    How did you do it? I'm a current subscriber to CBS All Access but when I login and go to my account there is no option to sign up for Paramount +. It did say to login to Paramountplus.com on the 4th and I tried to login today but there was no link to login only links for new subscribers.

    Thanks,
    Gerry

    I just clicked the option to switch to annual billing and put in the code PARAMOUNTPLUS. Did that on the 21st, 3 days before my free month expired. I assumed it would bill on the 24th, but it happened immediately. Next billing date is 2-21-22.

    And yes, you'll switch over to Paramount+ on the 4th with the same login credentials. HTH

    I did my subscription for a year today with the 50% off the Commercial free.
    I considered doing the Sports Book deal, but I didn't want to mess around with signing up for something else. And then with my luck they would take it away in a few months.

    I'm late to the P+ party, so some help please trying to figure out how to get a year of P+ for $25 (if that's still doable?)

    I have had a CBS all access account, but let it expire last year after Big Brother ended. Should I use that account and use this deal that @krkaufman linked to reinstate the account or do I need a new account for this deal?


    And then after I get the SportsLine working, do this to get 18 months for $25?

    I'm not following were this PARAMOUNTPLUS code is needed? But honestly, I'm not sure I'm following any of this really.:p

    My Apple subscription ended yesterday. CBS is still showing I have a subscription through Apple though.

    You get CBS All Access included as long as you have a SportsLine Pro subscription if you follow the instructions in the prior post. So basically yes.

    The question is whether Paramount Plus will be included with SportsLine Pro.

    You have to do it the way I did.....Go to your account page and therein enter the coupon code. It will take the code but not show a discount. I called CBS support and they said that indicates it has banked the coupon and will discount you 50% at renewal time. It makes sense you cannot apply it now as a new subscriber. I guess it's just a quirk of their system (or their way to try and keep subs going beyond people's current subs)....

    I recently signed up for the 50% off a year deal and then I read this post. I just tried this trick, but it simply cancelled my account. I was not offered an extra three months. I assumed this meant that it just wouldn't auto-renew after the year was up, but there was a message at the top of the screen stating that I would no longer be able to access CBS All Access after my current billing cycle ended on March, 5 2021. This freaked me out, so I clicked the button to reactivate my account.

    I thought the "3 months extra" trick applied to the SportsLine Pro promo; cancel *SportsLine* and you're offered 3 bonus months ... which would extend the associated CBS All Access access by 3 months. (The prior post mentioning the $25 price tag indicates the SportsLine deal was at the core; I'm just not 100% on how the 3 months extra is activated.)

    edit: See here and here. (And it looks like the preemptive cancellation trick may net 6 extra months, rather than 3; though the issue of whether the SportsLine promo for CBSAA will break after March 4th is an open issue.)

    Re: the SportsLine Pro promo... the 'ROLLBACK' promo code is entered at the "ACTIVATE" sign-up stage for SportsLine, after "REGISTER" ... and it was still valid as of 4pm/Eastern.

    Once my credit card was charged and I was at the "ENJOY" stage, I hit the "Offers" tab under my SportsLine account page, and found the CBS All Access offer...

    upload_2021-3-2_15-46-1.png

    Then ... rather than creating a new CBS AA account, I just logged-in to my existing, though dormant, CBS AA account, and now see the following on my CBS AA 'Account' page:

    Subscription & Billing
    It looks like you have a CBS All Access subscription via SportsLine. To make changes to your billing information, please visit www.sportsline.com.
    No clue if the same "login vs create" step would work for a CBSAA account that was still active, but I believe earlier posts indicate that it may. (Also, I initially tried to use my existing CBSAA account email at the "Create" stage of the CBSAA linking process, but it erred as already in use.)


    p.s. And, per earlier posts, SportsLine does indeed seem thirsty, and offered 6 add'l months when I clicked on the 'Cancel Subscription' button on the *SportsLine* "Settings" page.

    So, access to SportsLine and CBSAA for 18 months for $25 (<$1.40/month). Now to see what happens to CBSAA access come March 4th. (Fingers crossed that they don't kill SportsLine in the next 6 months.)

    CBS still hasn’t recognized that my Apple subscription expired a couple of days ago. I’ll give it till tomorrow and if it’s still not picking it up I’ll create a new account.

    Need to be careful thought as Paramount+ goes live at midnight GMT March 4 which is March 3 evening in the US.

    The Paramount+ promo video page would seem to indicate that CBSAA access should smoothly transition to Paramount+ come March 4th...

    This is more curiosity to me, since I don't watch these shows on streaming (since I can't watch faster than realtime).. I am watching the current Challenge eps on MTV though... (sped up on tivo). Though I am glad it's going to be on P+, since I did envision some eon maybe watching the various seasons in the middle that I missed. (even if I can't watch faster than realtime.)

    but is there something extra special about seasons 14 and 32? i.e. can you think of why just those would be excluded?

    So I have CBSAA through Apple sub. Do I need to do anything or will it just convert to Paramount?

    I gave up waiting for CBS to figure out I canceled the Apple subscription and just created a new account and linked it with Sportline.

    The Apple $9.99 for CBS and Showtime is still a good deal, especially if it moves over to Paramount+ as Showtime by itself is $10.99. It’s just not as good a deal as CBS for $1.39 a month (if you don’t care about Showtime).

    If you linked to your CBSAA account, it should just convert. CBS said existing account will seamlessly move over to Paramount Plus. You just need to log into paramountplus.com on March 4th with your existing CBS email and password.

    I’m not sure what will happen exactly with the channel in the Apple TV app. I’m guessing it will just change to Paramount+.

    I would think it might be music rights, but Hulu has 30-32 so that’s definitely not it for 32. Netflix has 10 & 13. There doesn’t appear to be a good reason. Maybe they’ll switch it up once it changes to P+.

    I was hemming and hawing about this, but eventually pulled the trigger on the 1/2 off for a year deal. Hopefully I'll do more than watch The Good Fight. I went for it after listening to a Sepinwall podcast with Gillian Jacobs about her role in the pilot for The Good Wife.

    Side note: I highly recommend Sepinwall's Too Long Didn't Watch podcast: TOO LONG; DIDN'T WATCH

    I jumped on the limited commercial for $30. Movie collection being the main reason.

    I just needed to reboot my Roku and re-sign in, (code incorrectly saying to go to cbs.com/roku — need to go to paramountplus.com/roku)
    Also, Paramount+ is not found in the Roku channel search, CBSAA is still in the search, but the app is P+

    I watched the new Sponge Bob movie on Paramount+ this morning. I've never seen an episode of the TV show, but I think I've seen 2-3 Sponge Bob movies now.

    The transition was seamless. Things just switched over. Curiously, not to bring up that other ongoing thread, but Lastpass doesn't autorecognize the site. I switched my entry to say p+. maybe there's still something under the covers that says CBS
