Streaming service Paramount + has launched in France, bringing a new selection of TV shows and films, including the Canal+ Ciné Séries package, for €7.99 per month.

In a statement, Marco Nobili, executive vice-president and international director general at Paramount + said: “We are proud to launch France Paramount +, the only service where you can find Sylvester Stallone, Spongebob Squarepants and Harrison Ford alongside recent films and classics that have impacted global cinema.”

It joins the ranks of streaming options in France, alongside MyCanal, OCS, Netflix, Prime Video, Lionsgate +, Disney+, Apple TV+, and Salto.

Paramount + first launched in the US in 2021. It is now also available in France, the UK, Canada, South America, Australia, Italy, Ireland, and South Korea. It already has 43 million subscribers worldwide.

How much does it cost? 

It costs €7.99 per month, or €79.90 for the year if paid annually.

It is available online and via the smartphone app, as well as through smart TVs and systems from Samsung, Apple, Roku, Amazon, and Google TV.

Orange subscribers can access the platform via channel 69 on the boxes STB4 and STB5, and get two months free before the €7.99 subscription begins. The offer applies from December 1 to May 31 2023, for new customers who joined Orange over the past 12 months.

TV shows will include Dexter, Billions, Yellowjackets, and South Park; as well as children’s shows such as Spongebob and Paw Patrol.

There will also be exclusive access to productions created by Paramount + and Showtime. This is set to include The Offer, a behind-the-scenes mini-series on the making of The Godfather. It will also include The First Lady, a mini-series starring Viola Davis, Michelle Pfieffer, and Gillian Anderson, set in the US First Lady’s office.

Mr Nobili said: “With more than a century of experience in the art of storytelling thanks to the prestigious Hollywood studios, and our production companies around the world, Paramount is unrivalled in creating a content offer that will please the wider public.”

Canal+ may also soon create limited series with Paramount + included.
