A new licensing agreement covering 188 countries around the world — but excluding the U.S. and Canada — was announced today between CBS Studios International and Netflix that will place CBS’s new “Star Trek” series on Netflix across the globe.
In the U.S., the show will premiere on the CBS broadcast network but subsequent episodes will be accessible via the CBS All Access subscription service, as previously reported.
Episodes of the new show will premiere globally within 24 hours of the U.S. premiere, the companies noted.
“Additionally, all 727 existing episodes of the iconic ‘Star Trek’ television library — including ‘Star Trek: The Original Series,’ ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation,’ ‘“Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,’ ‘Star Trek: Voyager’ and ‘Star Trek: Enterprise’ — will be available on Netflix around the world by the end of 2016,” the announcement notes.
The new “Star Trek” series is scheduled to begin production in Toronto in September, with its premiere set for January 2017.
