Paramount+ now in Australia, priced at $8.99 AUD/month

Is it worth it right now? Probably not.

Paramount+ is now available within Australia, priced at $8.99 AUD/month or $89.99 AUD/year.

Users can sign up today and receive a 7-day trial of the service, which offers up programming from CBS, Viacom, Paramount, Showtime, Nickelodeon and more.

While series like South Park, Penny Dreadful, Twin Peaks, Dexter and films like A Quiet Place, Anchorman, Good Will Hunting and more are already on the service, there are a number of notable gaps. Chief among them is a lack of most Star Trek content — only Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek Into Darkness are available on the service, with absolutely zero Star Trek television series on offer.

Over in the USA, Paramount+ is the home for shows like Star Trek Discovery, Star Trek Picard, Star Trek Lower Decks and the upcoming Star Trek Prodigy, but it’s likely Australians will still need to tap into services like Netflix (Discovery) and Amazon Prime Video (Lower Decks, Picard) until Paramount claws back licenses. That said, it’s probably Prodigy will debut on Paramount’s new service.

At the moment, we’re unsure if the asking price of Paramount+ justifies the service. What do you think? Sound off in the comments below letting us know what you think.
