Will Sonic the Hedgehog come to Netflix?
There is a good chance that Sonic the Hedgehog will eventually come to Netflix.
Paramount Pictures has always had a good relationship with Netflix. The two companies even signed a multi-picture film deal in November 2018. However, new Paramount Pictures titles rarely head to Netflix, especially in the US. Sonic the Hedgehog will most likely appear on Netflix outside the US.
Netflix Canada will most likely get Sonic the Hedgehog first. Most Paramount titles appear on Netflix Canada after the end of their theatrical runs. We expect that Sonic the Hedgehog will appear on Netflix Canada before the end of 2020.
Sonic the Hedgehog will also appear in regions such as the UK and Australia after 2-3 years.
Where will Sonic the Hedgehog be available for streaming?
We expect that Sonic the Hedgehog will be available for US viewers on Epix. Paramount Pictures currently has a long-term deal with MGM-owned Epix. The deal is set to run up to 2022.
