The new name will debut in 2021 and the company revealed its logo design for the service Sept. 14, 2020.
CBS All Access originally launched in 2014 with a selection of content from the network’s archive as well as original programming.
Earlier this summer, the service added content from across the ViacomCBS kingdom following the re-merger of CBS and Viacom in 2019.
In addition to the new name, Paramount+ will see a boost in original content production.
Five new series were announced Sept. 14, 2020 — including new versions of “The Game” from BET and MTV’s “Behind the Music.”
There will also be a limited series called “The Offer” that will take viewers behind the scenes of the making of “The Godfather” film. It will be 10 episodes.
Popular CBS series “Criminal Minds” will live on in the form of a true crime documentary series titled “The Real Criminal Minds.”
“Lioness” will also be added — from “Yellowstone” creator Taylor Sheridan. The series takes its name from a CIA program and will feature a dramatized version of it.
Paramount+ did not include any pricing information in the announcement, although previous reporting by Deadline indicated there was no plan to change the price.
All Access currently costs $5.99 a month with limited ads or $9.99 to remove ads. That’s one of the cheaper streaming options. Disney+ offers a full ad free version for just one dollar more.
