Paramount +

Sky and Now TV are supposed to get Paramount + in June. How will NOW customers access it and is there a cost? I understand Sky customers are getting it free as part of the Sky Cinema package.

If you have a NOW device it will be an app for you to log in to. We won't get it free, it's either £6.99 a month or £69.90 a year.

Hi @Daveregan1956 

 

This linked internet article below should answer your questions.

In other words, "no."  😉

Indeed, for those who are not Sky subscribers it will be available via an app on the usual array of devices, not just those (no longer) supplied by NOW.

Definitely looking forward to final seeing the Ray Donovan film 😎

 

Still looks like they will have to untangle all the contracts for CBS shows like SEAL Team, plus the NCIS and FBI franchises.

 

No doubt Blue Bloods will be available at launch as I started that on the US Paramount+ which I ended cancelling in February. So will be good to continue that from season 2.

It will be available without Now tv on Roku or a smart tv when it is launched also available on Amazon Prime

You will end up paying more if you stay with Now

It depends on the content. The content I’m interested in is going to be across all the main streaming services, so effectively they have me tied in for life 😂

@superglo2012 Paramount+ is a separate service. But I suspect you know that and are just cheerfully trolling away judging by your other posts.

Now tv is getting too expensive for a streaming service with adverts,  and most of the programs that are on Now, are either on Disney+ or Paramount + or Amazon

That's because Paramount and Disney are pulling the content they own onto their own services. 

Even when HBO Max launches all the WarnerMedia and HBO content will leave. 

Technically speaking Sky content will be originals and NBC/Universal.

It does say on the actual sky site that Now cinema subscribers will also get the paramount movies however I’ve yet to see it added to now. If anyone can shed some light on this that would be great. The article was posted on Wednesday 22 June 2022

“This app will not be available on NOW, but as part of Sky Cinema’s continued relationship with Paramount, NOW Cinema members will be able to stream brand new Paramount blockbusters through Sky Cinema and enjoy a library of Paramount’s films on demand at no additional cost”

It's referring to films like Top Gun, which outside the UK is on Paramount+. The films will be within the Sky cinema channels and not branded as Paramount but Sky Cinema.

Though Top Gun and other films will be going by to be on paramount plus soon as agreements end beyond any doubt. Will be very similar to Disney/Fox and Sky will get a small handful of paramount movies to keep on there service. 

If you have Sky Cinema via Now I really do struggle to see the value at all anymore.

Paramount movies will be on both Paramount+ and Sky Cinema I believe, Scream for instance , the rights are being shared.

 

Scream is on Paramount+ from 25th July

I would like clarification too, as everyone on here seems to be saying the opposite of that official Sky article.

It is now the early hours of the 24th June and no sign of Paramount content in the various NowTv apps I use.

I only kept my half price Cinema deal going because I read this a few weeks ago, but I’ve not received an email from NowTv about it, so I’m starting to suspect that article, despite being from Sky, must be incorrect!
