This Thursday (4) Brazil won a new subscription streaming service. Paramount + arrives to compete with Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney +, Globoplay, Apple TV, HBO Go (future HBO Max) and a few others - in a market that, at least for now, shows no signs of saturation.
The ViacomCBS platform charges a monthly fee of R $ 19,90 to offer content from Paramount and part of the catalog of CBS, Showtime, MTV and Nickelodeon. As it could not be otherwise, the service also has original productions and films added right after the viewing window in theaters.
You can subscribe to streaming directly through the website (through the app on the Fire TV Stick, and soon to Android e iOS), or through a partnership with other distributors, such as distributors such as Apple TV and Amazon Prime Video. The price charged monthly will be the same, and both forms also give the first week free.
What to watch
As the studios that are part of ViacomCBS already had contracts with other streaming platforms in Brazil, part of the Paramount + content could also be found in other services - especially Amazon Prime Video and Globoplay. Series like 'The Handmaid's Tale', 'Dexter', 'The Office', 'iCarly'and' Elementary 'were already available out there.
Other series have even been part of the past catalog of competitors, but they left and are now only at Paramount +, such as 'Californication', 'The Good Wife', 'Twin Peaks' (the original from 1990) and 'Frasier'. Some realities they even have seasons on other platforms, but they have more content on the new service, especially those on MTV, such as 'On Vacation with the Ex', 'Jersey Shore' and 'Are You The One?'.
What will make your investment worthwhile are some of the exclusives, most of Showtime, which until then had not been shown in Brazil. Here comes the next season of 'Dexter', 'The Handmaid's Tale' and some of the Golden Globe nominees (and winners)such as 'Your Honor', 'The Comey Rule', 'The Good Lord Bird', 'Black Monday' and 'Schitt's Creek'.
The series 'The First Lady', which will star Viola Davis and tell the life of former United States first lady Michelle Obama, will also arrive at Paramount +. Among the original productions of the service, are confirmed 'Kamp Koral: SpongeBob's Under Years', spin-off from SpongeBob and the live-action series 'The Astronauts', in addition to a computer graphics version of 'Rugrats'.
