paramount + and Paramount + on Roku

Is there a difference between Paramount+ and Paramount+ on Roku? I have Paramount+ on Roku and when I search a film that shows up on Paramount+(using the oku search) and is viewable; I get an error code when I select the film. The error states I am signed in on another device. It also says I am on a limited commercial monthly plan.... I have a Roku 4K

What does this mean?

Re: paramount + and Paramount + on Roku

I don't know specifically about Paramount+, but in general when you subscribe to something through a third party like Roku it's not the same as subscribing directly with the provider.  There are often limitations with these third party subscriptions.  You're almost always, if not always, better off subscribing directly with the provider.

The error message seems odd, but I don't know what it means.

Re: paramount + and Paramount + on Roku

Paramount+ and Paramount+ on Roku are two different subscriptions. Paramount+ on Roku is limited access to Paramount+..... there are also other shows (older ones) that are not on Paramount+.

Paramount+ has full access to all shows offered on Paramount+ but not the certain shows on the Roku version.

It's just a bit confusing!!!
