Previously, the company announced Paramount+ as a rebrand of the company’s current streaming service, CBS All Access. It will feature content from ViacomCBS’ portfolio of broadcast, news, sports, and its popular entertainment brands, like MTV, BET, Comedy Central, CBS, Nickelodeon, and Smithsonian Channel. Additionally, the service will feature movies from Paramount Pictures.

“The Paramount brand is known and loved all around the world, and is synonymous with great entertainment. It’s always brought people together, which makes it a perfect fit for a streaming service that’s uniquely positioned to do the same,” says Josh Line, chief brand officer, ViacomCBS. “The Paramount+ streaming service will elevate ViacomCBS’ iconic family of brands.”
