Last August, Sky confirmed that it is partnering with ViacomCBS (now rebranded as Paramount) to offer Paramount Plus to its Sky Cinema subscribers and Sky Q customers at no extra cost.
Maria Kyriacou, President of Paramount in Australia, Canada, Israel and UK, said ahead of the launch: ‘The addition of Paramount Plus to our strong portfolio of free-to-air, pay-TV, and streaming services will broaden the range of choice available to our audiences in the UK and Ireland.
‘Paramount Plus will be a one-stop destination for Paramount’s biggest brands, where fans of all ages can find exclusive original premium content, global hits, and discover a world of favourites from Paramount’s vast catalogue.’
How much will Paramount Plus cost?
A subscription will set you back £6.99 per month, or you can pay for an annual membership for £69.90 – which will save you £14 a year.
A seven-day trial will also be available to users to try out the new platform.
You will be able to sign up for your subscription on the app or the Paramount Plus wesbite.
However, Sky Cinema subscribers will get the service automatically added to their bundles at no extra cost.
What will be available to watch on Paramount Plus?
This streaming service features around 30,000 hours of content including hundreds of movies and exclusive TV shows.
