Available as a simple in-app upgrade, bundle subscribers can now effortlessly curate their watch list to include both Paramount+ and SHOWTIME programming, from Paramount+ favorites like 1883, HALO, STAR TREK: DISCOVERY and SECRET HEADQUARTERS to SHOWTIME hits like BILLIONS, YELLOWJACKETS, THE CHI, DEXTER: NEW BLOOD and more.
