New signups can get a bundle featuring the partially ad-supported Paramount Plus Essentials (regularly $4.99 a month) and Showtime (which goes for $10.99 a month) for $9.99 a month. 

Prospective subscribers can also choose to bundle the ad-free Paramount Plus Premium ($9.99) with Showtime for $12.99. 

Both discounts amount to 38% off the regular monthly rate for the two SVOD platforms.
