Plus point: find out how to add Paramount+

The new Paramount Plus streaming service launches today and, if you have Apple TV, you’ll need to install the appropriate app to watch it. Our guide will show you how to search for and install the app, and how to move it around the Home screen.

What is Paramount Plus?

Paramount joins existing studios, such as Disney, by providing TV and film content via a paid-for streaming service. Paramount owns the franchise for films series such as Mission Impossible, Star Trek and Indiana Jones. TV content is likely to include the Star Trek back catalogue, including the recent series Strange New Worlds which, so far, has not been available in the UK.

If you’re not sure whether you want to pay out more cash for yet another streaming service then they also have a 7 day free trial, which is worth checking out.
