As a certified Trekkie– Classic generation– I was impressed with the new Star Trek: Discovery series, but less impressed with how to watch it. Swapna Krishna:
In Canada, it aired on the Space channel, and in the rest of the world it was available on Netflix. But in the US, you needed CBS All Access, a standalone subscription service, to watch the show. Predictably, there was outrage.
Star Trek with a price tag.
The bottom line is that Star Trek: Discovery is going to stay on CBS All Access for the foreseeable future. There were hopes that CBS would cave and put episodes on Netflix for the second season or move the show to the main network. It’s safe to say that won’t happen.
People watch. People pay. Not me. I’ll wait for the re-runs.
