Fans used to getting a season’s worth of shows all at once on various streaming platforms will not be happy with how CBS will be releasing episodes of the new Star Trek televised series, due to air next January.
According to CBS President Les Moonves, the series will be “episodic, week by week.”
This means no binge-watching, but having to come back every week, as is the way on broadcast TV.
Using this now old-fashioned tactic, the show might as well be on broadcast television, but it’s obvious that CBS wants viewers to stay (and to pay for more than one month of access), and not just dip into CBS All Access for a quick season binge session.
