Millions of Sky TV users will get blockbuster upgrade for FREE this week


Sky users will find they have even more content to choose from later this week with Paramount+ finally coming to set-top boxes across the UK. This hugely popular streaming service – which first launched in the US back in 2014 – will arrive in Britain on Wednesday, June 22 with those who sign up getting access to blockbuster movies, classic films and a swathe of original shows.

Sky customers will find Paramount+ appearing automatically on their Sky Q box and Sky Glass TVs and there’s one massive bonus for anyone who already subscribes to Sky Cinema.

That’s because the satellite TV firm is scraping the usual £6.99 monthly fee and offering Cinema users the chance to watch Parmount+ for free.

“On 22 June, Paramount+ makes its big debut. This brand-new streaming service is worth £6.99 a month from Paramount+. But Sky Cinema customers can enjoy a range of content at no extra cost with their subscription.”

Sky Cinema usually costs around £12 per month so this is a huge boost for anyone who subscribes.

So what’s featuring on Paramount+?

This streaming service features around 30,000 hours of content including hundreds of movies and exclusive TV shows.

The UK launch will see users able to view films such as Mission Impossible: Fallout, Clifford the Big Red Dog, Transformers: The Last Knight and Scream.

It’s expected that Top Gun: Maverick will also be available to stream for Paramount+ members at no extra charge, with a release date likely to be announced soon.

TV shows available from this Wednesday also include Halo, The First Lady, Super Pumped and The Offer.

It’s worth noting that you don’t need to be a Sky customer to access Paramount+.

This new service will be available on a swathe of platforms including smartphones, tablets and devices such as the Fire TV Stick, Roku and Apple TV.

One month’s worth of Paramount+ access costs £6.99 while a year’s membership is £69.90 – that means signing up for a year will save you almost £14.

As a quick comparison, Disney+ costs £7.99 with Netflix prices starting from £6.99.
