How to Get Paramount+ App and Subscription on Samsung TVs

Paramount+ is a popular streaming service with thousands of hours of ad-free entertainment content from major brands like CBS, Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon, and Paramount Pictures. If you have a Samsung smart TV from 2017 or later, you can easily access Paramount+ by downloading the app.
