How to Screen Mirror on Xbox 360

Although Paramount Plus is available on nearly all Xbox Series, Xbox 360 is unfortunately not one of them, and it’s the only exception.

However, if you want to watch Paramount Plus on your Xbox 360 console, there’s a workaround for this issue.

Since both iOS and Android devices have a Screen Mirroring feature, you can play titles on Paramount Plus from your phone, and cast it or screen mirror it to your console.

Once you play a certain title on Paramount Plus on your phone, click on the ‘Cast’ icon, find your Xbox device, and connect them to start casting.
