For years now, when someone uploads a video of Star Trek The Next Generation, you will see an option to buy that episode and watch it on YouTube. Now it seems Google has partnered with Paramount to instead promote Paramount+ as an option to watch Star Trek.
This is a great marketing tool for Paramount+, as thousands of user-created Star Trek videos are uploaded every month. Now these user-created videos are ads for Paramount+.
Here is an example of one of these ads:
Sadly there is no special deal to subscribe to Paramount+ through YouTube. Its still just a 7-day free trial, and the $9.99 offer for the ad-free option.
It will be interesting to see how many other companies partner with YouTube int he same way Paramount has.
Back in May, Paramount+ officially announced that it will be raising its price when it adds Showtime content on June 27th, 2023. This means your next bill after June 27th, 2023, will be higher.
When that happens, Paramount+ will be raising the price of its service by $1 to $2 a month account for the new Showtime content. The ad-supported plan will go up to $5.99 a month, and the ad-free version will go up to $11.99 a month.
The good news is there is a way around this. If you pre-pay for a year of the service now, you can avoid this by prepaying for the yearly membership. Right now, if you switch to yearly Paramount+ or signup for it, you can get the ad-supported plan for just $49.99 a year ($4.17 a month) or the ad-free plan for $99.99 a year ($8.33 a month) if you prepay for the year.
You do need to hurry as we don’t know how long Paramount+ will be offering the current pricing to new subscribers.
