(Pocket-lint) – Paramount + has been successfully launched in the UK and Ireland and has been available in North America since access to CBS in March 2021. However, unlike its American counterpart, we have found that the streaming quality is locked. Maximum Full HD.

At the moment, Paramount + TV shows or movies cannot be streamed with 4K HDR or Dolby Atmos support. These options are available in the US for premium subscribers of the platform, with Dolby Vision featuring some shows, but UK viewers are currently limited to 1080p and 5.1 sound.

That may change soon, thankfully.

A Paramount + spokesman told Pocket-Lind that “further improvements are planned for the future.”

Truth be told, it makes sense. The last thing a new streaming service wants is for its technology to break down at the first barrier or for its subscribers to lose the promised experience. Once stabilized and the number of daily users is established, it will increase performance and quality. We have already seen this with other services.

Meanwhile, you can watch full HD presentations of Halo, Star Trek: Discovery, 1883 and Star Trek: Strange New Worlds – Disappeared from other sites or new shows to the UK.

Paramount + is priced at £ 6.99 per month or £ 69.90 per year subscription. Sky Q and Sky Class users can access the service with a Sky Cinema subscription at no extra charge. To learn more, click here.
