Paramount Plus, which replaced 10 All Access in Australia, lets you watch a wide variety of TV shows and movies, as well as kids' content and live sport. If you're interested in the service, you'll be happy to know that signing up is a piece of cake.
Simply follow the steps below and you'll be online in no time.
Step 1: Make sure you have a compatible device
All you need in order to watch content with Paramount Plus is a compatible device and access to the Internet. The service is compatible with several devices, so make sure yours made the list:

Step 2: Visit the Paramount Plus website
To get started, access the Paramount Plus website at paramountplus.com/au and click on the blue Sign up for Paramount+ button. You'll be taken to the sign-up page.
Note: If you already have a 10 All Access account, you can use those credentials to sign in to Paramount Plus.
Step 3: Create your Paramount Plus account

Step 4: Set up Paramount Plus on your devices
Once you have a Paramount Plus account, you can watch from a variety of devices. Here's how to set up the service on each one.
Desktop computer or laptop
This is the most straightforward option. Launch your browser, go to the Paramount Plus website and sign in using the email address and password you set during registration.

To get Paramount Plus on your mobile device, access Google Play or the App Store, select the Paramount Plus app and install it. Then, sign in using your credentials.
The process is similar for other devices too. For instance, to get Paramount Plus on Apple TV, launch the App Store from your TV's home screen to install the app. Then, sign in with your credentials.

Alternatively, you can cast directly from your laptop via the Chrome browser with the Google Cast extension. Simply access Paramount Plus using the browser and hit the Cast icon.
