Matt Tamanini

After Paramount+ announced that the streaming service added 6.8 million global subscribers in the first quarter of 2022, Paramount revealed that they would be launching the service in the UK and Ireland on June 22.

At the end of March, Paramount+ had 39.6 million subscribers worldwide as the platform approaches additional launches around the world. In addition to the UK and Ireland debuts, the streamer will also launch in South Korea in June with plans to premiere in Austria, France, Germany, Italy, and Switzerland in the second half of the year.

Paramount CEO Bob Bakish also announced during the company’s earnings call earlier this week that Paramount+ will launch in India in 2023 as a part of the recently announced partnership with Viacom 18.

“This year will be monumental for our streaming strategy as we accelerate our global ambitions, rapidly expanding Paramount+ 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,” Paramount Global’s president and CEO of International Networks, Studios, and Streaming Raffaele Annecchino said. “With an already expansive global footprint and a strong, long-term market-by-market strategy, we are well-poised to continue our positive momentum.”

Paramount+ will have more than 8,000 hours of content when the service launches in the UK and will run £6.99 per month ($8.74 USD)/£69.90 ($87.41 USD) per year following a seven-day free trial.

Paramount Plus

Paramount+ is a subscription video streaming service that includes on-demand access to 40,000+ TV show episodes from BET, CBS, Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon, Nick Jr. and more. The lineup includes “1883,” “Tulsa King,” “Star Trek: Discovery,” Nickelodeon’s “SpongeBob SquarePants,” and MTV’s “Laguna Beach.” From well-loved franchises to compelling originals, Paramount+ offers a great library worth streaming. Live NFL games are included. The service also offers the option to watch your live CBS affiliate.

Subscribers can choose between the Essentials Plan (which includes ads) for $4.99/month, or go commercial-free with the Premium Plan for $9.99/month. Subscribers can add Showtime to either plan for an additional fee.

With their Premium Plan, in addition to not having ads, you will also get access to your local CBS affiliate to stream your local news, prime-time lineup, and late-night. You will also be able to download offline and watch select shows in 4K.

With the lower cost “Essential” plan, you will still be able to watch live NFL games, Champions League, and national news – but you will no longer get your local CBS affiliate.

With their new app, enjoy advanced recommendations, curated homepages, and new content categories while still being able to stream major live sports like NFL, College Football, College Basketball. Sports fans will also appreciate the service’s inclusion of NFL on CBS, PGA Tour, along with every match of UEFA Champions League and Serie A.

The service was previously called CBS All Access.
