Walmart and Paramount Team Up to Take Down Amazon Prime

Walmart and Paramount are teaming up to bring you a subscription service that could rival Amazon Prime.

Soon, Walmart Plus subscribers will receive a subscription to Paramount Plus Essential at no additional cost. In addition, Walmart Plus currently costs $98 a year and, according to the Press release (opens in new tab) the price will not change after Paramount Plus is added to the package.

The move will likely help Walmart position Walmart Plus as a worthy alternative to Amazon Prime, which attracts subscribers not just with Prime’s free delivery perk, but with Prime Video’s suite of shows and movies, among other benefits.

The Essential level of Paramount Plus usually costs $49.99 per year (after a week-long trial) and includes access to shows like the Halo TV series, Star Trek: Picard and iCarly, NFL matches via CBS live, live football matches including the Champions League and access to 24/7 CBSN news coverage. However, it does come with ads and you can’t download shows to watch them offline later – for these benefits you’ll need to upgrade to Paramount Plus Premium.
