How to get the 7-day Paramount Plus free trial: A step-by-step guide

Find out how to sign up to Paramount Plus in Australia and stream its vast library of content for free.

Paramount+ 7-day free trial

Paramount Plus offers a wide collection of TV shows and movies as well as sport and kids' content. If you're unsure whether Paramount Plus would be a good fit for you, the platform offers a free 7-day trial.

You can give it all a test drive, sample some content and make a more informed decision. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to sign up.


Try Paramount+ free for 7 days

Watch series and films from Paramount, Showtime, MTV, CBS, Nickelodeon and more. Once the free trial is completed, Paramount Plus costs start at $9.99 per month.

How do I get the Paramount Plus free trial?

Signing up to Paramount Plus isn't much different from creating an account on similar platforms and shouldn't take you more than a few minutes. On your desktop or mobile device, follow these steps:

  1. You can sign up for Paramount Plus here and then proceed by clicking on the blue "Sign up for Paramount+" button.
    Step 1
  2. Click "Continue" to create your account.
    Step 2
  3. Enter your full name and email address and then choose a strong password. Tick the box if you want to receive email updates from Paramount Plus. Read the terms of use and privacy policy, then click "Agree & Continue".
    Step 3
  4. Click "Continue".
    Step 4
  5. Select whether you want the Standard or Premium plan. Other than price, the only difference between the 2 is that the Premium plan has 4K capability and allows you to watch on 4 devices at once. Choose which one better suits your circumstances. Don't worry – no matter which you choose, both come with the 7-day free trial.

  6. Decide whether you want a month to month commitment or if you want to sign up for a year. Although the annual plan is a bigger upfront payment, you get a discount on the regular monthly cost.

  7. Enter in the details for your payment method. Read the remaining terms and if they're okay by you, click "Agree & Subscribe".
    Step 6
  8. Congratulations! You can now start streaming.

You can also sign up via the Paramount Plus app on your preferred device as long as it's compatible.

If you're not enjoying the service, remember to cancel your subscription before the 7 days are up or it will automatically renew and your card will be charged. We recommend setting up a reminder or alarm for the day before your free trial expires so you can take action in a timely manner.

What does the Paramount Plus free trial let you watch?

You can watch anything and as much as you want from the Paramount Plus library during your free week. We recommend checking out one of the best shows on Paramount Plus as a start or the best movies on the service, but the library is generous enough that we're sure you'll find something to watch.

Paramount Plus is also a great place if you're a local football fan, being the home of the A-League Men and Women, FA Cup and Socceroos and Matildas matches among others.

You can look at all of the shows and movies on the service with our guides below.

Is there a catch?

Like with all free trials, your card will be billed once the 7 days are up. Subscriptions to Paramount Plus in Australia cost $9.99 a month. That's a fair price considering the library, but make sure there are enough shows and movies you're interested in. We've included the full list of TV shows and movies on Paramount Plus above so you can check for your favourites.

On the same note, streaming video burns through a lot of data. If you're on Wi-Fi, that shouldn't be a problem, but if you stream with mobile data, you might end up blowing through your allowance rather quickly.

Paramount Plus supports offline viewing, so it would be best to download content on your mobile device if you're keen to watch something when out and about.
