CBS All access?  Does that mean its only going to be PPV?  Big fan of franchise since the '60's, but am for damn sure not going to pay $ to just watch one series.
I display the Confederate Battle Flag in honor of my great great great grandfathers who spilled blood at Wilson's Creek and Shiloh.  5 others served in the WBTS with honor too.

There are ways around it. If you wait until the end of the season then they you can watch it during the free week ;) or if you know someone that has CBS All-Access.

According to Wikipedia, the episodes will be available on Netflix 24 hours after they show on CBS All Access.

Yes it will be on Netflix but only for international audiences. But there is a way.. Not saying but there is a way.

Well... if we cut the cable, we may subscribe to CBS All Access to get the full range of CBS shows (wife and I watch a lot of them, and they aren't available for streaming while current anywhere else) but we won't be getting the service just to watch ST:D.  If it's not available anywhere in the U.S. except All Access, then we either won't see it, or we'll wait until it is available somewhere else.  :shrug:

Same here, only the most die hard Trekees would spend that.  If I see it in 2020 on Netflix or Amazon Prime, I am not an iota sadder.

We dropped cable 4 years ago and got Netflix. Added Prime first of last year. I don't miss cable at all. We have 13 OTA channels.

I've noticed that a lot of tv shows, even the older ones, seem like crap to me now when I watch one for a few minutes.

I am. I did spend $15.00 for Showtime for SG1.

I got a Netflix account last year when they started showing the series based on the Marvel Cinematic Universe (Daredevil being the first). However, ST:D is below my threshold of "must have".

Considering that CBS All-Access is only $5.95 per month. It is a bargain.

I'm currently paying close to $25/month for three different streaming services. If I keep adding more services, eventually I'll pay just as much for them as we currently do for cable...

What is great, is that we can cancel (unlike cable/satellite service where you literally sell your soul ) anytime.  We only pay for Sling (well we have Hulu but we got a Hulu Card).  Once Star Trek is over we will cancel CBS All-Access.

The freedom of choice is well worth the cost for me.

Nothing should make a man happier than knowing his government couldn't care less about him.
I'd rather lose defending the constitution than win at its expense.

I'm currently rereading Rendezvous with Rama and desperately hoping the can make a decent movie out of it.
