ with SHOWTIME®, and costs $119.99/year. As part of the name change, you now have access to SHOWTIME programming on Paramount+ (commercial free!), in addition to all the benefits already available to Premium plan subscribers.The new price will apply to current subscribers starting with your first subscription renewal on or after July 27, 2023.No further action is required on your part if you wish to keep your Paramount+ with SHOWTIME plan. The payment method tied to your account will be charged the new price unless you cancel before your next renewal date on or after July 27, 2023.

Re: Paramount+ with Showtime - ViacomCBS streaming service

I thought for sure the changes today adding Showtime would finally be what kicked me off... but nope. I had that old $9.99 Apple TV bundle of Paramount+ and Showtime. When they did away with the bundle discount back in September I cancelled thru Apple and was going to resubscribe directly with Paramount+. It never got updated between them and without using a different email I can't subscribe directly with Paramount+. Apple thinks I cancelled and Paramount thinks I'm billed thru Apple. I never got the Showtime content as it said it combo wasn't available thru Apple Channels.

Today I have the full Paramount+/Showtime package and Paramount+ still thinks Apple is billing me.

Wow, I'm currently subscribed through Sportsline.com through August and all the Showtime content was unlocked for me today. Totally not expected.

I need to remember to make sure that Sportsline doesn't renew.

I just checked Sportsline and it was suppose to renew July 31st, but looks like it got extended to October 31st. Now sure why they gave me a 3 month extension, but okay.

Blood and Treasure was also among the purged titles. I never finished the 2nd and final season. The long delay after COVID and it being dumped to Paramount + with no chance of renewal kind of killed my interest.

Paramount Plus has to be the most overrated streaming service.

I watch it way more than Peacock or AMC+.

Add Hulu to that but that is only because I have the version with ads. It makes me hate watching anything on it, but I get it free so whatever. It works in a pinch.

I disagree. It is probably my most watched service. Me for the Trek stuff and B&B. My wife and I also watch many of the CBS shows on there because the PQ/SQ is so much better than YTTV and no commercials to deal with.

Yeah I watch a lot of Paramount +. ^^ Like him, I prefer to watch CBS shows on there as opposed to the DVR.

and I have watched most of the P+ originals that I'm interested in, including the Taylor Sheridan shows.

The movie collection is a nice complement to the HBO app too.

Re: Paramount+ with Showtime - ViacomCBS streaming service

I received the email also stating our $99/yr is going to $119/yr and that all Showtime content is included. If I go to my account in the website it states Paramount+ Showtime, rate $99 renewing Feb next year. Only difference from days ago is the "+Showtime". So now we'll see in Feb if it is actually $99 or $119.

That sucks. It was a fun show I would have revisited at some point.

Re: Paramount+ with Showtime - ViacomCBS streaming service

Has it been stated what happens if you subscribe to Showtime (to be rebranded) through your cable subscription? Will you have access to content like you currently do through Showtime Anytime?

It's still there (or it came right back?).
It's in the Classic Showtime tab.

Nope. It's now either Paramount+ Essential, or Paramount+ with SHOWTIME.

They have not finalized or announced plans yet for rebranding the linear service, but that will be coming later this year. Till then, it's service as normal:

In the meantime Showtime linear (and its Showtime Anytime streaming app) should continue as normal. The Hulu add-on Showtime service is technically Showtime linear, so for you, lacubs, there should be no change at this time. For anyone that has Showtime through Prime Video Channels, Apple TV Channels, or YouTube TV, that is also Showtime linear.

They removed it…and now they’ve re-added it, but only the first 8 seasons so far.

I guess they pulled the recently-cancelled American Gigolo series from the service already. It wasn't good, but it wasn't terrible and shouldn't have been disappeared already.

Never got around to it. Bummer since it was in my queue.
