Spain is going to have a new streaming platform. This was announced today by Comcast Corporation and ViacomCBS Inc. , In the form of a new agreement to create a video on demand (SVOD) service that will be available in more than 20 European territories covering more than 90 million households. Among those countries will be Spain.

The platform will feature original films and series from NBCUniversal, Sky and ViacomCBS such as SHOWTIME, Nickelodeon, Paramount Pictures, Paramount + Originals, Sky Studios, Universal Pictures and Peacock , so we found that there will be thousands of titles to choose from across all genres. and hearings.

SkyShowtime: New Streaming Platform

Arrival in 2022

This new streaming platform will arrive sometime in 2022, although it is still subject to approval by the regulatory entities of each country. Among the countries in which it will be available we will find Albania, Andorra, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Denmark, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain , Finland, Hungary, Kosovo, North Macedonia, Montenegro, Norway, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Czech Republic, Romania, Serbia and Sweden.

As we can see, some countries such as Italy, the United Kingdom, Germany, Switzerland or Austria will not have this new platform, where Paramount + will also be integrated into Sky from 2022.

New releases every month

In total, the platform will have more than 10,000 hours of entertainment , offering first screenings, new movies and TV season launches every month , as well as classic content that will be added to the platform.

At the moment the price that the subscription to the platform will have is not known. ViacomCBS and Comcast say they will release more details in the coming months, as well as the final release date that will take place next year. We will also have to wait to know the quality of the streaming, but it would be strange if they did not bet on 4K.

The creation of this streaming platform follows a path similar to that of HBO Max, unifying production companies on the same platform. In this case, we have the union of two giants and they will have a multitude of original content under their belt instead of launching two streaming platforms separately.

Movistar now offers some of its content

Currently, the content that will end up on this platform is usually seen on other services or on television operators. For example, Movistar has agreements to offer Universal content , in addition to the fact that everything new from Showtime also premieres directly on Movistar channels.

Among the contents that we will see on this new platform are the reboots of The Prince of Bel-Air or that of Saved by the Bell. There should also be Homeland, Shameless, Masters of Sex, Billions, and a long etcetera. The platform will confirm what content will be in the launch later, since they currently have several agreements in force with platforms such as Movistar +.

This platform, as we can see, will also feature Sky, whose attempt to penetrate Spain was a failure by doing it alone and with content that did not appeal much to the user. In this case, we will have much more content, both old and new, that will make the platform a new competitor against big names like Netflix, HBO Max, Amazon or Disney +.
