    How about that...?
    “We could have put Star Trek on Showtime, on the CBS Television Network or Netflix, Amazon, they all wanted it for a lot of money,” Moonves told investors. “We determined that Star Trek would be far better for All Access and will earn us more money.”

    It is bad, but they have the right to make money on their property. But sadly it is the way it is, if you don't want to do that and you are in NA, then you could use a VPN and watch it on Netflix.

    That right to do that is in question to me. I mean, I realize they do have the right, but should that right be granted if it takes advantage of people? Should we allow certain unregulated rights when they take advantage of our fan base?

    Challenge is CBS wants to push their own All Access streaming program. I think though with Netflix, Vudu, Hulu, Amazon Prime, mobile phone data fees, internet access fees and Cable/ satellite most people are monthly payment-ed out. Those that can afford all the above don't have time to actually watch many programmes.

    Basically CBS executives do not really know the Star Trek fan base, and are just shooting themselves in the foot with a Type2Phaser . Tongue Out

    We'll see what happens in six months. Suspicious
