After the controversial decision to yank Star Trek: Discovery from Netflix's UK servers, the signs for the Paramount+ streaming service launching here were ever clearer. And now it has an official arrival date: 22 June.

Paramount has announced that the service - home to not only the various Trek shows (including the Anson Mount-starring Strange New Worlds, which chronicles the adventures of Captain Pike and co. before Kirk's time on the Enterprise), Godfather behind-the-scenes miniseries The Offer, Yellowstone, South Park and more, including the movies already available.

Oh, and Jackass, following the success of Jackass Forever, will be returning to its small screen roots for a new series, but with zero details as to cast or content (beyond the sheer stupidity we expect) announced yet.

The service will cost £6.99 per month/£69.90 per year in the UK and Ireland, after a free seven-day trial for the ad-free version. Whether Paramount will also offer the cheaper ad-supported tier as available in the States remains to be seen. Sky Cinema customers will be able to access Paramount+ at no extra cost.

A bigger question is whether people will want to shell out even more money for yet another streaming service, even when it finally able to extract its various shows from other UK streaming/airing deals.
