No mention of Now, but included with Sky Cinema so we can hope.

Something that I am still trying to wrap my head around. The Sky Cinema part, is that only for the Paramount+ films or is it for the whole lot?

My reading is that Sky Cinema customers will get access to the entire app, TV and films.

Currently my understanding is that it will definitely not be part of the NOW cinema membership 😡 If like me who want to get Paramount+ you will need to subscribe directly with them. 

 

The app itself will most likely be added to NOW devices much like Disney+ and Netflix.

Hi @redchiz1 

 

The Disney + App is available on all NOW branded devices 😃.

 

If you have a NOW 4K Smart box then you can even watch in glorious 4K HDR10 if the Disney + content is marked has 4K HDR 😃.

Thanks @schnapps I have numerous 4K devices which support the highest quality streams. If I had a NOW device I wouldn't have asked my daft question! 🙂

Indeed, I was expecting a more concrete launch month considering they originally said "early 2022". With it being pushed back slightly is very disappointing.

 

Annoyingly we still no nothing on how much it will cost if your not a Sky TV customer with the cinema package. 

 

Basically anytime between April and June, unless they are holding off until SkyShowtime can launch in the markets they said and wanted to do a double whammy for launches?

Launch date 22nd June.  Not sure what this means for Now.  Another add on subscription?

It will be available as a separate app in UK so you will be able to get it on any of the major platforms i might have a look at the platform when it comes out but won't buy a years subscription.

As mentioned by @Enapace it’s another subscription. Those NOW cinema membership customers won’t get Paramount+ for free annoyingly.

I know which i would prefer between Sky Cinema and Paramount Plus as well. Sky Cinema is going just end up being Sony films and there original ones they are struggling even put on the Universal ones lol.
