Paramount+ is continuing its global expansion into Asia as it sets to launch in Japan in December, bringing with it original content including Star Trek.
Paramount+ is going to Japan… with Star Trek
Paramount Global just announced the upcoming launch of the Paramount+ streaming service in Japan. They are partnering with J:COM, one of Japan’s top cable television and internet providers along with the premium pay channel Wowow. Paramount+ films and television series will be available in Japan via the on-demand services of both J:COM and Wowow, at no additional costs for their subscribers.
According to the announcement Star Trek: Strange New Worlds will be available at launch. It isn’t clear yet what other Star Trek content (both new originals and legacy shows and movies) will also be available at or after the December 1 launch in Japan.
Wowow also released a video promo about the announcement, but it doesn’t feature any of the Star Trek shows.
