Paramount Plus is live in Australia, replacing the 10 All Access platform. The new service comes with more content and offers a competitive price, which makes it more than worthy of your attention. But is it compatible with a smart TV?

Unfortunately, Paramount Plus is not currently available natively on smart TVs, so you won't find a Paramount Plus app on your Samsung or LG model. Apps for smart TVs should come in the near future, but there's no word on a time frame just yet.

The good news is the service is compatible with Android TV – and since Android TVs can connect to the Internet and run apps, that technically falls under the smart umbrella.

So if you have a TV model that runs on Android TV, you can install the Paramount Plus app in minutes and enjoy watching shows and movies on the big screen. Here's how.

Deal

Try Paramount+ FREE for 7 days

Watch series and films from Paramount, Showtime, MTV, CBS, Nickelodeon and more. Once free trial is completed Paramount+ costs $8.99 per month.

Step 1: Download the Paramount Plus app

Go to the Home Screen on your Android TV, scroll to Apps and launch Google Play. Search for Paramount Plus. Select Install.

Step 2: Sign in or create an account

Next, launch the app. If you already have a Paramount Plus account, enter your login information. If you previously had a 10 All Access subscription, you can use those credentials to log in as well.

Otherwise, you'll need to create an account. Select Sign Up and follow the on-screen prompts. You'll need to enter your personal and payment information. Paramount Plus comes with a 7-day free trial, so you have an entire week to decide if the service is right for you before your card gets billed.

Step 3: Start watching

Once logged in, all that's left to do is to browse the library and settle on something to watch. We have a list of the best shows on Paramount Plus and the best movies to watch to get you started.

Alternatively, you can subscribe to Paramount Plus via Apple TV Channels. In that case, you watch Paramount content directly in your Apple TV app, which is compatible with smart TVs – including models from Sony, Samsung and LG.

If you don't have Android TV or the Apple TV app, you can still stream Paramount Plus content on a variety of devices and even watch on the big screen. Still keen for more info on these streaming choices? Check out our comparison of Paramount Plus vs Foxtel and Binge.
