This truly is an era of streaming services. We have so many options on our hands that it’s hard to pick the right one. The ideal scenario would be to subscribe to all of them, but that’s not cost-effective. Many of us can only afford streaming services.
For years Netflix was a leader in this domain. But, in recent years, competitions have started to emerge, and today we have a few quality options. One of the younger options in the streaming universe is Paramount Plus.
This option was launched only two years ago in its current form. It quickly attracted subscribers, and the number will grow with its quality and large database. But, as we said, there are a few other players in the streaming multiverse. In this article, we will compare Paramount Plus to its adversaries.
Peacock vs. Paramount
These two streaming options have a lot in common. They also pose a few differences. Unlike domain leader Netflix, they also offer live TV and sports content.
As far as the price goes, they cost equally, and both start at $4.99 a month. What makes Paramount a better starting option is a 7-day free trial. Peacock doesn’t offer this. In terms of their libraries, both streamers have plenty to offer. Peacock comes from the NBC family, while Paramount Plus is tied to CBS. So, both carry on the will of these networks. At the moment, Peacock is a richer streamer with over 80 thousand hours of streaming. Paramount Plus stands at only 40 thousand hours at the moment.
What makes both rather special is their live TV and sports offering. While Peacock can brag with SNF and Premier League, Paramount + took on the Champions League and Serie A. The bottom line is that both are quality services. Regarding the price, you’ll get more content with Peacock. But with a free trial and better interface, Paramount Plus wins those fields. The bottom line is that it all equals a win-win situation when you decide what you want to watch.
Paramount Plus vs. HBO Max
As we said, content is king for services that operate in the streaming universe. While Paramount Plus is undoubtedly on the upswing, at the moment, HBO Max has a more extensive database with more original content. Where our other player stands out, Paramount takes a light advantage with its live offering.
In terms of cost, Paramount Plus has two options. Standard is only $4.99 a month, while premium comes at $9.99. HBO Max offers two options, too, divided by the amount of ads. With ads, it’s 7.99, while ad-less options are $11.99. both are compatible with most devices, including iOS and Android, and various smart TV options.
So, the decision is all left to you. Both come at fair prices, offer high-end quality streaming, are available on mobile, and three devices are available for parallel streaming. All that is left to decide is do you want to view first The Godfather trilogy or The Sopranos.
Paramount Plus vs. Netflix
While Netflix is on a downward spiral compared to its old self, it is still going strong. We already told you everything about the cost of Paramount +.
On the other hand, you have Netflix, with its packages varying from $6.99 up to $22.99 monthly ferries all depending on what you decide to pick. Netflix is worth all of it. It owns more than 2500 series and over 4 thousand films. This is much more than what Paramount Plus has to offer now.
Netflix doesn’t offer any live programs. If you’re a fan of soccer and the NFL, Paramount Plus will a choice be more appealing to you.
In terms of interface and streaming devices, Netflix takes a large win. After all, it has been on the market for longer and it had more time to adapt. Paramount Plus will work hard in these departments in the coming years.
At the moment, Netflix is a better option in almost all departments. But you have a 7-day free trial that Paramount Plus offers, so check it out and decide for yourself.
Paramount Plus vs. Disney Plus
As we said, the streaming universe is becoming quite saturated. So, it’s no wonder we have Disney+ trying to find its place in the spotlight. While quite young as a streaming service, we are all aware of what Disney is.
One of the biggest companies in the industry has one of the best, if not the best, streaming services out there with a massive database. Its price is also relatively fair. It comes at $7.99. For this price, you’ll receive all of the Disney originals titles, such as Frozen.
In addition, they own the rights to the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Star Wars movies, and Pixar titles. It’s hard to compare to this. Currently, the field where Paramount Plus leads the race is the number of TV shows and their episodes. Disney currently stands at 7,500 episodes with titles like The Simpsons, while Paramount has over 20,000 and can brag with the entire CBS catalog.
As far as their original content is concerned, Paramount Plus is focused on Star Trek titles while Disney+ is printing out Star Wars materials such as Andor and Ahsoka and pieces of MCU such as Loki and Hawkeye.
While Disney+ takes the win on paper, it is all a matter of preferences and tastes. What do you want to watch? Paramount Plus’s biggest win over Disney Plus and any other service is the 7-day free trial. That way, you can see what you’re buying before paying down.
