Way to doom an already shaky show to failure.

Interested, but the show will likely utterly fail and the second chapter will never see the light of day so I'll pass until (and if) I'm proven wrong. And even then I'll just get it on blu-ray.

"will be available on their streaming service, CBS All Access"

So... that means that, most probably, most of the U.K. won't get to see it.

Illegal downloads then. Shame that the viewing figures will doom it instead of the idiotic reason to etc etc blah blah. I've been waiting for a new Sci-Fi show as I've missed ST/B5/BG. At least we have Dark Matter and The Expanse.

Exclusives for other services, such as HBO's Game Of Thrones and the various Marvel shows on Netflix, are value adds. People go to those services for other things and the exclusives serve as a tipping point for those on the fence. CBS does not appear to understand that. It's like they think all it will take for people to join their service is the exclusive show or two.

It doesn't seem to me that there are a lot of people on the edge wondering if they should subscribe to All-Access or not. There are probably some hard-core trekkers out there who will do it just for this show, but not in the numbers I think they are hoping for. And even if there are, they will probably drop the subscription as soon as the show is over.

I will be surprised if this is successful for their streaming service.

The show will fail because its trying so far to be politically correct.

I think that CBS is trying to use this to push their subscription service, but if it fails, they will air the episodes some other way.

It's a bit of catch 22. They need a big fish to push their subscription service, but they can't just let the fish wither if nobody bites. It's too big a fish.

RARBG FTW, I'm excited for the show but no way I'm paying another streaming service. My $120 DirecTV bill a month is enough.

Would consider for $1 a month. $10 for commercial free? Nope.

Not for just one channel for one series for as long as they are dragging it out. Bring it to Netflix in the US and I'll watch it.

Heck I might sub for a month after it's all aired and binge on the whole season on demand. Why haven't these people learned from the other streaming services yet?

I guess you've never seen a Star Trek series before. It's always been politically progressive.

put it on netflix so i can see if it suketh or not.

if it doth not suketh, then put it on bluray or UHD so I can buy and rip to my media server

i have low hopes however given that DS9 was the start of the decline (not bad mind you), Voyager continued it in fine tradition (thankfully it had 7 of 9, which I could stare at for 42 mins without blinking), and Enterprise well, it is what it is i guess.....

and WTF is going on with the movies since the reboot? i miss the original series and TNG which had some fine elements of Science FICTION; it was thought provoking, ground breaking, and creative. it wasn't like watching a video game.

The Motion Picture is still one of my favorites. Slow, plodding, imaginative, like 2001. They could have expanded on the alien race we never get to see that captured Voyager and reprogrammed it and sent it back out. V'Ger baby.
