Paramount is bringing its streaming service Paramount+ to Germany from December this year. The offer can be used for EUR 7.99 per month via the Paramount+ app for Android and iOS, online and via supported TV devices. An app for Sky Q is also to be offered to Sky Cinema subscribers.
Simultaneous start in several countries
Sky Cinema subscribers will then be able to stream Paramount+ content free of charge. The new streaming provider is therefore also starting a little cheaper in the German market than established providers such as Netflix and Disney+. At the same time as the launch in Germany, Paramount+ will also be launched in Austria, Switzerland and France, while it will launch in Italy in September and in the UK this Wednesday. As Paramount continues to expand its offering, it aims to reach 100 million subscribers by 2024.
Start Trek and exclusive regional content
Paramount+ started in 2014 as CBS All Access in the US before being marketed as Paramount+ since early 2021. In addition to various Star Trek series, which are still available in Germany for an indefinite period via various streaming providers, and “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds”, Paramount+ will start filming the video game Halo in Germany and also local in-house productions for the German market.
In addition to the eight-part series “Der Scheich”, which revolves around a con artist and is based on true events, the German hacker series “A Thin Line “ accompany the Germany offer. In “A Thin Line”, the twin sisters Anna (Saskia Rosendahl) and Benni (Hanna Hilsdorf) uncover environmental crimes as hackers, but Anna is arrested when a government server is hacked, while her sister goes underground.
From 2024, Paramount films will also be available via the Paramount+ streaming service after an initially exclusive start in cinemas.
