The summer is behind us, and Paramount+ UK is adding more content subscribers can enjoy at home, so we can now reveal the films and TV shows that will be coming to the streaming service in September.
Some of the notable new additions that are coming next month: American Gigolo, the highly anticipated new drama series starring Jon Bernthal, The Survivalist starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers, and – for those guilty pleasure enthusiasts out there – a full season of Millionaire Holiday Home Swap.
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 (although there are coupons that can give you a 30-days trial).
The standalone Paramount+ app is available on most (but not all) of the major streaming devices and Smart TVs sold in the UK, 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.
