Streaming service Paramount Plus has made a commitment to add more than 2,500 new films this summer — and it’s starting this week with the launch of over 1,000 new movie titles.

To celebrate the rollout of its new movie catalog, Paramount Plus is giving new customers the chance to try out the streaming service absolutely free for one month when they sign up for a new account through this link and enter the promo code MOVIES at check-out.

Formerly known as CBS All Access, Paramount Plus is the blockbuster streaming service operated by ViacomCBS. It offers television shows and films from a variety of ViacomCBS brands, including the CBS broadcast network, Paramount Pictures, Comedy Central, Nickelodeon, TV Land, Smithsonian Channel, MTV, BET and VH1.

Earlier this year, ViacomCBS executives announced plans to launch a slate of new, original shows and films that would stream exclusively on the service. Those movies include the new Mark Wahlberg drama “Infinite,” the computer animated film “The Spongebob Movie: Sponge on the Run” and a host of new Paramount Pictures films that are slated to hit the streaming service around the same time they are offered in theaters.

In addition to exclusive movies, Paramount Plus will also incorporate movies and shows from the premium cable network Epix later this summer. Executives say the streaming service will eventually include licensed TV shows and movies from other third party services by the end of the year.

Paramount Plus costs $5 a month with advertisements or $10 a month for commercial-free streaming. The commercial-free tier of service also includes access to a live stream of a user’s local CBS station or affiliate (which will come in handy around football season) as well as the ability to download movies and TV shows for offline viewing.

Normally, Paramount Plus offers a free, seven-day trial to take the streaming service for a test drive, but to celebrate its launch of new movies for this summer, ViacomCBS is giving new users an extended one-month free trial — which also coincides with the debut of new seasons of hit Paramount Plus originals “Why Women Kill” and “The Good Fight.”

To redeem the one month free trial to Paramount Plus, follow these steps:

For serious movie hounds, Paramount Plus also has a special bundle deal with Showtime that knocks a few dollars off the collective price of the two services. To find out more about the Paramount Plus-Showtime bundle, click or tap here.

Paramount Plus is supported on a wide number of streaming devices, including Apple TV, Android TV (Google TV), Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV and Roku. It is also available on the Playstation 4 and Microsoft Xbox game consoles, Samsung’s Tizen OS, LG’s WebOS, Vizio TV and Facebook’s Portal TV, as well as on most popular smartphones and tablets.
