Netflix. Binge. Stan. Disney+. Fetch. ABC iview. SBS On Demand. There are heaps of streaming services in Australia already, with HBO Max due to launch at some point too. But from today there’s a new service to add to the list: Paramount+, which comes with thousands of hours of new TV and lots of oldies as well (Grease, Top Gun and The Big Bang Theory, for example).
There are lots of Showtime, MTV, Nick, Paramount and Comedy Central shows, as well as new and exclusive things to watch. Madonna’s documentary film Madame X will debut on the service in October, and right now you can see new action sci-fi Infinite starring Mark Wahlberg, or Maisie Williams’s six-part revenge comedy, Two Weeks To Live. Paramount Pictures flick A Quiet Place is also on there.
Coming soon is an original, Australian-made drama series, Spreadsheet, featuring UK actress Katherine Parkinson (The IT Crowd) alongside Stephen Curry, Robbie Magasiva (Wentworth), Rowan Witt, Katrina Milosevic, Ryan Shelton, Zahra Newman, Tina Bursill and Richard Piper.
Fans of Dexter might want to tune into a special series coming soon to the service, Dexter: New Blood, and anyone missing music festivals IRL this year should look out for new Australian film 6 Festivals featuring G Flip, Dune Rats, Alison Wonderland, Peking Duk and others.
Paramount+ is available online via connected TV devices such as Apple TV, Google TV, Fetch TV and Sony Bravia. It’s $8.99 per month or $89.99 for an annual subscription. New subscribers can access a free seven-day trial.
