Don't risk forgetting to cancel and winding up with an unwanted charge on your account. DoNotPay can help you start a with a virtual credit card, so you can enjoy your trial without worry or hassle.

Does Paramount Plus Offer a Free Trial?

Paramount offers a free trial. You can sign up for a 7-day trial of their Essential or Premium service if you are a new subscriber. Both services offer the NFL on CBS, major soccer games, thousands of shows and movies, and around-the-clock live news with CBSN. From there, Premium offers a few additional perks:

  • No ads except on live TV and select shows (Essential includes limited ads)
  • Your local CBS station
  • More live sports
  • The ability to download your favorite shows to watch later

How to Sign Up for a Paramount Plus Free Trial

It's easy to sign up for a :

  1. Visit the Paramount Plus sign up page.
  2. Choose the Essential or Premium service, each of which comes with a free 7-day trial, and whether you prefer monthly or annual billing.
  3. Create an account with your name, email address, and password.
  4. Enter your credit card information.
  5. Click "Start Paramount".

Does the Paramount Plus Trial Automatically Renew Into a Subscription?

If you decide you don't want a subscription, you need to cancel before your free trial is over. Otherwise, you'll be charged for your first month or for the entire year, depending upon whether you chose the monthly or annual payment option.

If you're afraid you might forget to cancel, you'll probably want to choose the monthly billing option when you sign up for your trial. That way, if you get charged, it's a much smaller amount and you can still cancel before you get charged for your second month. If you choose the annual option and get charged for the whole year, you won't be able to get a refund—though you will have a full year of Paramount Plus to enjoy.

This is how to cancel Paramount Plus:

  1. Go to the Paramount Plus website.
  2. Click your user initials in the upper right corner.
  3. Choose "Account".
  4. Click "Cancel Subscription".

What Does a Paramount Plus Subscription Cost?
