The channel was launched on 4 July 2018[5], but ceased to be available via satellite in Ireland on 13 July 2018 having supposedly been made available only by mistake[6], even though the channel had been promoted to Irish viewers before launch.[7] The channel can still be accessed on Sky Ireland by adding it via the extra channel.

The channel launched a high-definition feed exclusively on Virgin Media on 21 July 2018.[8][9]

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.[10] On Freeview, [11] Paramount Network +1 was going to be launched on channel 94, but failed to launch.[12]. The timeshift channel ceased broadcasting on 14 July 2020.
