Paramount Global is considering merging its Showtime streaming service with Paramount+, offering a combined online TV option to consumers as the industry fights for viewers.

Showtime, a premium cable TV channel that’s home to shows like the finance drama “Billions” and “Yellowjackets,” about a girls soccer team, has an online service that’s available for $11 a month. Paramount+, which includes movies and shows from channels including CBS, Comedy Central and Nickelodeon, starts at $5 a month for an ad-supported version.
