CBS All Access, the U.S. home of Star Trek: Discovery, will be arriving in Canada next year in the first half of 2018.
“We will add content from across our corporate portfolio to make our service more and more attractive,” said CBS Corporation‘s Les Moonves.
Star Trek: Discovery will be aired on CTV and then Space and Z, with the ability to stream shows later on CraveTV.
There are also plans to expand CBS All Access to “other international markets by next year.”
Star Trek: Discovery is part of the strategy to grow CBS All Access. “We determined that Star Trek will be far better for All Access and will earn us more money,” said Moonves.
CBS also plans a streaming sports channel and hopes to exceed four million subscribers by the end of the year. “There is a huge opportunity for CBS to go direct-to-consumer on a much bigger scale worldwide,” said Moonves. “We’re more than halfway to our goal for 2020, which is obviously quite conservative now.”
