What We Know About Paramount Plus
Paramount Plus has begun to reveal its secrets at long past. This new streaming service is set to launch in Q1 2019, so while there’s still time before we can start to see what it has in store, we’ve been able to piece together all of the details that are currently available to us. Here’s what we know about Paramount Plus so far.
Paramount Plus Device Options
The recently announced Paramount Plus will have a range of devices for you to use, depending on what you want. The flagship product is the TV set-top box, which will be able to run all of their shows and the live feed from your home. The other products are the mobile app, which you can use to stream the content on your phone and tablet with WiFi or data connection.
It is also available as a web browser plug-in so that you can watch while at work or at school, as well as an HDMI stick that plugs into your TV’s HDMI port. There’s also a keyboardless gaming controller with a built-in touchpad that pairs wirelessly via Bluetooth or USB and a standalone remote control with buttons and a directional pad.
