Samsung smart TVs come with some streaming apps preinstalled but not Paramount Plus. Here are the different ways to get the streaming service.By Habeeb OnawolePublishedShareTweetEmail
Samsung's smart TVs come preloaded with multiple apps, including popular streaming ones, but unfortunately not Paramount Plus. Samsung is one of the leading TV brands globally, and its TVs boast lots of impressive features, some of which set the standard for the industry. For example, at Consumer Electronics Show 2021, it announced that new models of its TVs would ship with a remote that charges via solar. Earlier this year, it took things a step further by announcing a remote that charges itself using radio waves from wireless routers.
Paramount Plus is a streaming service owned by ViacomCBS Streaming. When it was first launched in 2014, it was known as CBS All Access before rebranding to its current name following a merger between CBS and Viacom. The service is available in multiple countries, including the United States, where it is available in two plans — a $4.99/month plan with ads and a $9.99/month plan with no ads and support for local live CBS stations.SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

Samsung doesn't ship its TV with Paramount Plus preinstalled but if a TV is compatible, getting the service up and running is quite simple. According to Paramount Plus, the app is available on Samsung smart TVs, released in 2017 or later. To get the Paramount Plus app installed on the TV, press the Home button on the TV remote. It should bring up a menu that shows available movies/TV shows and installed apps. Next, move down to the row of apps and scroll to the far left until the Search icon is visible. Click on it and search for Paramount Plus. The search results should include the app with a download icon on it. Select it and proceed to install. Log in with an existing account or follow the instructions to sign up.
Installing the app from the TV's app store isn't the only way to get Paramount Plus on a Samsung TV. If the TV comes with the Apple TV app pre-installed, then there is no need to install a separate app for Paramount Plus. The Apple TV app comes with select 2018 Samsung TVs but comes standard with models released in 2019 or later. To get Paramount Plus on a TV with the Apple TV app, launch the app and sign in with an Apple ID. Next, select the Watch Now tab and scroll down to Apple TV Channels. Select the Paramount+ Channel and start a free trial. Once the free trial ends, the user will be charged for a subscription under their Apple ID. Paramount Plus advises that Apple TV users verify their account on its website. Doing so and creating a Paramount Plus username and password will allow streaming of the service on the Paramount Plus website or app.
Another option for those with a TV without the Paramount Plus or Apple TV app is via a compatible streaming stick or box or a game console like the PlayStation4/5 or Xbox One and up. These game consoles support the Apple TV app, so users can watch Paramount Plus using the method described above. The Paramount Plus app is available on Android TV via the Google Play Store. It is also available on Fire TV devices and some Roku TV devices. Another option is to mirror or cast a device, such as a phone or a tablet, to Samsung smart TVs.
