No, Paramount Plus is not Free with Xfinity!

However, part of their library is still accessible and can be availed for free. Just that the entire library however is not available for free. But a year-ender offer by the Paramount family has literally played the trump card in terms of catching the streaming market. You can now access Paramount Plus at a discounted rate annually if you subscribe by 1st February. The annual plans of ‘essential’ and ‘premium’ gonna cost $24.99/year and $49.99/year as opposed to $49.99/year and $99.99/year.
Xfinity is also giving out a year-ender offer by giving bonus concessions to access some seasons of premium shows on HBO Max and Prime Video which I will discuss here.
