Football on Paramount+

American football watchers also have plenty to watch on the service. There are live streams of NFL games available to all US subscribers every Sunday.

These games are the same as those that are available on your local CBS station, and as a result, blackout restrictions apply. In short, if a game is broadcasted locally in your market, it is unlikely you’ll find it on Paramount+.

For those who enjoy the narratives that go on behind the action, Paramount+ has Inside the NFL. The weekly program covers the big stories behind the games. 

College football fans can also watch the coverage provided by their local CBS station on the streaming service. This includes live matches of military academy games.

Those who enjoy seeing heavyweights slug it out will find entertainment on Paramount+. Boxing is available on the service with Showtime Championship Boxing. Although some matches will be available for free, there are also pay-per-view (PPV) matches as well.

Paramount+ compared to other sports streaming services

It is difficult to compare the service to purely sports-focused offerings, because of the entertainment it also offers subscribers. For those that are primarily interested in sports, it is worth comparing Paramount Plus to other streamers. 

Largely, Paramount+ is good value for money for those who want a hybrid of sport and entertainment.
