The e-commerce platform MercadoLibre and Paramount+, ViacomCBS’s SVOD OTT, relaunched in Latin America last March 4th, announced on May 13th a new partnership, through which MercadoLibre and MercadoPago users will be able to have discounts of up to 40% on the OTT subscription.
As a result of the agreement, it will be possible to access Paramount + content for free for the first seven days. According to the terms of the alliance, once the free period is over, the discounts will be between 10% and 40%, according to the level of each user in MercadoPuntos, MercadoLibre’s loyalty program, which allows its customers to add points and obtain benefits that improve each user’s experience.
