I’m sure most (at least most sci-fi fans) know but to set this up, Star Trek Discovery, the latest series in the Star Trek franchise, premiers Sunday, Sept. 24, on CBS (OTA).
That is the only episode that is currently scheduled to be broadcast, if you want to watch the rest, you have to subscribe to CBS all access at $5.99 / mth (with commercials) or $9.99 / mth for commercial free access.
I am a huge Trekkie but personally, I think this is BS and I will NOT be subscribing. I MIGHT wait for the full season to become available, pay for ONE MONTH and binge it all together, but probably not.
(For those who have never did the free trial, that could be a good time to use it.)
I refuse to even watch the premier as I am sure it will end in a huge cliffhanger, making it difficult to stay away from temptation.
It might not be so bad if CBS was at least part of Hulu, or if CBS all access was cheaper, but I refuse to pay that much for one show. I fear though, they may find success here and this further alienates them from considering a Hulu agreement or worse, they continue to develop more shows for streaming access only.
Other thoughts on this?
Will you go ahead and watch the premier?
Anybody adding the subscription just for that show?
