Paramount+ Greenlights UK Version Of MTV’s ‘Are You The One?’

  Paramount+ Greenlights UK Version Of MTV’s ‘Are You The One?’ Paramount+ is forging a UK version of MTV U.S. matchmaking series Are You The One? from Geordie Shore producer Lime Pictures. The show will debut on the streamer’s UK platform and MTV channels outside the U.S. later this year. Hosted by British presenter Joelah Noble in the UK, the format follows 20 unlucky-in-love people who are scientifically matched with 10 of their fellow contributors. If they can uncover all 10, they could find both love and a cash prize, as they are paired with a potential match each week  to take part in challenges and see if they gel.

In an effort to compete with Amazon Prime, Walmart announced Monday that it has reached a deal with Paramount to offer Paramount+ as a free perk to subscribers of its shopping subscription service Paramount+.

With the addition of Paramount+, we are demonstrating our unique ability to help members save even more and live better by delivering entertainment for less, too," Chris Cracchiolo, SVP and general manager of Walmart+, said in a statement. "Paramount+ has the premium content and broad appeal that our members are looking for - like Walmart, they have something for everyone. We're excited about the launch and what comes next for Walmart+."

For years, Amazon has included access to its Prime Video streaming service as part of its Prime membership package, which includes free shipping on items purchased on the Amazon website and costs $14.99/month or $139/year. Walmart says the Paramount+ perk will not increase its price point, which is $12.95/month or $98/year. Terms of the deal between Walmart and Paramount were not disclosed.

Walmart has not disclosed the number of Walmart+ subscribers, but Paramount reported 4.9 million new Paramount+ subscribers in its second quarter earnings call, bringing the streamer's total to over 43 million subscribers. The Walmart deal could help increase Paramount+'s subscriber count as it looks to compete with top streaming competitors like Netflix and Disney+.
