Star Trek returns to TV

CBS has announced that a new Star Trek series will premiere in January 2017, with the first episode airing on CBS and subsequent episodes on CBS All-Access streaming service. Per CBS Television Studios “The brand-new Star Trek will introduce new characters seeking imaginative new worlds and new civilizations, while exploring the dramatic contemporary themes that have been a signature of the franchise since its inception in 1966.”

This will be the first program developed specifically for CBS' online platform.

According to this, the pilot will be broadcast on CBS, then it'll move exclusively to CBS's pay streaming service. Pass.

This. I'm not paying $5.99 a month for episodes of a new Star Trek series.

Showrunner is Alex Kurtzman, so was heavily involved in the most recent 2 films:

Also pass. I hope it'll be available per-episode via iTunes/Google Play/Amazon; but it sounds like it won't be.

IMHO, it's setting up the show to fail- making it a CBS All Access exclusive, a brand new service with barely 100,000 SVOD subcribers.

I'd be interested in a new series, but not through CBS all access.

That's enough to kill any interest I might have, right there. Requiring a subscription to another streaming service is just one more nail in the coffin.

I don't want to pay $5.99 a month for their streaming service,. But I would pay $3 per episode to get it from Amazon or Vudu in 1080P24 with DD+. I just hope they make it available for purchase from the streaming services so the crappy CBS streaming service isn't the only option.

So do you know it's crappy by experience or are you saying that because CBS wants to charge for the new ST?

From the standpoint of this forum, one reason why it is crappy (there may be others) is that it doesn't allow us to enjoy the programming using our selected consumption environment, TiVo with TiVo trickplay and unrestricted skip ahead. Streaming services through TiVo do not afford us the TiVo trickplay and unrestricted skip ahead capability that we prefer.

I'd rather see a new Star Trek series on TV in HD rather than via a streaming service. But in any case, I don't have much hope that it will be good anyway. The last couple of Star Trek movies were pretty uninspiring, so if the series is anything in tone or style like those I don't hold much hope.

No personal experience. Just based on some of the reviews I read.

With a new Star Trek show I will watch it from CBS All Access if I have too. I just hope there is an option to purchase each episode from VUDU, Amazon XBL etc like other shows. Since that would be my preferred method.

Agreed on the purchase angle. And it'll be available by magical means for sure.

Even worse... CBS All Access has forced commercials, ala Hulu. No thanks! Not paying $6/mo so you can force me to watch commercials too.

Sucks that this show is going to get caught up in this mess, but I hope this service dies a quick death.

Add me to the pass list. Not a chance on earth I would pay for this service, regardless of what's on it.

If it were *buying* the episodes, I would probably pay it.. (assuming 4 episodes/month.)

I long ago thought they should do a Kickstarter for a season of Star Trek. As much as I think the individual episode prices for TV shows on _any_ of the services is ridiculous (because I watch so much TV), Trek is the one exception.. (Well, Blake's 7 too maybe, but the actors are way too old and I couldn't really imagine doing it with a different cast, though of course this is a different Trek cast/story.)

If this new format is available _ON MY TV_ and _WITHOUT COMMERCIALS_, I could possibly see paying it.. even without the "buying" part I mentioned above. (The buying is a best of all worlds..)

On some web site or through some app, especially with commercials (I know that CBS All Access thing now has commercials).. No way.. Unless I can somehow record it to FF through the commercials.

I love star trek, but not paid CBS streaming. I will not be watching it. Too bad netflicks didn't get the show.

CBS/Paramount owns Star Trek. There was no way Netflix would be getting it.

My fear is it will not be available to purchase per-episode via Amazon/iTunes/Play/XBL etc. Making it available for on-demand purchase defeats the entire exclusivity aspect of the SVOD service. And $6/month + ads is more valuable to CBS than individuals paying $3/episode for 13-22 eps, see you next season.

You'll probably be able to buy episodes on-demand and on disc a year after they're aired- much like HBO does with their original content. And exclusivity being the harsh mistress it is, I'll bet these episodes will never been seen on Netflix, Amazon Prime or Hulu. Ever.

I love Trek too. But this service is not for me. The price may be accessible, but there's not enough content to justify the subscription, and ads are a deal-breaker.
