The new Paramount Plus streaming service has launched. If you’ve got an Amazon Fire TV device, you’ll first need to install the Paramount Plus app. This guide will show you how to install the app on Fire TV devices.
What is Paramount Plus?
Paramount+ is a streaming service, much like Disney+ and Netflix. Paramount has the rights for films series such as Mission Impossible, Star Trek and Indiana Jones. The TV on offer will likely include the Star Trek back catalogue, which is the first time that would have been made available to viewers in the UK via a streaming service.
At the moment there’s a seven-day free trial so, if you want to check it out before committing any money, this seems like a good bet.
