Paramount+ UK is continuing to add more content to its local library, and we can now reveal some of the highlights that will be coming to the streaming service in August.
Some of the notable new additions that are coming next month: Yellowstone Season 4 (with weekly episodes), the new Beavis and Butt-Head reboot, Kevin Bacon’s City On A Hill Season 3, SkyMed, Jackass Forever and more.
Paramount+ is a streaming service that offers content from CBS, Showtime and Paramount Pictures, as well as exclusive, original programmes.
Paramount+ costs £6.99/month or £69.90/year in the UK, with a free 7-day trial available to everyone.
The standalone Paramount+ app is available on most (but not all) of the major streaming devices and Smart TVs, and you can sign up either directly via the Paramount+ app/website, or via Amazon Prime Video Channels.
Prime Video Channels require an Amazon Prime subscription, and you then subscribe to Paramount+ on top of that. You will then be able to watch Paramount+ on any device that supports the Prime Video app, not just those with the Paramount+ app.
Sky Cinema customers, who also have Sky Q or Sky Glass, can get Paramount+ for free.
In the UK, the service launched with 8,000 hours of content back in June, though we’re still missing a few big TV shows we were hoping to see.
Not to mention Sonic the Hedgehog 2, which has been available on the US version of Paramount+ for months – and is still nowhere to be seen in the UK.

Mike Judge’s Beavis and Butt-Head (New Season)
Weekly episodes available from August 5.
From Creator Mike Judge, the newly rebooted series features the iconic duo’s first original episodes in over 10 years.

After MTV commissioned a full series around the characters, Beavis and Butt-Head ran for seven seasons from March 8, 1993 to November 28, 1997.
The series was revived in 2011 with an eighth season airing on MTV. During its initial run, Beavis and Butt-Head received widespread critical acclaim for its satirical, scathing commentary on society. The show’s popularity spawned various related media, including the theatrical film Beavis and Butt-Head Do America in 1996.
The new series follows on the heels of the recently released and critically acclaimed Paramount+ original film Beavis And Butt-Head Do The Universe, which is now available to stream on the service in the UK.

Who Killed Meredith Kercher (Miniseries)
Full Season (2 Episodes) available from August 25.
On the morning of November 1 2007, in a small student flat in the medieval city of Perugia, British student Meredith Kercher’s bloodied body was found beneath a duvet on her bedroom floor.
Meredith’s flatmates had no idea that in just a few days her horrific murder would become a worldwide tabloid sensation, and would turn into not one, but three of the most controversial trials in history.
It became a story with characters who fascinated the media: Amanda Knox – aka ‘Foxy Knoxy’ – the larger-than-life American, whose strange behaviour while awaiting questioning became the stuff of social media speculation; Raffaele Sollecito – the introvert supposedly madly in
love with Knox, and prepared to do anything for her; Patrick Lumumba – the local bar owner whose name suddenly appeared in Knox’s apparent ‘confession’ to Italian police.
This two-part series will recall the investigation, the subsequent media circus and the multiple trials. It will reveal never-before-seen evidence from within the flat, and explore the circumstances that allowed the prime suspect to slip through net.
With access to the suspects, the journalists who covered the story, the prosecution and defence teams, and featuring footage shot with Rudy
Guede, the man widely thought to be the actual murderer of Meredith Kercher, this series will tell the tale of tragedy that became of the most
infamous and misunderstood crimes of all time.
We’ll update this article if more titles are announced throughout the month.
