Anyone with a Roku streaming set-top box, Samsung Smart TV, or Fire TV Stick at home is in for a real treat today as Paramount+ has finally making its way across the pond. This content-packed streaming service is now available across the UK, with subscribers able to feast on blockbuster movies, boxsets and exclusive TV shows for a small monthly fee.
As well as its existing library of exclusive boxsets and films, Paramount+ has even confirmed that Top Gun: Maverick will soon be available to watch via the service along with a selection of other brand-new movies. At launch, those who sign up will get instant access to films including Mission Impossible: Fallout, Grease and Star Trek (2009).
There are also Paramount exclusives such as HALO, 1883, Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, The Offer, Mayor of Kingstown, Queen of the Universe and Jerry & Marge Go Large. Those with kids in the house will also find plenty of child-friendly shows to tune into with Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years, Fairly Odd Parents: Fairly Odder and iCarly just some of the highlights.
If that all sounds enticing then you can sign up here, and there’s also a Paramount Plus free trial so you can try before you buy.
Those who want to continue watching will then need to pay £6.99 per month or £69.90 if they commit to a full year.
As we mentioned earlier, Paramount+ is available via Samsung TVs, Roku and Fire TV Sticks but there are also plenty of other devices that will offer full access.
