Are we getting free Paramount+ access if we have Sky Cinema?

I have just recently read that ViacomCBS has done a deal with Sky.

SkyQ customers will be able to add Paramount+ to their subscription, and Sky Cinema subscribers will get it included for free.

Does this mean that Virgin Sky Cinema subscribers will also get it?

Also - whether it's included in our packages or not, will there be an official channel for it like there is for Netflix and Amazon Prime?

Also is there an app or channel for Disney+ ?

"To help ferry Paramount Plus across the Atlantic, owner ViacomCBS is partnering with Sky Group in the UK, which means freebies for some Sky members. Sky Q customers will be able to add the new streaming service to their existing plan, and Sky Cinema customers will get Paramount Plus included for free."

Re: Are we getting free Paramount+ access of we have Sky Cinema?

Although I don't know for sure judging by Sky's previous actions I'd say no

I'd only add that the "official channel" you mention for Netflix & Prime, is just a red-button placeholder for the streaming app.

By definition, streaming services are not linear broadcast channels.

Have to agree, I would be *very* surprised if Sky Movie viewers on VMO2 were offered any such option.

Indeed, but it is very handy being able to select it from the EPG rather than having to switch TV input toa separate streaming device or load a smart TV app
