How to watch the Champions League on Paramount Plus

You'll be relieved to know that signing up to Paramount Plus couldn't be any simpler. All you need to do is go through the Paramount Plus website or find the app, or add-on channel, through whichever device you'll be watching it on.

There's also a try-before-you-buy option with this streaming service affording new Paramount Plus subscribers a one-week trial before you need to pay. After this window of time, you have two plans to choose from: Paramount Plus Essential or Paramount Plus with Showtime.

The basic plan, Paramount Plus Essential, comes in at $5.99 per month or $59.99 annually, the latter will save you a bit over $10 for the whole year. This is an ad-supported plan which will occasionally interrupt your streaming for commercials but does offer access to Paramount's whole back catalogue, CBS, Comedy Central, Nickelodeon and much more.

Paramount Plus with Showtime will set you back $11.99 per month, double the price of Paramount Plus Essential's plan but it does offer a larger variety of content than the former. This pricier plan excludes any commercial interruptions and includes access to all of Showtime's content and live streams of local CBS affiliate. Check out our in-depth guide to these Paramount Plus plans here.
