Paramount+ is launching on Sky TV and will be free for Sky Cinema subscribers in the UK, Ireland, Italy, Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
All other Sky customers will be able to subscribe to Paramount+ as an add-on to their account.
The tie-up is part of a wider deal which will see Paramount Pictures films remain available on Sky Cinema in the UK and join Sky Cinema in Germany and Italy in 2022. The agreement also includes an extended carriage deal for ViacomCBS’ pay TV portfolio on Sky platforms.
Paramount+ will also be available as a direct subscription for non-Sky customers through its iOS and Android app, and on supported connected TV devices and OTT platforms.
“We are thrilled to expand our long-standing partnership with Sky to continue delivering ViacomCBS’ leading portfolio of premium entertainment brands to Sky customers and importantly bring Paramount+ to new audiences in all Sky markets, including the UK, Ireland, Italy, and GSA,” said Raffaele Annecchino, President and Chief Executive Officer, ViacomCBS Networks International.
