Showtime’s linear network will officially be rebranded to Paramount+ with Showtime on January 8.

The linear version of Paramount+ with Showtime will feature new Showtime titles, including “A Gentleman in Moscow,” George Clooney’s “The Department” and “The Women in the Wall” as well as “Fellow Travelers,” “The Chi,” “The Curse,” “Yellowjackets,” and “Your Honor,” among others.

It will also include access to Paramount+ original series including “Sexy Beast,” the first and upcoming second season of “Halo,” seasons 1 and 2 of “Mayor of Kingstown,” seasons 1 through 4 of “Star Trek: Discovery,” season 1 of “Wolf Pack” and more.

The latest change comes after Showtime’s streaming offering was integrated into Paramount+ in June. The Paramount+ with Showtime streaming tier costs $11.99 per month, while the cheaper, ad-supported Essentials tier, which does not include Showtime, costs $5.99 per month.

“The move aligns the brand with the Paramount+ with SHOWTIME plan, a cornerstone integration for the streaming service, making this the first of its kind multiplatform brand that integrates streaming and linear content,” the company said in a statement.

Beginning Wednesday, Showtime’s owned and operated linear channels will air a launch campaign for the Paramount+ with Showtime rebrand to drive awareness among viewers.
