New Star Trek series will hit CBS' digital subscription service in 2017

11.02.2015

While a new TREK film is pretty damn awesome in its own right, the Star Trek series has always excelled on the television medium. It seems CBS feels the same way, as it will be bringing a new Trek show to TVs at the start of 2017....with a catch.

The new series' pilot will be featured in a special "preview broadcast" on the CBS Television Network, after which subsequent episodes will only be available in the US on CBS All Access - the network's digital subscription video on demand and live streaming service.

Alex Kurtzman will serve as executive producer for the new Star Trek TV series, that is said to NOT be related to the latest films. Bold move for CBS to debut such a show on a digital-only format, but there ya have it. It's only a matter of time before it hits cable, but how long will fans have to wait? Even more dangerous, is what if they're not willing to give in to the subscription service? I know at least one Trek fan that won't.

The next film, STAR TREK BEYOND, will hit theaters on July 22, 2016.

Would you be willing to subscribe in order to watch new Trek?

I've watched Star Trek shows since I was a kid and loved them. But this isn't going to fly. I've already pay for Netflix, Hulu (because I'm a chucklehead but wow commercial free is a dream) and directv because of premium movies. I already pay enough for tv and am running out of hours in the day to catch shows. I can't add another on yet another platform with commercials and a channel the majority of shows I don't watch, it's not worth it. I'd torrent to send a message but that's becoming

I'd love to watch the show but sorry not paying for the service just for it. This is CBS's attempt to be Netflix but with a whopping one show. Networks already slam us with tons of commercials whether we watch on tv or on demand on their wesbites. I can live with that. But suddenly thats not enough and now ever network wants to start charging us to watch individual shows, yeah no. I pay a satellite bill monthly that has every single channel Directv Offers east and west coast, I have Netflix.

I'm not going to start carrying a subscription to CBS ABC NBC, networks aren't premium channels like HBO. Networks make money via commercials, premium make them via subscriptions because they have no commercials. What do you want to bet that CBS has commercials in this despite the fact you're paying for it? Sorry I'll rip this off a torrent at some point. Not giving into their greed.

Excited for a new Trek series although Alex Kurtzman's involvement has me concerned. Just wish the new series would stream on Netflix where all the previous series stream and is very popular. I'm a big Star Trek fan but I don't know if it's worth paying an extra $6/$7 bucks a month for another streaming service just to watch a new series. We'll see.

The Future...

is about paying for shit lol

But with the days of Netflix, come the days of torrenting everything. So if CBS wants to be on the digital frontier, let them have a great web player and hopefully the tech guys find ways to torrent it for us. It's like the playstation network, why would I pay a service for ONE SHOW? Instead, just torrent it. The companies will make the $ one way or another.

All at least YOU got the headline right. Everyone one else is saying a new Trek T.V. series. Which is not correct.
