The Paramount+ launch in Germany has been confirmed. In December 2022, the competitor to Netflix, Disney+, and others will also enter the stage in Germany. And also positions itself below the competition in terms of price.
Paramount+ German launch will take place in December
We’ve known since February that Paramount+ is also coming to Germany. Now it is certain when it will be so far. The new streaming service will launch in Germany before the end of this year, in December 2022 to be precise, the company has now announced. When exactly it will be so far, however, is not revealed.
At least we know what the service will cost. 7.99 euros per month will be due for the Paramount+ subscription. This undercuts the competition for Disney+ (8.99 euros) and is on par with Amazon Prime Video, whose subscription also costs 7.99 euros per month.
Paramount+ also included in Sky subscription
In cooperation with Sky, customers of the Cinema subscription can enjoy Paramount+ at no additional cost at the German launch. However, the new streaming service is also offered separately and features its own app on Android and iOS to stream directly from a smartphone or tablet.
Otherwise, only supported smart TVs will be equipped with their own app at launch. Details about the offer for the German market have not yet been announced. However, there will also be special formats developed specifically for the German-speaking region.
Paramount+ movies and series
So far, Paramount+ is already available in the U.S., Canada, Australia and soon in the UK. The streaming service focuses on content from the Paramount film studio, but also includes content from ViacomCBS – until March 04, 2021, the service still operated as CBS All Access.
The most important own brands include the Star Trek series Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek Picard and Star Trek: Lower Decks. But the lineup also includes series such as Interrogation, iCarly and Rugrats, as well as the video game adaptation Halo.
For the German market, Paramount+ also plans to produce its own series. Among them is A Thing Line, which revolves around two hackers, Anna (Saskia Rosendahl) and Benni (Hanna Hilsdorf). They are sisters and try to uncover environmental crimes.
It is unknown how much content from the US counterpart will also be included in the German catalog. In the UK, the new streaming service will already take the stage on June 22, and in Italy it should then be ready from September 2022.
After Peacock at the beginning of the year, which is however exclusively included in the Sky subscription, this is the second new streaming service to come to Germany in 2022.
