The Wall Street Journal: Walmart reaches subscription video-streaming deal with Paramount+

by | Aug 15, 2022 | Stock Market

Walmart Inc.
 said it has agreed to a deal with Paramount Global
 to offer the entertainment company’s Paramount+ streaming service to subscribers of Walmart’s membership program. Walmart has been exploring a subscription video-streaming deal to draw more people to Walmart+ as it seeks to challenge Inc
, which has grown its own Prime membership program to about 200 million global members.

The companies agreed to a 12-month exclusivity agreement and a two-year deal that would give Walmart+ members access to Paramount’s ad-supported streaming service, according to people familiar with the deal. The perk will be available starting in September, Walmart said. Walmart’s announcement on Monday came after The Wall Street Journal reported the two companies had reached an agreement. Walmart is scheduled to announce quarterly earnings on Tuesday. Paramount Global runs the Paramount+ service, which has shows such as “Halo,” the “Star Trek” series and “Paw Patrol.” The company said this month that Paramount+ had more than 43 million subscribers at the end of its latest quarter.
