How to set up Paramount Plus: A step-by-step guide
Here's how to start streaming your favourite shows and movies with Paramount Plus.
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 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:
- Apple TV
- Android TV/Google TV
- Telstra TV
- Samsung TVs (2017 and newer)
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
Next, follow the prompts on the screen – including entering your personal and payment information – to create your account. New users get a 7-day free trial, so you have a week to determine if the service is for you.
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.
Smartphone or tablet
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.
Note: You can also subscribe to Paramount Plus via Apple Channels. Open the Apple TV app, search for and select Paramount Plus. Then, tap the Try it Free or Subscribe button. You may be asked to sign in with your Apple ID.
On Android TV, navigate on the home screen to select the Play Store. Locate the Paramount Plus app and install it. Then, launch the app and sign in with your credentials.
If you have Google TV, press the Assistant button on your remote or select Search on the home screen. Locate the Paramount Plus app and install it.
To get Paramount Plus working on your Telstra TV, go to the Telstra TV app store and download the app. Enter your login information and start watching.
Press the menu button on your Fetch remote, then navigate to Apps. Search for Paramount Plus and select the app. Log in with your credentials.
Start by making sure that your device is properly set up and you have the Google Home app installed on your mobile device. If all is in order, access the Paramount Plus app from your mobile device and hit the Cast button to watch on your TV.
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.
If you have Chromecast with Google TV, you should be able to find the app on the Apps tab of the home screen. If it doesn't appear, use the search function to locate it. Install the app and sign in with your credentials.
Press the Home button on your remote, select Apps and search for the Paramount Plus app. Install it and log in with your credentials.
Step 5: Start watching
Now that you easily have access to the app, all that's left to do is to watch something. Might we suggest getting started with one of the best shows on Paramount Plus?
Alternative: Get Paramount Plus with Prime Video Channels
With the launch of Prime Video Channels in Australia you can add additional streaming services to your Prime Video subscription, including Paramount Plus. This is meant to simplify the streaming experience, allowing you to enjoy all content from a single app: Prime Video.
The price for the Paramount Plus add-on is the same as for the standalone service, but you will also have to pay for a Prime Video subscription if you don't already have one. It costs $8.99 per month.
A big advantage in getting Paramount Plus via Prime Video Channels is that you will be able to watch content on all the devices Prime Video is compatible with, including game consoles and smart TVs.
