Sky Extends ViacomCBS Deal

Sky has expanded its partnership with ViacomCBS, making the prospect of a Paramount+ launch even less likely than previously.

Here’s the media release:

Sky and ViacomCBS announce a major multi-year extension of their partnership with the addition of exclusive content and streaming rights for Neon.

Sky and ViacomCBS Global Distribution Group have announced a new deal that expands on their current partnership and welcomes a range of content across Sky Box (including Sky On Demand and streamed on Sky Go) and now Neon.

The new broader deal will include fantastic content Sky and Neon customers already have access to through the extensive agreement with ViacomCBS that includes a huge variety of content from SHOWTIME and Paramount Television Studios programming.

Sky Movies customers will continue to have access to great Paramount Pictures content including new movies as well as classics, and now Neon customers have full access for the first time.

Sky and Neon’s customers can look forward to a range of new blockbuster hits such as A Quiet Place Part II and Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins, alongside others the whole family will love with PAW Patrol: The Movie and Clifford The Big Red Dog.

They will also have access to classics such as Top Gun, Forrest Gump, Pulp Fiction and many more.

Sky Chief Executive Sophie Moloney said: “We’re super excited to expand on our long partnership with ViacomCBS Global Distribution Group by offering a fantastic slate of films to our Sky Box customers as well as to our Neon customers going forward.

“A broad range of content is key to our role as the preferred content aggregator in the New Zealand market, and our partnerships with the world’s leading entertainment providers ensures that we have the best content for our customers.”

“By extending our successful partnership with Sky New Zealand, we have ensured that Sky Box and Neon subscribers all around New Zealand will be able to enjoy premium content from SHOWTIME and a fantastic selection of Hollywood movies from Paramount Pictures,” says Lisa Kramer, President, International Television Licensing, ViacomCBS Global Distribution Group.

  1. Guess this complements the TVNZ deal posted about a few weeks ago? No mention of Prime here obviously. As for P+, dead in the water here for sure.

  2. When Paramount+ said they were coming to New Zealand they should have honoured it even if it was a stupid mistake by the media ?

  3. This is great news. Would’ve sucked if P+ had’ve come to NZ, just another streaming service to subscribe to and more $$$$.
    Phil – do you know who is showing the Yellowstone prequel 1883?

  4. Have been trying to find out re 1883 but everyone’s being very coy about their ViacomCBS content. Hope to post update this week ?
