Paramount Pictures' big titles at Australian streaming service Stan

With Disney Plus launching in Australia this November, there's been a lot of speculation about what's going on at Stan's current library. If his short-term deals with the Walt Disney Company don't disappear when Disney Plus goes down under, subscribers don't have to worry about how Stan's library will remain – ahem – Titanic.

Nine Entertainment, an Australian-owned streaming platform, has just announced that it has entered into a long-term partnership with Paramount Pictures, giving it exclusive rights to a host of TV shows and movies.

One of the first new releases to arrive on Stan will be the network's adaptation of John Green's novel Looking Alaska, and it will be available to stream from October.

Other new paramount TV shows to be added to Stan's library in the future are Great Made for Love, The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, and a prequel to Sexy Beast.

And of course, the vast library available will find a home on Stan over the coming weeks – Australians will be able to watch Mission: Impossible: The Movies, feel the need for speed with the top gun, go where no man has gone before with the original Star Trek series and find out what Revenge is a dish best served cold from The Godfather trilogy.

"Paramount has been building a fantastic slate of premium scripted television series, in addition to its acclaimed box office and blockbusters, legendary film franchises and a library of classics," CEO Mike Sneesby Stan said in a statement. "We are thrilled to expand our relationship with Paramount through this new long term withdrawal agreement as part of our ongoing commitment to bring the world's greatest TV series and cinema to Australians."

With licenses already in place with Showtime, Starz and MGM, the new contract with Paramount Pictures shows Stan's emphasis on bringing content from major production houses, as opposed to rival Netflix, which is developing original content.
