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.
