(pocket-lint) – Paramount+ has been successfully launched in the UK and Ireland, available in North America since the passing of CBS All Access in March 2021. However, unlike its US cousin, we’ve found that the streaming quality is locked to Full HD max.

At this time, it is not possible to stream Paramount+ TV shows or movies in 4K HDR or with Dolby Atmos support. These options are available to premium customers of the platform in the US, with some shows including Dolby Vision, but UK audiences are currently limited to 1080p and 5.1 sound.

That may soon change, thankfully.

A spokesperson for Paramount+ told Pocket-lint that “further development is planned for the foreseeable future.”

To be honest, it makes sense. The last thing a new streaming service wants is for its technology to break at the first hurdle, or miss out on the promised experience for its customers. Once stabilized and the number of daily users is established, it can increase performance and quality. We have already seen this with other services.

In the meantime, you can watch Full HD renditions of Halo, Star Trek: Discovery, 1883 and Star Trek: Strange New Worlds – shows that have disappeared from other platforms or are new in the UK.

Paramount+ costs £6.99 per month or £69.90 for a one-year subscription. Sky Q and Sky Glass users with a Sky Cinema subscription can access the service at no additional cost. Click here to learn more.
