Firestick Paramount Plus Not Working

This allows for the rapid transmission of high-definition video and sound and device commands that are of theater quality. The Amazon Fire Stick enables you to watch popular programming like Netflix and Hulu and various additional streaming apps. Paramount is a well-known subscription video streaming service that has on-demand access to many popular programs, like the original Star Trek and the Discovery channel and Nickelodeon. The difference between Paramount and Paramount Plus is that Paramount must have a live TV subscription, whereas Paramount Plus is what is known as a Stand-Alone Streaming Service.
