Paramount+ is expanding the reach of its streaming service.

Paramout+ is expanding its reach, finally, across the continent of Europe. Nations listed by Paramount who will be getting the streaming home to Star Trek (and other shows) can expect to see the service arrive in 2022.

First up seems to be Italy, who will gett Paramount+ in September. Not long after that will be Germany, Switzerland, Austria, and France by the end of the year in December. These rollouts were expected and announcing them before the launch of the service in The United Kingdom and Ireland this week was well-timed.

They weren’t the only ones to get in on the action, however, as South Korea got the service this past week as well. That means they’ll join the growing list of countries with access to Star Trek’s Prodigy, Strange New Worlds, the collected works of Deep Space Nine, Voyager and so many others.

And Halo, for whatever that’s worth.

That’s not all, as Paramount is apparently doing 150 international originals over the next three years. Variety has a breakdown on some of them if you want to check that out.

What about the rest of the continent?

For those who haven’t gotten Paramount+ yet, there seems to be something coming your way, at least if you have Comcast. According to Paramount, a new service is coming to cable providers called SkyShowtime, which will launch this year. The service will broadcast original Paramount+ shows, as well as other items from Showtime (which is a CBS property) and somehow NBC’s Peacock service.

The countries listed to get the service include; Albania, Andorra, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Hungary, Kosovo, Montenegro, Netherlands, North Macedonia, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, and Sweden. So basically the Eastern part of the continent.

The lineup for the channel has not been revealed at the time but for Trek fans in Europe who don’t have access to the streaming service, it makes sense Star Trek would be included.
