our advice

SkyShowtime looks a lot like another American party that wants to break into the European market. So far they’ve made a good effort to do so, but with their current market position and offerings, they seem to have little to really set themselves apart from the competition.

In the next few years, the streaming service may become a major player given a little more time, as Paramount and Comcast have enough strong weapons at their disposal. After the merger, it will be clear if they can make full use of it.

For now, fans of specific series, like yellow stone of auraThey consider themselves lucky with SkyShowtime, but for the rest of the viewers it may be better to wait a while before buying it.
