Star Trek Discovery: CBS All Access Premiere Delayed Again
Initially, the show was supposed to kick off in January of 2017. We hope Star Trek: Discovery will live long and prosper eventually, on CBS All Access. The network has not yet revealed a specific premiere date. When we know, you will, too.
What do you think? Will you pay to subscribe to CBS All Access, in order to watch the Star Trek: Discovery TV show? Let us know, below.
I remember when a Network Executive was watching “Star Trek: Enterprise” he angrily ordered the cancellation of that show, and swore that “..No new Star Trek programs will EVER be on broadcast television again.” Although the quote is paraphrased, and I forgot the name of the Exec, the intent was clear. Now, the new entertainment medium exists, CBS – ALL ACCESS ( https://www.cbs.com/all-access ) and the Fans get what they want, new Star Trek, and the Exec can keep his promise, “No new Star Trek on broadcast television again.” I suppose this means everyone can “Have their cake, and eat… Read more »
The executive was right… This is not broadcast television we are talking about.
Not A Chance
I feel like I am being blackmailed to be able to watch the latest Star Trek franchise. I have signed up for CBS all access just to be able to watch Star Trek:Discovery. I am disappointed that I am unable to watch it at this time.
Suzy, me too! It’s the old bait and switch. I enrolled just to be able to see Star Trek. My first free month was great though… I have learned to love the commercial free CBS shows. Also, I love the only other CBS All Access original, The Good Fight.
Still…..I do feel like I was was dupped.
It will be uploaded to the internet and you will be able to download it so I will watch that way.. PAY FOR IT ? HELL NO !!!
CBS All Acess is still wrought with bugs and pretty much all their content can be accessed elsewhere. They need to expand their library and pull out more classic titles that other networks aren’t already streaming, otherwise people will just get this show by other means, of which their are plenty.
No!! I will not pay to subscribe CBS All Access to watch this show or any show. I’m a big fan of Star Trek, but I guess I will have to do without it.
I can’t afford high speed internet let alone the cost of a subscription service on top of that.
I really hope people boycott this. If we give in on this, all the top rated shows will follow suit.
I say that’s unfair for all fans everywhere. Not everyone wants to pay to watch something. Not everyone has internet. What are people supposed to do.
Gardening is a fine idea. Or you could try parkour, hackysack, golf, scrap booking, jigsaw puzzles, astronomy, or run a home business like maybe a gambling ring!
I agree with the spirit of what you wrote, but millions of people pay for original content on Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu as well as premium cable channels such as HBO, Showtime, etc. CBS All Access is following those successful business models: if you want it, you pay for it.
100% correct Batgirl!
I can not wait to watch some new Star Trek. I will not however be paying for cbs all access. I will have to wait for regular TV or Netflix.
