Star Trek: Prodigy is coming to Paramount+ in the USA this fall, but we are now learning more about how fans will be able to watch the new kids’ animated series around the world.
Paramount+ and Prodigy coming to Europe, with help from Sky
Today ViacomCBS announced a new partnership with Sky (part of Comcast) that will bring the Paramount+ streaming service to Sky platforms in the UK, Ireland, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, and Austria in 2022. Paramount+ will become available as part of the Sky Q service and be included with Sky Cinema packages at no additional cost. Other Sky customers will be able to subscribe to Paramount+ as an add-on option.
Paramount+ will also be available direct-to-consumer in UK, Ireland, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, and Austria through the Paramount+ app for iOS and Android and across supported smart TVs and streaming devices.
Among the exclusive Paramount+ originals announced to be part of this European expansion is Star Trek: Prodigy. The new kids’ animated series will debut on Paramount+ in the USA and in Canada on CTV Sci-Fi this fall.
Set in the Delta Quadrant a few years after Star Trek: Voyager, the series aimed at younger viewers follows a group of alien teens who discover an abandoned Starfleet vessel, and set off on a series of adventures. The show includes the return of Kate Mulgrew playing the Emergency Training Hologram in the form of Captain Janeway, who will guide the young aliens in the ways of Starfleet.
There are no details yet for the availability of Prodigy in other markets, but ViacomCBS continues to expand internationally, including currently being available in Latin America, the Nordic countries, and in August will launch in Australia and New Zealand, with a goal to reaching 45 markets by 2022.
Other Star Trek series currently available in the Sky Europe markets on Netflix (Discovery), and Amazon Prime Video (Lower Decks) should remain with their current streaming partners. There is no news yet on the availability in Europe for the upcoming live-action series Strange New Worlds, which launches in 2022 on Paramount+ in the USA and Latin America, and on CTV Sci-Fi in Canada.
