Newly merged Viacom-CBS is planning to launch a streaming service that will combine CBS All Access with other Viacom assets, a person familiar with the company’s plans confirmed to Deadline.

Programming from Pluto TV, Nickelodeon, BET, MTV, Comedy Central and Paramount Pictures would be combined with that of All Access and Showtime. The company plans to lift the veil on certain details about the offering on February 20, when it releases its first quarterly earnings since completing the merger in December.

The new service would be differentiated product from what exists now. It would combine sports, news live viewing and the full breadth and depth of the company’s expanded portfolio across demos, genres and geographies, insiders indicate.

There would be an ad-free version and a premium version that includes Showtime. There’s been no final decision, name or price, although it would likely be less than $10 a month for the basic tier.

CBS All Access is growing to become a much larger service, and ViacomCBS feels a rebrand is necessary to match. It’s renaming the expanded streaming service to Paramount Plus in early 2021 to reflect its wider scope — and, we’d add, better compete with rivals.

The fuller service will include movies and shows from a wider range of channels and studios, including Paramount, BET, and MTV. You can also expect breaking news, live sports, and “premium entertainment” that includes more streaming-only originals. Paramount Plus is getting five new originals as part of the announcement, including a miniseries based on the making of “The Godfather” (“The Offer”), the spy drama “Lioness,” a rethink of MTV’s “Behind the Music” (“Behind the Music – The Top 40”), the true crime documentary series “The Real Criminal Minds,” and a BET revival of “The Game.”

The expanded CBS All Access will be renamed Paramount Plus

Do they have any plans on launching it in India ?
No plans as of now. They are launching in North and South American countries for now.

I wish it had launch in India or shared it's content with Voot. I miss shows like The Amazing Race and Survivor which has permanently left tv when AXN shut down.
