Thousands and thousands of Sky users have just received an upgrade that brings over 8,000 hours of recent Hollywood movies and exclusive TV shows without paying a penny more. The boost is all because of the launch of Paramount+, which has joined forces with Sky TV to bring the streaming service to Sky Cinema subscribers at no extra cost. Unfortunately, NOW (formerly NOW TV) viewers with the Sky Cinema membership will not benefit from the same upgrade …so they may should benefit from the Paramount Plus free trial like everyone else to observe free.
Until now, Paramount+ has only been available within the US but that is all changing with this Netflix rival now arriving within the UK. It often costs £6.99 monthly but that is not the case for some Sky TV users. Starting today (Wednesday June 22), anybody who subscribes to Sky Cinema will find they get Paramount+ at no cost – meaning they avoid paying that monthly fee.
It’s a fairly large saving and there are many things to observe as well with Paramount+ featuring movies like Scream 5, Mission Unattainable: Fallout, Grease and Star Trek.
There are also exclusive shows such HALO, 1883, Star Trek: Strange Latest Worlds and Jerry & Marge Go Large, plus loads of family-friendly entertainment including Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years and iCarly.
Paramount+ has also confirmed that users might be a number of the first to get access to the brand new Top Gun: Maverick film which might be streamed to TVs at no extra cost.
“The UK and Ireland are key strategic markets in the worldwide rollout of Paramount+ given the broad distribution of our brands across the free-to-air and Pay TV landscape, said Tom Ryan, President & CEO Streaming at Paramount.
“Our partnership with Sky gives us a powerful foothold here and in several other markets where we plan to launch Paramount+ this yr. Our differentiated strategy means we’re poised to maintain bringing probably the most compelling stories to audiences world wide.”
In the event you do not have Sky then don’t panic as Paramount+ can also be available on devices such Samsung TVs, Amazon’s Fire TV and Roku players. As we mentioned earlier, a normal subscription costs £6.99 monthly with customers also in a position to enroll for a yr’s access for £69.90 – saving around £14.
