What channels are included in Paramount Plus?

Paramount is yet to reveal specific detail about which channels and content UK subscribers will be able to watch, though it’s quite likely there will be many of the same shows and movies that are available to viewers in the United States.

If that is the case, we can expect more than 30,000 episodes and movies from channels including CBS, Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon and of course, Paramount Pictures.

Paramount Plus shows

Paramount is home to some of the biggest franchises, which we expect will start being removed from rival streaming services very soon, as well as Paramount original programming and popular kids’ TV.

Animated adult-comedy South Park and all of the new and yet-to-be-released Star Trek shows have been confirmed to be available to Paramount Plus subscribers. This includes sci-fi hits like Star Trek: Strange New Worlds and Star Trek: Picard, which is also streaming on Amazon Prime. Jackass, which recently announced a new season following the success of Jackass Forever will also be streaming on Paramount Plus from launch.

The service will also offer more family friendly shows, such as the all seasons of Paw Patrol and SpongeBob SquarePants.

Is Paramount Plus free with Prime?

Those familiar with the US version of Paramount Plus will know that you could add it to Prime, however for UK viewers, a Paramount Plus subscription will be required to stream content.

Will Paramount Plus be free with Sky?

Yes! In the UK, a partnership between Sky and ViacomCBS means Paramount Plus is free for Sky Cinema subscribers. Sky Cinema customers should look out for email blasts from Sky with how to access it as an existing subscriber.
