There are often other extended offers linked to new shows. Previous codes include NACHOS, STARTREKDAY and SOUTHPARK.

Sky TV: Free with Sky Cinema subscription
Anyone who pays for Sky Cinema via Sky Glass or Sky Q (not via NOW TV) will get Paramount+ for free. Bearing in mind the cost of this vs getting those same movies from NOW, then it’s not really much of a saving – especially as you’ll likley be tied into a longer contract.
Personally I’d only get each service as and when I wanted to watch something on them – that’ll work out much cheaper.
