Is Paramount Plus Free With Xfinity?

Quick Answer

No, Paramount Plus is not Free with Xfinity!

Sadly, the straight answer to that question will be hard to digest since it’s no. Paramount plus does not come 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. Xfinity Flex and X1 streaming box have the option of streaming Paramount Plus onto your TV. Just make sure your TV box is supported by the Xfinity Flex or Xfinity X1 plan.

Paramount and Paramount Plus

Being a cable streamer too, people can have this confusion about Paramount. See Paramount Plus is an on-demand video streaming app. Video streaming apps are also known as OTT or Over Top Platform. Paramount on the other hand is a regular cable TV channel that you watch with AT&T, Xfinity, and DirecTV cable services. Both of these channels are known to be subsidiaries of Paramount Global which is also a subsidiary of the larger Viacom CBS domestic network. Paramount Plus or for that matter Paramount are the bodies under Paramount Global which is the larger Viacom CBS network. 

Paramount Plus has all the content there is that we access from CBS and even the sports and games that they stream live on their platform. Paramount Plus also has a lot of movies to offer as a streaming platform especially those that are already been made under the Paramount banner.

Why am I being charged for Netflix on my Xfinity bill?

You might have subscribed to Netflix or accessed it through the Xfinity Flex streaming service. That can be the case why you are being charged for Netflix. In your billing, look for other services and you will have an option of Netflix there then that will be the only reason for these charges.


Xfinity does not provide any service for that matter for free except for a few seasons and episodes from the vast array of platforms for streaming it has. However, for convenience, you can keep all the streamers in one place, if you are already subscribed to Xfinity. It will keep your streaming charges more sorted and structured. All of it can be paid for in one monthly billing cycle.
