Yesterday the news about where the Picard show would air in the U.S. and other parts of the world was announced, and today Canadians find out where they can see the new Trek series featuring Sir Patrick Stewart.
“CBS Studios International and Bell Media today announced from the L.A. screenings a licensing agreement for the new untitled Star Trek Jean-Luc Picard television series in Canada. With Bell Media‘s acquisition of the exclusive linear television and subscription video on demand (SVOD) rights in English and French in Canada, each episode will be available simultaneously with its release in the U.S.
“The latest addition to the Star Trek franchise will air day-and-date with the U.S. on Bell Media‘s cable networks, Space (in English) and Z (in French), and the following day will stream exclusively on Crave, Bell Media‘s subscription video-on-demand service.”
“Bell Media has been a terrific home for Star Trek: Discovery, so we’re thrilled to expand our partnership with the next original series in the franchise, and one that it based on a beloved Star Trek character,” said Armando Nuñez, President and Chief Executive Officer, CBS Global Distribution Group. “This new series will deliver CBS‘ world-class production auspices and the considerable talents of Sir Patrick Stewart, further exciting Canadian fans who have always been passionately ‘engaged’ in the world of Star Trek.”
