  • CBS All Access Officially Relaunching as Paramount+ on March

ViacomCBS confirmed today (Jan. 19) plans to launch its Paramount+ streaming service in the USA on March 4, months after the media conglomerate first revealed it would be rebranding CBS All Access to Paramount+.

In addition, the media giant revealed some global distribution plans for Paramount+, announcing the service will debut in the Nordics on March 25 and in Australia in mid-2021.

ViacomCBS will host an investor-focused ViacomCBS Streaming Event on February 24, eight days ahead of the Paramount+ rebrand.
