Where Viaplay and HBO Max are still incredibly new to us Dutch, we can already reckon with the next Netflix competitor. The Netherlands can get ready for yet another new streaming service.
In the week that HBO Max has become available in our country, another American party is coming to conquer the market. SkyShowtime comes out officially for the first time.
SkyShowtime to come to the Netherlands in 2022
The year 2022 might just be the toughest year for Netflix in terms of competition. After HBO Max rolled out in our country this week, SkyShowtime is also making plans to conquer the Netherlands. It is a streaming service that has a huge range of interesting studios and parties. For example, content from the following companies can be found on the streaming service:
When exactly the streaming service will become available in the Netherlands is not known, but ViaPlay and HBO Max can get their feet wet. Just like Disney+, Amazon Prime Video and Netflix. Because of the cooperation between the various studios we can expect a lot of iconic and popular content. Think for example of the new Fresh Prince of Bel-Air series, all Star Trek content and Scream.
It is the first time that SkyShowtime actually expresses to come to the Netherlands. The company does so by means of a press release. Earlier there was already talk about a possible arrival, but it was not certain yet. This is now different.
Viaplay and HBO Max
So SkyShowtime, if all goes according to plan, will be the third streaming service that the Netherlands will have in 2022. Of course, at the beginning of this month we got access to Viaplay: the service where Dutch fans can admire Formula 1. Besides sports, it is also possible to watch darts, the Bundesliga or countless movies and series.
HBO Max launched last Tuesday and brought with it a gigantic offering. For example, all HBO content, but also that of Warner Bros. and Cartoon Network can be admired through the service. Best of all? If you sign up for a subscription before March 31, 2022, you get a 50% discount for the rest of your life!
