CBS is planning on bringing back Star Trek, with a new series to be launched in January of 2017. Alex Kurtzman, who wrote that two latest Star Trek movies, will produce the show. It will air on CBS All Access, the network’s digital subscription service.
The 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.
The cross-platform streaming service, which hosts thousands of episodes from CBS' roster (both past and present) is available for $5.99 per month. Included in the fee is the ability to stream the local network live. All previous Star Trek series are currently available on CBS All Access. CBS Studios International will distribute the series for TV and multiple platforms around the world.
Fair enough. By 2017, I might be able to bother learning how to set up a digital streaming service for TV. Or they might just make it easy by then. -via Metafilter
