CBS All Access is growing up and has given itself a whole new look and name. In the future, the Paramount + Umbrella brand aims to reach the general public from entertainment, news and live sports events to major series and film events. To satisfy the hunger for content and stand out for competitors such as Disney + and Netflix, the company has announced a large number of major in-house productions. One of the biggest figureheads, the sci / fi event series was originally announced for Showtime Aura, Will migrate directly to Paramount + in early 2022 and may be a possible response to HBO-Photo like new game of Thrones-Sun Dragon house or The last of us to become.

Another mainstay of the streaming service will be cinema movies. Paramount does not yet see any reason for parallel VOD and theatrical releases, but the time window for cinema exclusivity is narrowing significantly. In some cases, such as large Paramount projects such as A quiet place 2 or Mission impossible 7, It should be only 30 to 45 days in future.
All other Paramount films, including those distributed for MGM or United Artists, will be available on Paramount + 90 days after their theatrical release. Warner’s advancement in this area has also left its mark on Paramount parent company Viacom. However, people still believe in the future of cinema, it says.
Unlike the streaming competition, Paramount + also wants to stay away through an ad-financed payment model. Those who do not value the freedom of advertising and can do without Paramount’s wide range of 30,000 hours of television entertainment and 2,500 films will receive a de facto regular membership for at least ten US dollars with a $ 5 entry tariff. Options will be found, but also live like a small commercial break with a classic TV station.
Paramount + in Germany too?
Perhaps the most important question: When can German audiences participate in all this? There is still no statement from the official side, except that no start in Germany is planned for the time being. A first international stopover will occur towards the end of the year, with other countries to follow in 2022. Due to various licensing conditions, Paramount + starts with a proposal that is revised depending on the country.
Starting March 4, the 2021 Paramount + will initially be available in the USA, Canada and Latin America. Scandinavian countries will follow on 25 March.
