Paramount+ debuts in the UK and Ireland

Another player has entered the streaming arena in the UK and Ireland, with Paramount+ launching through a major partnership with Sky.

The service boasts more than 8,000 hours of entertainment – bringing together exclusive originals, films and iconic series across every genre from Paramount’s brands and production studios including Showtime, Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon and Paramount Pictures.

Originals include the likes of HALO – the mini-series inspired by the video games franchise – plus Star Trek: Strange New Worlds among others.

Kids and family content, meanwhile, will include Paramount+ Original series Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years, Fairly Odd Parents: Fairly Odder, iCarly S1 and S2, while movies will range from classics from the archive such as Grease through to PAW Patrol: The Movie and Clifford The Big Red Dog and new releases like Top Gun: Maverick.

“This is a phenomenal year of growth for Paramount+”, said Tom Ryan, president and ceo, streaming at Paramount. “By the end of the year, we expect to be live in 45 countries with our unbeatable content offering, with a diversified set of major distribution partners.”

“The UK and Ireland are key strategic markets in the global rollout of Paramount+ given the broad distribution of our brands across the free-to-air and pay TV landscape. Our partnership with Sky gives us a strong foothold here and in several other markets where we plan to launch Paramount+ this year. Our differentiated strategy means we are poised to keep bringing the most compelling stories to audiences around the world.”
