The Showtime app could be coming to an end, with a report Tuesday saying there are plans to make it accessible only via the Paramount Plus streaming app.

Currently, movie streaming service Showtime is available as a stand-alone app. But as of last month, you could already access Showtime content in Paramount Plus with a bundled discount rate of $8 per month, ad-supported, or $13 a month for the ad-free Premium Plan.

Plans to end Showtime's app are still early, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing unnamed sources. 

Paramount Plus didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
