Alternative ways to stream Paramount Plus on your Samsung TV

#1: Apple AirPlay

If you have a Samsung TV that is Airplay 2 compatible, you can stream content straight to the TV via your iPhone or iPad.

Simply tap the AirPlay button (a square with an arrow pointing up) while you’re streaming and select your TV.

#2: Connect your laptop or desktop to your Samsung TV

If you happen to own a Samsung TV from 2016 or older, it won’t have native support for the Paramount Plus app. 

Fortunately, I have a straightforward solution for you.

You’ll require just 2 things:

  1. An HDMI cable.
  2. A laptop or desktop computer.

Then, follow these 3 easy steps to enjoy Paramount Plus on your older Samsung TV:

  1. Connect your computer to the Samsung TV using the HDMI cable.
  2. Launch the Paramount Plus app on your computer.
  3. Select the content you want to watch and start enjoying!

Note: When watching Paramount Plus content from your computer, you also have control over playback right from your computer.

#3: Use a streaming device

You can also get access to Paramount Plus by using a streaming player.

Simply download the app on your smartphone or tablet and connect it to one of the HDMI ports from the TV.

Here are a few of my favorite streaming players:

#1: Apple TV box

One of the best options is accessing Paramount Plus through an Apple TV box (4th and 5th Gen). 

Apple is known for its good image quality and great sound specifications.

And to set it up on your Samsung TV, simply connect it to the HDMI input. 

Keep in mind that the Apple TV box 4K is a bit higher priced than the competition.

For just under $145 USD, you’ll get 4K resolution and a storage capacity of 64 GB.

Now, if you’re seeking a more budget-friendly alternative, consider other streaming devices like the…

#2: Roku Streaming Stick 4K

The Roku Streaming Stick 4K is an excellent choice and is priced at just under $40 USD.

It’s easy to install, supports 4K HDR, and includes a remote with voice control.

#3: Chromecast with Google TV 4K

Google’s Chromecast is another superb option for just under $36 USD.

It comes with a voice-controlled remote and supports HDR and 4K.

#4: Fire TV Stick

Amazon offers various versions of the Fire TV Stick, but my favorite is the Fire TV Stick 4K Max, which is available for under $35 USD. 

It comes with a remote that has voice control and supports HDR and 4K.

These alternatives provide simple and alternative ways to stream Paramount Plus on your Samsung TV.
