    I signed up, new customer. Did what they said picked annually, says my billing starts in 7 days after trial.

    It says in the link that a code will be auto added. Didn't for me.

    It says in the terms you'll be charged the monthly rate after the extended trial in gbp

    Maybe it's UK only 🤷 I sent them a mail, See what they say.

    I didn’t get to sign up new account - the option was to sign up for news, not an account. But clicking submit on that didn’t do anything either

    Actually had the same issue but only realised after I posted. Have emailed Paramount support

    They came back and said they were escalating it to a manager to see what the craic is. If I hear anything I'll post back.

    Meh.... I don't even want it 😂

    Nothing in the giveaways section for me anyway 🤷‍♂️ maybe they pulled it as it's not working correctly?



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,936 ✭✭✭0ph0rce0


    Yeah seems to be gone now here too.

    If it comes back we aren't new customers now haha

    Bastids!!!!!



  • Registered Users Posts: 156 ✭✭icarus86


    Did anything ever come of this? Anyone else hear anything back?

    Never heard anything, due to be charged tomorrow so cancelled it. Going to get onto Sky but offer is gone from the app since

    I got an email back from them to say it was for the United Kingdom only.


    "Thank you for coming back to us. Please be advise that unfortunately this promotion is not available for customers in Ireland, as per the terms that should have been included in the email you received.

    If you have any questions about this, we would ask you to please reach out to Sky to discuss this further with them.

    If you have any questions, please visit our help center or contact us at support@paramountplus.com"

    Worst bargain alert ever, nearly cost me 70 quid 😂



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,452 ✭✭✭ads20101


    bloody hell - I really thought I was going to get some free star trek tonight 😒



  • Registered Users Posts: 484 ✭✭ECookie13


    LOL How many will get stung by this? Shocking carry-on, not to even offer a free month or something.

    Worst non-bargain of the year 😂

    For anyone who managed to sign up for this and received the email from Sky with the code I managed to get it sorted. You need a VPN

    Set VPN for UK, new incognito window, paste in the link, sign up, 12 months free. Done



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,936 ✭✭✭0ph0rce0


    Spot on.

    Glad I didn't delete my trash in gmail. 👍️


    EDIT... I Wouldn't even bother, biggest load of shite content I've ever seen. No wonder they are giving it away.



  • Registered Users Posts: 484 ✭✭ECookie13


    The US paramount is far better than this rubbish app.



  • Registered Users Posts: 4,719 ✭✭✭ablelocks


    i'm getting an error on postal code in the payment processing page - did you use a uk code or switch off the vpn at that point?

    edit - use a UK or NI postal code if you get this error and it works fine.

    also, it didn't work in chrome incognito mode, but did in MS Edge incognito

    thanks crazyderk!

    there's a few good series on it - yellowjacket, 1923, yellow jacket, halo, star trek picard stand out on first run thru.

    I used revolut to sign up and used their london address for billing

    7 Westferry Circus, London E14 4HD, United Kingdom

    VPN set to london.

    EDIT. Just noticed your edit 😂
