Using Paramount+ with Sky

What is Paramount+?

Paramount+ is a brand-new streaming service from Paramount, showcasing everything from blockbuster movies to new originals and iconic shows.

It's available to Sky TV customers with Sky Cinema at no extra cost (normally worth £6.99 per month from Paramount+), from 22 June on Sky platforms.

Sky Cinema subscribers with Sky Glass or Sky Q are able to access the Paramount+ app on their TV and other devices, whilst Sky+ has a range of content from Paramount+ automatically available on their set-top box.

What can I watch on Paramount+?

  • Some of the biggest movie franchises and award-winning classics, from Mission Impossible to Transformers, with more Hollywood blockbusters throughout the rest of 2022.
  • New originals and exclusive series such as Halo, Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, and The First Lady.
  • And a huge variety of iconic shows like South Park and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.

Sky Cinema subscribers will still be able to watch Paramount titles currently available on Sky Cinema, only now with a huge amount of additional Paramount+ content.
