Paramount Network is a British free-to-air television channel operated by Channel 5 Broadcasting. It is a localised version of the American channel of the same name, and features a range of programming from the Channel 5 stable as well as other content from the UK and US.
The channel was launched on 4 July 2018, but ceased to be available via satellite in Ireland on 13 July 2018 having supposedly been made available by mistake, even though the channel had been promoted to Irish viewers before launch. The channel can still be accessed on Sky in Ireland by adding it manually via the 'Other Channels' menu option.
The channel launched a high-definition feed exclusively on Virgin Media on 21 July 2018.
On 7 January 2020, Paramount Network replaced 5Spike in its slots on Freeview, Sky and Virgin Media, and subsumed its +1 timeshift channel on Sky. The timeshift channel ceased broadcasting on 14 July 2020.
