Paramount+ Rolls Out in Germany, Austria & Switzerland


Following the launch of Paramount+ in France on December 1, the service has now extended its footprint to include Germany, Austria and Switzerland, bringing it to a total of 45 markets.

Marco Nobili, executive VP and international general manager of Paramount+, commented: “There is no doubt 2022 has been the year of global expansion for Paramount+. With the latest launch in Germany, Switzerland and Austria, and France last week, we are now streaming in key markets in North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia, Australia and soon in India. With our unbeatable content offering to entertain the entire family, deployed across such a vast footprint, we are well-positioned to continue our momentum in 2023.”

Paramount+’s slate for the GAS countries features the German originals Der Scheich, in which filmmaker Dani Levy tells the story of a one-of-a-kind con artist; a sixth season of the Nickelodeon series Spotlight, set at the Berlin School of Arts; the crime thriller Simon Beckett’s Chemistry of Death; the eco-cyber thriller series A Thin Line; and Kohlrabenschwarz, based on the mystery audio drama series of the same name.

In addition to a selection of international reality shows, Paramount+ will launch exclusive German reality highlights starting in December, including Germany Shore.

Paramount+ becomes available on mobile devices and a wide range of connected TV devices via distribution through Apple, Amazon, Google, Samsung, Roku and more. It will also launch on Sky platforms in Germany and Austria. Through this agreement, Sky subscribers with Sky Cinema will have access to Paramount+ content at no additional cost, and the Paramount+ app will launch on Sky Q. In French-speaking Switzerland, Paramount+ will be exclusively distributed via Canal+ as part of the offers CANAL+ Famille, CANAL+ Ciné Séries and CANAL+ La Totale.
