Key Takeaways

  • This error prevents the user from streaming any video, giving a black screen.
  • It is usually caused by issues with the network or Paramount Plus server.
  • You can quickly fix it by restarting your router or device.

Check Your Internet Connection

Your second priority should be the basic key to online streaming: your internet. As per my experience and Anna from Minitool if it is working fine, then all is good; if not, you have found yourself the cause of the error. You can run a speed test on your browser to check the network connection.

Reset Your Router

Another thing you can do to get rid of errors is to restart your router. There might be a chance that your router is not working properly or giving you the desired output. So, just turn off your router for a few seconds and then turn it back on. It gives the device time to cool down and work as it should as it cleans its cache.

Log Out And Sign In

To resolve the error, try logging out of your device and then signing back in. This can refresh the app and reconnect it to the servers if there is a disconnection.

Here’s how:

  1. Go to your profile.
  2. Click on Sign out.
  3. Wait for a moment.
  4. Sign in again using your credentials.

While logging out of your app, consider manually logging out of all devices. Paramount Plus may not automatically log you out of every device. Although it’s not always necessary, as Paramount Plus doesn’t strictly track devices or have strict sharing restrictions, it can help ensure smooth streaming of your desired content.

Uninstall  And Reinstall Your App

Try uninstalling your application and then reinstalling it. Sometimes, the app gets disconnected from its servers and needs to be connected again. So, try it to see if it works or not.

Turn Off Your Proxy Or VPN

Another cause of the error code might be issued with the proxy or VPN you are using. These are used to overcome the app’s regional restrictions or stream content unavailable in your region. Turning Off your VPN will be a better option if you are experiencing this error. HalfGēk on Youtube shows this method is necessary to solve, and it is, confirmed by my team.

Disable Your Adblocker

The usage of the browser comes up with the use of a wide variety of extensions for desired performances. But that is not the same in every case. Your browser extensions, like adblockers, can also affect your streaming and can cause error 3304. It may also cause your streaming to buffer or cause other errors. So, it would be best if you disabled your adblocker while streaming Paramount Plus.
