Another global streaming service will enter the UK and Ireland market on 22nd June when Paramount Plus officially launches.
Further launches are planned in Italy, Germany, France, Switzerland and Austria in the second half of the year.
In the UK, the service will be available online, on mobile and on a wide range of connected TV devices via the Paramount Plus app, including Apple, Amazon, Google, Roku and Samsung, with more platforms to be announced in the coming months.
It will also be available on Sky platforms in the UK, Ireland, Italy, Germany and Austria in 2022 as part of a new multi-year distribution agreement that also includes the extended carriage of Paramount’s portfolio of pay-TV channels.
“Paramount is known for its leading portfolio of premium entertainment brands and a robust content engine that fuels our rapidly expanding streaming service, Paramount Plus, said Raffaele Annecchino, president and CEO, International Networks, Studios and Streaming, Paramount Global.
“This year will be monumental for our streaming strategy as we accelerate our global ambitions, rapidly expanding Paramount Plus in Europe beginning with the UK, Italy, Germany, France and more by the end of this year and debut in Asia with South Korea in June, followed by India in 2023.
“With an already expansive global footprint and a strong, long-term market-by-market strategy, we are well-poised to continue our positive momentum.”
