Global rollout of the Paramount+ streaming platform continues, with the erstwhile CBS All Access subscription streaming service launching in the U.K. and Ireland on June 22. A separate launch in South Korea is slated for June, with additional rollouts in Germany, Italy, France, Switzerland and Austria set for later this year. The streamer plans to bow in India in 2023.
Paramount+ is bowing in select Western European countries with Comcast-owned satellite TV platform, Sky, as part of an over-the-top video distribution partnership. The app will also be available via Paramount+ app, via Apple TV, Amazon Prime Video, Google, Roku and Samsung streaming TV devices.
“This year will be monumental for our streaming strategy as we accelerate our global ambitions,” Raffaele Annecchino, president and CEO of international networks, studios and streaming for Paramount Global, said in a statement. “With an already expansive global footprint and a strong, long-term market-by-market strategy, we are well-poised to continue our positive momentum.”
