Google TV Users Currently Experiencing Paramount+ Search Problems
With universal Google search and voice search (which pairs with Alexa, Siri, Cortana, and more), you can find the content you would like to watch all in one place. For example, if you search for Star Trek: Picard, you will be able to see where it’s streaming. Right now, when you search for content that is definitely available to stream on Paramount+, the option to access it via the streaming service is nonexistent.
Currently, to find content on Paramount+, you must navigate directly to the Paramount+ app and search within the app. While this is a minor inconvenience, it affects one of the major selling points of Chromecast with Google TV. Integrating Google TV with your streaming services makes it convenient to search and start streaming, especially if you don’t know which service offers a specific show or movie.
As you can see that there is no option to stream “The Good Fight” and “Infinite” on Paramount+ when you search with universal Google search. When you search directly in the Paramount+ app, you can stream them both.
In a statement to 9to5Google, Google said, “We have identified the issue and Google and Paramount+ are working on the fix together.” Hopefully, the issue will be resolved quickly so everyone can get back to enjoying their favorite shows and movies on Paramount+.
Paramount+ is a subscription video streaming service that includes on-demand access to 12,000+ TV show episodes including originals Star Trek: Discovery, Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob SquarePants, and MTV’s Laguna Beach. Meet captivating characters, catch up on your favorite sport, explore new worlds in the growing collection of Paramount+.
Previously under the name ‘CBS All Access,’ Subscribers can choose between their Essentials Plan (which includes ads) for $4.99/month, or go commercial-free with their Premium Plan for $9.99/month.
With their Premium Plan, in addition to not having ads, you will also get access to your local CBS affiliate to stream your local news, prime-time line-up, and late-night. You will also be able to download offline and watch select shows in 4K.
With the lower cost “Essential” plan, you will still be able to watch live NFL games, Champions League, and national news – but you will no longer get your local CBS affiliate like the old ad-supported plan.
With their new app, enjoy advanced recommendations, curated homepages, and new content categories while still being able to stream major live sports like NFL, College Football, College Basketball. Sports fans will also appreciate the service’s inclusion of NFL on CBS, PGA Tour, along with every match of UEFA Champions League and Serie A.
