Paramount+ is now on my Roku stick, disappointingly it doesn't have HDR or Dolby Vision and the streams seem only 1080p too

They will support it 4K and HDRat a later date apparently but no Dolby Atmos only 5.1 Dolby.

Bit confusing this post it says no Atmos then it says there will be.

The difference between the present and the future, presumably, snoop.

Thanks, I guess they will get me paying for their content at a later date too!

I'll wait too. I'm really keen to see Strange New Worlds in 4k. Pretty sure the other series are all HD even if Discovery was in HDR on Netflix.

Might be waiting a while, Paramount+ launched in Australia last August as rebrand of 10 All Access and still has no 4K or Dolby Atmos.

Re: Streaming services news, offers and general chit chat

I have Sky Cinema with SkyQ and get Paramount+ for free.
I have had a look at the content and it’s very thin on the ground for the wow factor anyway.
They have sections for channels such as Comedy Central and MTV etc. CC only has 6 programmes listed but mind you all it seems to show these days is Friends back to back all day every day.

There is certainly not enough to make me want to pay £6.99 for that’s for sure.

Re: Streaming services news, offers and general chit chat

Think given how little content is on UK Paramount+ they're taking the pee asking for £6.99p/m, maybe they should do a introduction price of say £3.99p/m until they get more content.
So in the words of Peter Jones "i'm out."

For anyone with Xbox Game Pass wanting to try Paramount+ there is a 30 day trial coming to Game Pass on 28th June.

I agree. Iím not even prepared to pay £3.99 for it at the moment.

I think ITVX might prove to be better value when it launches.
