Make Star Trek: Discovery available on Netflix for US and Canada!

This petition had 3,001 supporters

Star Trek: Discovery, the first Star Trek series in over a decade, will not be available for most Americans and Canadians to watch (As things are now).

The plan CBS has is to make people sign up for their CBS All Access online service, forcing potential watchers to pay $6 a month, or $72 a year to watch Star Trek: Discovery. This is an extremely poor choice for several reasons. Here are two:

1. Star Trek fans who can't afford to pay $72 a year for Discovery won't be able to watch the new show.

2. If it is available only on All Access, Star Trek Discovery will have far fewer watchers. Only people who are already fans of Star Trek will be willing to cough up $6 a month to watch Discovery. The number of people who will watch Discovery will not increase, in fact some may sign up for a month of All Access, then decide that $6 isn't worth it. 

3. There are far more people who watch Netflix than CBS All Access. All Access missed the boat with online streaming. With almost the same price as Netflix and a fraction of the selection, CBS All Access is basically doomed to fail.



Making Star Trek: Discovery available in the US and Canada only on CBS All Access is a very poor choice. Nobody will watch it, but putting it on Netflix will gain viewers and make the show available to Trek fans who can't pay for All Access.
