Walmart and Paramount Team Up to Take Down Amazon Prime

Walmart and Paramount are teaming up to bring you a subscription service that could rival Amazon Prime.

The move will likely help Walmart position Walmart Plus as a worthy alternative to Amazon Prime, which attracts subscribers not just with Prime’s free delivery perk, but with Prime Video’s suite of shows and movies, among other benefits.

However, it does come with ads and you can’t download shows to watch them offline later – for these benefits you’ll need to upgrade to Paramount Plus Premium.
