Star Trek PR:
CBS Television Studios announced today it will launch a totally
new Star Trek television series in January 2017. The new series
will blast off with a special preview broadcast on the CBS
Television Network. The premiere episode and all subsequent
first-run episodes will then be available exclusively in the
United States on CBS All Access, the Network’s digital
subscription video on demand and live streaming service.
Are they putting it on CBS All Access because it isn’t good enough to be a regular CBS show? I find that hard to believe, given how much complete garbage CBS airs. So I guess they’re putting it on CBS All Access because they think it’s appealing enough to get people to actually sign up for CBS All Access.
Will it have commercials? I’d find that unconscionable.
Update: Sounds like not only does CBS All Access have commercials — it has tons of them, and the streaming quality is crap. Terrible news for Star Trek fans if this is the only legit way to watch.
