Paramount+, the global streaming service from Paramount Global, is to launch in the UK and Ireland on 22 June 2022.
Paramount+ will also launch in South Korea in June, with further launches planned in Italy, Germany, France, Switzerland and Austria in the second half of the year.
Additionally, in 2023, Paramount+ will launch in India in partnership with Viacom 18.
The launches mark an acceleration of the Paramount+ global roll out after the service originally debuted in the United States in March 2021.
In the UK, subscribers will be able to sign up to the service for £6.99 per month/£69.90 per annum, after a free seven-day trial.
Paramount+ will offer 8,000 hours of content from Paramount’s brands and production studios, including Showtime, Paramount Pictures, Comedy Central, MTV and Nickelodeon.
Its slate includes Star Trek, Halo, Yellowstone and South Park, as well as SpongeBob SquarePants, PAW Patrol and Rugrats.
“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,” said Raffaele Annecchino, president and CEO, international networks, studios and streaming at Paramount Global.
