Earlier this year, the company formerly known as ViacomCBS bet big on Paramount+—and it’s already paying off.

Paramount’s flagship streaming service Paramount+ added 6.8 million subscribers in the first quarter of the year, bringing the streamer to nearly 40 million. That’s a slight decline from the 7.3 million gain it reported to end the year.

The company attributed domestic growth to its robust content slate, citing titles like Halo, 1883, Star Trek: Picard, live events and the NFL.

Halo became the most-streamed original series for Paramount+ in its first week of release, president and CEO Bob Bakish said during the company’s earnings call Tuesday morning.
