New streaming service Paramount+ is available at no extra cost for Sky Cinema subscribers with Sky Q or Sky Glass, but there are different ways to access the service.
Paramount+ launches with movies including Mission Impossible: Fallout and Transformers The Last Night. Its originals and exclusives include Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, Halo and The First Lady.
Non-Sky Cinema subscribers will need to add Paramount+ separately. It costs £6.99 (UK) €7.99 (ROI).
Access Paramount+ on Sky Q or Sky Glass
The Paramount+ app is now available on Sky Q boxes and Sky Glass TVs.
- Sky Cinema subscribers will automatically get access.
- But non-Sky Cinema subscribers can’t sign up to Paramount+ through Sky. : Viewers will first need to sign up to Paramount+ at www.paramountplus.com. Using the login details created on the Paramount Plus website, viewers can then proceed to sign in on Sky Q or Sky Glass.
Anyone who has already signed up to Paramount+ can use those existing details to log in through Sky. There is currently no mechanism to combine an existing Paramount+ subscription with a Sky account.
You can access Paramount+ on up to three different devices at the same time.
Access Paramount+ through Sky+
A selection of TV shows and films from Paramount will be downloaded to Sky+ boxes. This will ensure Sky Cinema subscribers still using an older box can access extra Paramount content. For the full experience, users need to switch to Sky Q or Sky Glass.
Access Paramount+ on NOW
The Paramount+ app won’t be available on NOW. Instead, NOW Cinema members will be able to stream selected blockbusters from Paramount through Sky Cinema.
Many smart TVs and dongles that include NOW will also include the standalone Paramount+ app. Viewers will need to subscribe separately to Paramount+, even if they have Sky or NOW.
