I ask as it seems quite a lot of their shows air on Sky.
Sky and Paramount+ will share content as the latter will be integrated into Sky Cinema.

I think it will be very cut-down - like Peacock is.
Unlike Peacock, Paramount+ will have a stand-alone app with shared content between Sky and Paramount.

Re: Streaming services news, offers and general chit chat

I know - but that doesn't mean the content will be the same or even similar.

There are currently movies free to subscribers on P+ in US which have only just been added to Sky Store for purchase.

I can't see them providing most of the live streaming channels either.

Re: Streaming services news, offers and general chit chat

Some of the current CBS shows Paramount don't own the international rights to and i suspect the 3 FBI shows Paramount have a obligation to take them to market internationally with them being a NBC Universal/Wolf Entertainment format.

Re: Streaming services news, offers and general chit chat

I can't see Sky letting P+ UK show FBI trilogy before the Sky channels have aired them.

Blue Bloods starts Series 12 on Sky Witness next week - but the whole series is complete on P+ US. Again - can't see Sky letting let go either.

Re: Streaming services news, offers and general chit chat

On Paramount+ US - all 20 episodes of Season 12 are available to view now - the series ended in May on CBS.

The UK is way behind - as with many US series - and only gets episode 1 of season 12 next week.

Similar situation with the FBI trilogy.

It all depends on the contracts between the two companies. If the content is owned by Viacom then I'm sure it will move to Paramount + eventually once the contract with Sky is up. Of course, if Paramount + is not as successful as they hope in the UK, then they may prefer to licence some content to Sky.

It certainly will. Although the extent to which these are sustainable is up for debate. However with an extensive back catalogue and without the eye watering debt levels of Netflix they should be better placed longer term.

Re: Streaming services news, offers and general chit chat

TBH all these services just encourage piracy and the hunt for work arounds to get it cheap.

I do feel if they all come together and charged a fair price they would make more money but that will never happen

It could work. If all content was available in a streaming cloud, viewers could subscribe for a service with various tiers of content and pay per view, with content providers paid according to the number of viewers who watch their content.

That, I think, would be more viewer-friendly than requiring everyone to subscribe to lots of different streamers to view the maximum range of content.

Will it happen? Not in my lifetime, I suspect.

the second you start charging pay per view all value for money out the window. People will pay a fortune for Sky just for Sports so it is not out the question someone would pay say 15 to 20 quid per month for an all in one bundle which includes all the main subs but as it stands no one wants to pay the combined cost which would end up a stupid price

I pay about 60 a year and this gives me access to everything by other means plus 5 Netflix 4 Prime 1 Tidal and 1.20 for youtube premium and this gives me value for money. I would be prepared to pay for premium subs if it was fair while it is not I will not

If it had, there wouldn't be any of their customers still using TiVo based boxes. I'll be a support contact now.
