Finding the best streaming app can be a difficult ordeal. Especially when you look at the fact that there are countless offerings to choose from; everything ranging from Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, Paramount Plus, and more. That is why, today’s guide is focused on how to install and watch Paramount Plus on PS5.
The PS5 is definitely the go-to for a lot of people as not just a powerful console but a multimedia device as it allows you to stream your favorite content from various services with ease. Sure, you will need to subscribe to Paramount Plus but aside from those charges, you really are not paying Sony anything.
How to Install and Stream Paramount Plus on PS5 – An Easy Guide
Now installing any streaming service on a PS5 is not at all difficult. Still, people who have been using their console primarily for gaming might have some issues doing it the right way. That is why we are going to help you with the process and trust me, it is just as easy as it sounds.
The whole guide is divided into steps so you do not get carried away.
Step 1: Signing Up for Paramount Plus
The first step is to sign up for Paramount Plus. You can do so by heading over to your PC or smartphone’s browser and going to paramountplus.com. Alternatively, you can also do this on your PS5. Once you are on the website, you will have to go ahead and click on Try Paramount+ button.
You will now be asked to choose between trying it for free or choosing a plan. Choose your option and then click Continue. You will now be asked to add all your personal information such as name, email address, and password.
Once you have added all the information, click Continue, add your subscription plans and payment information. Once you are done with that, simply click Start Paramount Plus.
Step 2: Install Paramount Plus on PS5
This is where things get a little complicated because at the time of writing, PS5 does not have a native Paramount Plus app. However, that does not mean that you cannot watch Paramount Plus on PS5. Simply follow the steps below and you are good to go.
The first step is to download the Paramount Plus and a screen mirroring app on your smartphone. I would suggest that you use TeamViewer, Plex, or Your Phone by Microsoft. For this tutorial, we are using the Screen Mirroring app.
Now, login to the Paramount Plus account and connect your smartphone to the PS5; be sure that both devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi.
The next step will need you to setup the speaker with your PS5. Once that is done, press the PlayStation button on your PS5 control.
Now, you have to open Game Base and then choose a friend. Go to Messages and then choose Send a Quick Message option. Now, send the following URL https://tvee.app/, open the following link and a QR code will appear on the screen.
Now go back to your smartphone, open the Screen Mirroring app on your phone. Tap Scan option and scan the QR code. Next, you have to click the Screen Mirroring button and select Start Broadcast.
Once the screen is successfully mirrored, launch the Paramount Pluss app on your smartphone and you will be able to enjoy your content without any hassle.
Streaming your favorite content anywhere you want is a blessing in disguise and has helped us beat so many boring ordeals. However, streaming the content on PlayStation 5 or your desktop is even more fun because you are more than likely to enjoy the content on larger screens.
Paramount Plus, although a great streaming service, is sadly lacking when it comes to having proper support for PlayStation 5. However, considering how the service does have an app on PlayStation 4, we can assume that a PS5 version is in the works. Until then, this guide covers everything you need to install and watch Paramount Plus on your PS5.
The methods might be tricky for those who are used to doing things the native way, but if you are looking forward to enjoy your content, this is the way you have to do it. The other way is to find a device that has native support for the streaming service and watch at your leisure.
