Stream the Mountain.

Paramount Prime is a streaming service created for Paramount Pictures as to showcase content for ages 8-15. This includes several pieces of Paramount's known media and franchises, as well as including content from ViacomCBS' television network Nickelodeon (75% from its animated content and 25% from its live-action content), along with some content from the CBS Entertainment library, which includes Star Trek.

Like Disney+, it features content suitable for family audiences (i.e. excluding content that's R-rated or TV-MA-rated).

Tropes related to Paramount Prime:

  • Alliterative Name: Paramount Prime.
  • Content Warning: While the streaming service is family-friendly, it features a range of some suggestive content in some of its movies, so it will have a warning shown before the following movie saying it will contain "brief mild language" or "stylized violence".
  • Digital Destruction: Averted for the most part. The featured shows, mainly the Nicktoons, are featured in the respective quality they had been introduced in.
  • Double-Meaning Title: Paramount Prime features many movies from Paramount's past, as well as being a service centered around family-oriented content, if not content for young audiences. Hence the name.
  • Exiled from Continuity:
    • While it's featuring various franchises from Paramount, Nickelodeon's film division, Nickelodeon Movies, was only allowed to have only its CGI-animated films featured on the app; excluding all live-action, 2D animated, and live-action/animated hybrid films. Fortunately, there are the live-action shows.
    • If you're deciding to find Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek: Picard, the other follow-up Star Trek shows or even the Kelvin Timeline trilogy on Paramount Prime, don't get your hopes up. The streaming service is streaming content only related to Star Trek: The Original Series so CBS All Access can keep at least a reasonable amount.
    • Nick's original content on Netflix, such as Glitch Techs, is excluded to distance itself from it.
  • Follow the Leader: It's no guess it's a family-friendly streaming service and presenting suitable content from the studios' film and television library, similar to Disney+.
  • Network to the Rescue: It features various shows that weren't given a DVD or Blu-ray release. Those being the Nicktoons series nonetheless.
    • And for those Betty Boop aficionados, it features the Betty Boop short subject filmography from 1932 trough 1939; including the banned ones. Of course, there will be some Content Warning nonetheless.
  • Orwellian Retcon:
    • For CBS Films' movies, Lionsgate's logo is removed from the beginning of the opening logos to the selected films The DUFF and Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life.
    • With the Nicktoons series, their closing logos have the Nickelodeon Animation Studio logo and Paramount Television Studios logo (either a 1975 Blue Mountain version for the 2D-animated shows and the regular one for the CGI series).
  • Screwed by the Layers:
    • It's pretty obvious that Paramount won't be able to have the DreamWorks Animation 2006-2012 library due to NBCUniversal now owning the rights to DWA.
    • Fortunately, there are two aversions:
      • The Indiana Jones franchise was included since Paramount had distributed back in the day. Also, Paramount still owns the distribution rights to the first four movies and the prequel series.
      • Through Loophole Abuse, Doug is currently owned by Disney, but its first four seasons are available on Paramount Prime since they were produced by Nickelodeon and are pre-Disney, while its last three seasons are on Disney's streaming service Disney+.
