Paramount Plus, Amazon, Hulu, Netflix, DirecTV, and the list could go on and on. There simply is no shortage of streaming providers available today. If there’s a big name in entertainment, viewers can rest assured that they’ve got some streaming service, previously had one, or will eventually get one. To make matters even more confusing and trickier, these providers offer different viewing options.
It’s not like a viewer can get Paramount Plus and enjoy all the shows that Amazon offers. Yes, viewers will find some shows available across all streaming platforms, but some are exclusively mutual. In the streaming industry, these have become known as Originals. Paramount Plus has its own Originals, Amazon offers its own Originals, and viewers probably see the marketing plow.
In addition to offering varying platforms, various perks, and fluctuating membership fees, there are a ton of things to consider before signing those streaming right away. Well, it’s not like a viewer can’t sign up for multiple memberships or rotate between providers monthly or yearly. However, with the numerous usernames, passwords, and bills most average people already have, this would only complicate life. It comes down to the question, “Who’s the ultimate streaming provider?”
While there is certainly no easy or truly honest way to answer that, news sources indicate that Paramount Plus might offer the biggest bang for the buck. Although the answer ultimately comes down to a viewer’s preferences, it will make the decision easier to lay out what the provider offers.
Tried And Tested
Any viewer that tunes into nearly any movie or TV show today will catch that iconic sequence of the Paramount logo loading up. It’s the one that typically starts right after the gold Fox Entertainment spiel. Paramount’s logo is the one with a blue background and white stars behind the mountain. Streamers can see the logo build and feel the excitement and intrigue as the stars race across the screen and enclose to build around the logo.
To put it as simply as possible, the introduction to the logo has become a staple over the years and one that all longtime viewers are more than familiar with. Well, that’s the same Paramount Company offering today’s streaming services. Despite what many might believe Paramount is far from the new kids on the entertainment block. They’ve been entertaining viewers long before viewers even began to care which company was delivering their entertainment.
Even more interesting, Paramount isn’t new to the streaming industry either. Many viewers think because they’ve adopted a new name and different platform they are new. What most viewers don’t know is that Paramount Plus actually started as CBS All Access. It wasn’t until a rebranding and redesign campaign that the company adopted the name Paramount Plus. This transformation occurred in March 2021 and allowed for a whole new revamping of its current platform.
How Technology Enhanced Mobile Streaming
As the world of technology is continuously evolving, consumers remain on the lookout for new and exciting products. While video streaming is far from novel, it is by far one of the most convenient ways to watch movies, TV series, and music videos. Whatever the case may be, video streaming is not going anywhere for some time. At least, Hulu, Amazon Studios, and Netflix hope not.
Mobile streaming requires a unique type of technology, such as a compatible mobile app and mobile device. Streaming video games, such as the 2012 Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, requires significant technology. Fortunately, video game developers have been listening which they validated with the introduction of mobile gaming apps. Players not only play games but sell skins CSGO via their mobile apps thanks to mobile technology.
It was a whole new name and facelift, which should indicate the vote of confidence the subsidiary has from its parent company, Paramount (also known for as time as ViacomCBS). The biggest and most important avenue of change this rebranding afforded the company was its platform. It’s not just the old CBS reruns or classics and few originals that viewers are privy to anymore. The company was now allowed to adopt and offer new content in the same fashion that any streaming company offers content today. The company grew into its own version of Netflix or Hulu.
Now with that in mind, the streaming service is still somewhat just a young, developing toddler. They’ve got hard-hitting sports action, plenty of originals to claim as their own, and a deep, diverse library to delve into when there is nothing new, but viewers will soon see they are still developing.
