Walmart+ subscribers can officially stream thousands of episodes, popular films and live sporting events with Paramount's ad-based streaming service.
Effective immediately, Walmart's subscription service members can set up an account with Paramount+ Essential Plan at no additional cost, Walmart announced.
Walmart claims this is the most anticipated benefit for its service, which is viewed as a direct competitor for Amazon Prime.
Amazon's Prime membership comes with an array of perks such as the Amazon Video service, original programming and free gaming. But the company recently raised the cost of its membership to $14.99 per month or $139 per year due to inflation.
Meanwhile, the cost of Walmart's program — which also offers free shipping on items and discounts on gasoline — will remain at $12.95 per month or $98 per year, even with the added benefit, according to the Arkansas-based retailer.
The recent perk, valued at $59, is an effort by the nation's largest retailer to sweeten its subscription program for existing members, while also trying to lure in new members.
Walmart has never disclosed the number of members it has signed up. However, when Walmart first announced the deal last month, it said it's had monthly growth in membership since its launch in September 2020.
"It’s pretty simple for us — our Walmart+ members asked for a streaming benefit, and we absolutely delivered with Paramount+," Chris Cracchiolo, senior vice president and general manager of Walmart+, said in a statement.
Starting Wednesday, members will get instant access to scads of Paramount+ originals and movies such as "Halo" the series, "Star Trek: Strange New Worlds" and the "Yellowstone'' prequel.
They will also get access to Paramount+ exclusives like "Transformers: Earthspark," "Tulsa King," "On the Come Up" and "SEAL Team," which are set to premiere this fall.
To access the service, members must log into their current Walmart+ account online or through the app. From there, they will have to create a Paramount+ account.
New members can also sign up for a Walmart+ to create a Paramount+ account and start streaming immediately.
