Stan subscribers can expect hundreds of new titles now that the Nine-owned streaming service has just signed a deal with Paramount Pictures. Classics like The Godfather and future releases such as Looking for Alaska will be some of the fresh titles to debut on Stan.
In today’s changing entertainment landscape, streaming becomes the go-to platform for all things fiction (or nonfiction). In Australia, there’s a long list of excellent options to choose from — awesome features, reasonable pricing. But, in the end, it all comes down to content.
Stan Teaming Up with Paramount
The ink that finalised Stan’s deal with Paramount may still be wet, but it’s already expected to transform the streaming service’s offerings content-wise dramatically. Stan chief executive Mike Sneesby believes that “Stan is best positioned in Australia to take advantage” of the new means people consume entertainment. And what other way to optimise Stan’s capacity to deliver than to partner with Paramount, one of the world’s greatest content creators.
To add, Stan also has strong partnerships with Starz, MGM, and CBS-owned Showtime. Meanwhile, their deal with Disney ends later this year as a result of rival streaming service Disney+ launching on November 19. However, it may not be the end of a fruitful relationship as Stan is believed to be one of the frontrunners vying to secure a future partnership with the entertainment giant.
Exclusive Content to Stream on Stan
The new Paramount arrangement will bring in many of its most significant and exclusive classics, which include The Godfather trilogy, Top Gun, Mission Impossible, and the Star Trek franchises, among others. Users will see more blockbusters getting into Stan’s already hefty library of shows and movies.
Moreover, Looking for Alaska, an adaptation of John Green’s book, will be added to the service in October. Upcoming Paramount TV shows are also part of the recently inked partnership, including Made for Love, The Spy Who Came In From The Cold, Station 11 and The Vampire Chronicles.
The widely anticipated The Great, which stars Elle Fanning and Nicholas Hoult and is produced for Hulu, will premiere on Stan in 2020. It follows the story of Catherine the Great and her rise to power in Russia. Plus Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio reunite in another Hulu-produced limited series Devil in the White City.
What Else to Expect?
With the new Paramount deal, there’ll be hundreds of new movies and shows to join Stan’s highly impressive library of content. From award-winning classics to the latest box office hits, it’s easy to find something you like. It’s also easy to try the service with a 30 day free trial.
