One of the cheapest ways to watch content from streaming apps on the TV is with Chromecast. You can use it to cast content from your iOS or Android mobile device to a TV.

Start by setting up the Paramount Plus app on your mobile device and create an account or sign in. If your Chromecast isn't up and running yet, take the time to set it up.

When that's done, locate the episode or movie you want to watch from the Paramount Plus app, open the content and tap on the Cast icon near the top corner of your screen. Finally, select your TV from the list of available devices and watch on your TV.

If you have Chromecast with Google TV, simply install the Paramount Plus app, launch it and start watching. You can also cast from a laptop with the Google Chrome browser and the Google Cast extension.

Stream Paramount Plus with Apple TV

Launch the App Store on your Apple TV, search for the Paramount Plus app and install it. When that's done, launch the app and log in with your credentials.

Alternatively, you can subscribe to Paramount Plus directly via Apple Channels if you prefer your content all in 1 app. Open the Apple TV app, search for and select Paramount Plus, sign up and start streaming.

Stream Paramount Plus with Android TV

If you have Android TV, navigate to the Play Store, locate the Paramount Plus app and install it. Then, launch the app, sign in and start streaming. For Google TV, press the Assistant button on your remote or select Search on the home screen. Find the Paramount Plus app and install it.

Stream Paramount Plus with Telstra TV

Go to the Telstra TV app store and download the Paramount Plus app. Enter your login information and start watching.

Stream Paramount Plus with Fetch TV

Press the menu button on your Fetch remote and navigate to Apps. Search for Paramount Plus and select the app. Then, log in with your credentials.

Watch Paramount Plus with an HDMI connection

If all else fails, you can try the old-school option and connect a computer to your TV by using an HDMI cable.

Switch your TV to the appropriate HDMI input and the content on your laptop should appear on your TV. You can also connect a smartphone or tablet to your TV and do the same thing by using an HDMI adapter.
