Star Trek isn’t the only thing in the Paramount+ on-demand catalog. The streaming service lets people stream content from CBS, cable channels like Nickelodeon plus Paramount’s own movie studios. But finding out that your favorite content is on Paramount+ isn’t the easiest thing in the world. If you had a Paramount+ API, you could use the streamer’s metadata to help your app or website’s users.
It’s too bad that Paramount+ doesn’t make things easier. Read on for more about whether Paramount+ supports developers and about an easier way to help your users find the streaming content they love.
Is there a Paramount+ API?
Originally the on-demand streaming arm of TV network CBS, a rebranding created Paramount+ to cover all of the content from ViacomCBS’ many production studios. Popular brands from Spongebob to Transformers are all right there in the Paramount+ catalog.
But accessing that catalog’s metadata isn’t easy unless you have a Paramount+ API. Without the streaming service’s help, developers were stuck. They could assemble their own metadata catalog, but that would mean reassigning people from their core products. Paramount+ content comes and goes so someone needs to maintain the catalog every day.
That’s out of the question for most developers which is why Flixed created an affordable alternative for getting on-demand metadata.
