Channel 10 rebrands their All Access streaming service as Paramount+… with plans to show blockbusters like Mission Impossible 7 just 45 days after cinemas

Channel 10 has announced plans to rebrand its 10 All Access streaming service as Paramount+.

The TV network’s boss Beverley McGarvey said the new service, which debuts on August 11, will have ‘four times what we have currently’ in terms of content, in an interview with News.com.au.

The Chief Content Officer also admitted ambitions to release blockbuster movies like Mission Impossible 7 on the service just 45 days after cinemas.

That would bring the Australian service in line with its US counterpart, which made the shift from CBS All Access to Paramount+ earlier this year. 

‘Obviously that’s something we would love,’ said McGarvey of halving the release window from Australia’s traditional 90 days.

‘We’re just working through all the technical details,’ said the executive.

Other films that will be available on Paramount+ are Top Gun: Maverick and a Quiet Place Part II.

McGarvey also estimated Paramount+ will include approximately 20,000 TV episodes. 

New content being made for the US service that will likely make its way onto Australian screens includes The First Lady with Viola Davis and Gillian Anderson and a revival of the serial killer TV drama Dexter.
