Walmart+ members will get free TV streaming service

Soon, Walmart+ subscribers will have free access to the Paramount+ streaming service.

The retailer announced on Monday that those who have Walmart+ Subscriptions will be able to stream the Paramount + Essential plan for free starting in September.

The streaming service offers popular programming ranging from exclusive shows like “1883” and “Star Trek: Discovery” to “PAW Patrol” and live sports.

The Paramount+ Essential plan normally costs $4.99 per month or $49.99 per year. It’s the cheaper of the two main Paramount+ plans because it includes limited ads.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Walmart and Paramount Global have entered into a 12-month exclusivity agreement as well as a two-year deal that allows Walmart+ members access to the ad-supported streaming service.

In a Press releaseChris Cracchiolo, senior vice president and general manager of Walmart+, says:

“Eighty-five percent of US households use streaming services and Paramount+ has the premium content and broad appeal our members are looking for – like Walmart, they have something for everyone.”

In addition to free streaming, Walmart+ comes with several other perksincluding free next day and next day delivery with no minimum as well as gas discounts.

A Walmart+ subscription costs $12.95 per month or $98 per year.

While free access to Paramount+ is a big plus, it’s not the only way to watch streaming entertainment for free. For more, check out “17 Completely Free Streaming Services”.
