With the amount of streaming services you have to choose from these days, it's not hard to sign up for a few of end up paying just as much (or more) than the cable they were supposed to replace.

Which is why a good deal on said services — like this Paramount+ one — is definitely worth taking a second look at. As of Aug. 21, you can grab either a year subscription to Paramount+ Essential or Paramount+ with Showtime for half off their regular rates when you use the code SPORTS at checkout.

Here's why Paramount's offer is especially enticing. For the Essential plan, you'll pay just $2.50 a month, which is less than half the price of the monthly Essential plan, and just $29.99 for the entire year. You'll have to watch some ads, but you'll get access to tons of shows and movies like the Yellowstone prequel 1923, live NFL games, and round-the-clock live news.

For Paramount+ with Showtime, you'll pay just $5 a month (still less than the monthly Essential plan) and just $69.99 overall, for 12 months of everything you get with Essential, plus no ads except for live TV and on a select few shows, and access to Showtime's catalog, which includes standouts like Yellowjackets and Everything Everywhere All At Once.

It's not too often we see more than one Paramount+ plan at a time get its price slashed in half, and even less often that you'll be able to lock in that price for a year.
