How to Get Paramount Plus on Android TV

Paramount Plus comes as a native Android app. And yes – it also has a version optimized for large-screen TVs. With that said, you’ll need to go through the following steps to install Paramount Plus on your Android TV. 

  • First, don’t forget to sign up for Paramount Plus (7 days free).
  • Then, turn to your Android TV device for the rest of this procedure. 
  • Start from your Android TV’s home screen and navigate to the 'Play Store' app.
  • Use the search button/bar to look up 'Paramount Plus.' 
  • Select the app's icon, and you will see its overview/description. Select 'Get' or 'Install.' 
  • Then, return to your home screen and launch the newly installed app.

Can I Stream Paramount+ in 4K/HDR on Android TV? 

Yes, Paramount+ offers a selection of titles in 4K & HDR. At the moment, around fifty titles come in this resolution, so we're not talking about a vast library of content.

Keep in mind that you need a 'Premium' subscription to Paramount Plus, priced at $9.99 per month, if you wish to access 4K content. And, of course, make sure to have a capable device if you plan on streaming in 4K.

That means your media streaming device and your TV should be capable of streaming 4K (HDR) content. And also, having a fast Internet connection will most certainly help. 

Can’t Find Paramount+ on Your Android TV Box? - Try This!

The truth is that Android TV is the platform of choice for hundreds (if not thousands) of media streaming devices and TVs. Some of those devices are "verified," and they have access to the Google Play Store, while others run various Android TV versions without the Play Store. 

If you can’t find Paramount+ on your Android TV device, you probably use a device not verified by Google. With that said, we recommend contacting your Android TV box’s manufacturer for more information and updating your device to the latest version of its operating system.

Sideloading Paramount+ is also an option, as explained just below.

Can I Sideload Paramount Plus on Android TV? 

To sideload an Android TV, you need to have access to an Android app's installation (APK) file, which you can find on a website such as APKMirror.

When downloading Paramount Plus' APK file, ensure that you download the latest version available, which should be also optimized for Android TV. Then, transfer that file to your Android TV device, open it, and you'll get to install the app manually. That's it!

Can I Get Paramount Plus for Free on Android TV?

Yes, you can get Paramount Plus for free - for up to 7 days. In other words, you'll get to test-drive the streaming service before you're charged for your chosen subscription.

We'll also note that if you decide to subscribe to Paramount Plus, you'll need to provide your payment information, which means you'll be automatically charged once the trial period ends.

However, if you cancel your subscription before your trial ends, you won't be charged.
