Can you get Paramount+ for free with a Now subscription? 

Unfortunately, no. If you have a Now Entertainment or Now Cinema Membership, this won’t also allow you to claim a free subscription to Paramount+. There are, however, a lot of Paramount owned movies available to stream on the Now library. 

Membership costs start from £9.99 per month, and Now does have some bundles available for new customers.
