It will therefore be in December 2022 that the streaming service will make its arrival in France. Like Disney+ in 2019, the latter chose Canal+ to expand its distribution. Thus, subscribers to Cine Series package will enjoy unlimited access to the platform. On the other hand, a subscription to Canal+ will not be necessary to view Paramount+ content.
