Hip Hip Hooray!

Paramount+ Celebrates Its First Birthday Down Under.

It’s official. The age of Australia’s premier streaming service Paramount+, will no longer be measured in days, weeks, or even months… because it’s a whole year old! Hip Hip Hooray!

Since August 2021, Aussies have laughed, cried and fallen in love with iconic star-studded hit drama series and feature films like 1883, HALO, Yellowjackets, The Gilded Age, Dexter: New Blood, South Park, All Star Shore, Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, Jerry & Marge Go Large and Honor Society, just to name a few.

Expect even more stars to enter our living rooms over the next year with Paramount+ Original and Exclusive series’ including the Owen Wilson superhero film Secret Headquarters (13 August); Susan Sarandon, Trace Adkins and Anna Friel in Monarch (13 September); novel-turned-thriller Let The Right One In (8 October); Sylvester Stallone in Tulsa King (14 November); Helen Mirren and Harrison Ford in the Yellowstone prequel 1923; Andrew Scott as Tom Ripley in Ripley; Shailene Woodley, Betty Gilpin and DeWanda Wise in Three Women; all new dramas Teen Wolf, Walker: Independence, Wolf Pack, The Flatshare; plus the second seasons of hit US dramas Yellowjackets, Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, Tokyo Vice, The Gilded Age, Mayor of Kingstown, Queen of the Universe and HALO.

With 12 Australian commissions announced since launch, Paramount+ has broken a first-year record for any streaming service in Australia. Cue the confetti cannons!

Beverley McGarvey, Executive Vice President and Chief Content Officer, Paramount ANZ, said: “Last August, we launched one of the world’s most recognised and popular streaming services Down Under, and today, 12 months later, we continue to celebrate with an extraordinary breadth and depth of content from all genres.

“Our ever-expanding library of original series, hits shows, popular movies and live sports, not to mention 12 local commissions, has seen Paramount+ grow exponentially.

“We are extremely proud of this service and our premium offering continues to grow with the addition of upcoming local originals The Bridge, Last King of The Cross, 6 Festivals, Undressed, as well as the international Emirates FA Cup, that will have everyone peaking with excitement.”

Who can resist our epic selection of home-grown entertainment? From Five Bedrooms, More Than This, Spreadsheet, The Secrets She Keeps and Couples Therapy Australia, to upcoming titles The Bridge Australia (19 August); 6 Festivals (25 August); Sky Blue: Inside Sydney FC (30 September); transformation series Undressed (6 October); Couples Therapy Australia (season two); The Last King of The Cross and another brand new season of Five Bedrooms in the works, Paramount+ has you covered as you curl up on the sofa with a piece of birthday cake and cuppa in hand.

As the home of football in Australia, it’s been a football frenzy over the past 12 months, with all matches of the Liberty A-League Women and Isuzu UTE A-League Men seasons, then most recently the Winter Festival of Football and also the FA Community Shield between English Premier League champions Manchester City and FA Cup winners Liverpool, streamed live.

The non-stop Football action continues on Paramount+ with fans able to catch every minute of the AFC Champions League Round of 16 this month, before our national teams, the CommBank Matildas and Socceroos, play friendlies on home soil and in New Zealand throughout September, then the Emirates FA Cup commencing in November.

Our littlest subscribers have enjoyed new and exclusive original content from the number one entertainment brand for kids, Nickelodeon, including: Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years, PAW Patrol: The Movie, the iconic iCarly sitcom reboot, live-action The Fairly Odd Parents: Fairly Odder, all-new Rugrats and the new CG-animated kids series Star Trek: Prodigy, which is the first within the Star Trek Universe aimed at younger audience.

Still to come, the service will see the premiere of the new live-action movie musical, Monster High: The Movie, based on the iconic Monster High franchise; children’s book-turned-animated series Big Nate; a new Dora the Explorer CG-animated preschool series; and Transformers: Earth Spark.

Not only has Paramount+’s library of unmissable content increased exponentially over the year, so too has the number of ways subscribers can access the service.

Amazon Channels and Samsung recently joined Telstra TV, Fetch, Android TV, Apple TV, Web, Mobile (iOS and Android), Chromecast and a local partnership with the launch of Optus Sub Hub, with more ways and platforms to stream Paramount+ coming soon. Add in the ability to watch on up to three devices simultaneously… now that’s peak convenience!

Unique stories. Iconic stars. A mountain of entertainment. All at an amazing price, and commercial free. That’s a cause for celebration.

So, grab a party hat and join the celebrations on Paramount+, for just $8.99 per month for a monthly subscription or $89.99 for an annual subscription.
