Similar to Netflix, Disney Plus, Amazon Prime Video, etc., Paramount+ offers its premium subscribers the ability to download on mobile clients. These features are not supported on all mobile devices and must be available on iPhone/iPad (iOS 13+) and Android tablets/phones (Android 5+). When you download videos and play them offline through the Paramount+ app, it does not mean that you have full ownership of those downloaded videos.

Paramount Plus Download Limits

Because of the DRM restrictions, Paramount Plus downloaded videos also contain various limits as follows. You can also use this article to learn how to download Paramount Plus videos and remove these download restrictions through third-party download tools such as Kigo Paramount+ Video Downloader.

Limit of the maximum number of downloads

You can have a maximum of 25 videos in your download library at one time. If you're attempting to download a 26th video, you will see the "download limit" error message.

Limit of the number of supported download devices

You may only use a maximum of three simultaneous streams (measured across all content available on the Paramount+ Service) at any time regardless of the number of devices that we permit you to access the Paramount+ Service with.

Limit of the maximum number of downloads of the same video

You may see this message if you're trying to download the same video to another device. If you have 5 copies of the same video across all devices, you'll be prompted with this error message on your 6th download attempt.

Expiration limit of the Paramount+ downloads

Starting with the day you've downloaded the video, it will be available in your download library for 30 days. After 30 days, the video will be removed from your download library.

Once you start streaming the video (even if it's only for a few minutes!), it will be available in your download library for 48 hours. After 48 hours, the video will be removed from your download library. If you haven't finished watching the video by the time it expires, you can always download it again.
