In case you were wondering I am a huge SciFi and Star Trek nerd! This article ran across my feed today and I was like “OMG”! Unfortunately we have to wait till 2017 for this, but I can do it, I think.
There is one thing that annoys me about this announcement though. This new show will only be available on the CBS All Access subscription. This I think will prevent a HUGE section of the population from watching this show. Sure if you are a cord cutter, you may have a CBS All Access subscription because you want to watch CBS shows. However if you are a cable customer you already get CBS, so why would you pay a second fee to watch CBS shows you already can watch? That means you would have to pay $5.99 a month JUST to watch Star Trek. I am not OK with that.
However I am a cable cutter, so maybe this will give me the reason to get CBS All Access…..
