Halo fans take note: Paramount+ is coming to the UK on June 22


Those in the UK and Ireland who have been waiting for the debut of Paramount+, bringing with it the new Halo series, are in for a treat. The streamer has confirmed that it will debut on screens on June 22.

Variety reports that Paramount made the announcement during its quarterly earnings call earlier today, with the company also announcing expansion plans for the rest of the world, including Europe and Asia.

Raffaele Annecchino, President and CEO, International Networks, Studios and Streaming, Paramount Global, said: “This year will be monumental for our streaming strategy as we accelerate our global ambitions, rapidly expanding Paramount+ in Europe starting with the UK, Italy , Germany, France and more by the end of this year and our Asia debut with South Korea in June, followed by India in 2023. With an already extensive presence in the global market and a strong long-term market-by-market strategy, we are well positioned to continue our positive momentum.”

As for the UK and Ireland, subscribers will pay £6.99 per month or £69.90 per year to watch Paramount+ content. However, those who are already Sky Cinema subscribers will get Paramount+ for free; It’s not yet clear if this will extend to Now Cinema, Sky’s streaming-only arm. Sky will add Paramount+ to its satellite TV and Sky Glass offerings this year, though it’s not immediately clear if it will stick with the same June 22 launch date.

For everyone else, Paramount+ will be available via apps on various platforms, including streaming devices and smart TVs.

In terms of the £6.99 price tag, Paramount+ will cost about the same out of pocket as Disney+ and slightly more than the Apple TV+ offering. Still, the best deal will obviously go to Sky customers who get the new content for free, although they’re paying for Sky, so who really wins here?
