@Clinton11 I kinda get the feeling that Paramount is tied to a commercial arrangement with Sky which blocks them going on any other Pay TV networks for the first year. This would also explain the lack of content and 4K HDR. Especially on their movies because some stuff pops up on Sky Cinema still. Once this deal expires, I'd imagine it popping up on Youview and other platforms and they'll mysteriously solve their 4K HDR technical issue. Discovery+ had a similar lock out but after 12 months, it popped up on Roku, Firesticks and as a Prime Channel

I suspect the most interesting thing that will happen to BT TV in 2023 is it being renamed EE TV, 2 years after EE TV closed.

@NigelB7

The International version of Paramount+ app (outside the US) e.g Australia doesn't offer 4K it isn't because of Sky.


Virgin have already confirmed Paramount+ will be added on there this year

@martin93 I wonder if it's a wider rights issue then

Re: What's new bt TV 2023

I got Paramount+ at launch as I have Sky Cinema on Q, but I rarely watch it on the box, most of my app viewing is done on my Apple TV 4K as the apps (excluding Netflix), are all part of the universal search and can be added to my watch list.

I don't think there are any rights issues or Sky exclusive deal in place because I could watch content immediately on my Apple TV and iOS devices at launch, but it is HD and 5.1 only on any device in the UK as far as I have seen.

Seems to be a technical decision for some reason as 4K UHD, HDR, Dolby Vision and Atmos is available on certain titles on the US version and the Apple TV 4K is a supported device, so would be able to show it if enabled.

Whenever or however you get it (if you do), Yellowstone is highly recommended.
