Netflix Star Trek Streaming

Excited about the wonderful universe of Star Trek episodes streaming into your life? Took the plunge and signed up for Netflix? Its been a couple of months now since a deal was struck between CBS and Netflix making Netflix the first online service to deliver Star Trek without commercials.


I wonder whatever happened to the needs of the many and all that jazz? Oh well. Hopeful, European trekkers probably wouldn't have minded some 'advertisements.' The current CBS/Netflix deal is exclusive to the USA only which means lots of saddened trekkies are missing out on the fun.

The good news is Netflix have CBS trek licencing for only two years with options for another 2 so who knows? Fans can watch Star Trek episodes on line with their Netflix ready TV, XBox360, 3d, PS3, Wii,  mobile phones or tablets which is neat.



Netflix have confirmed they will be streaming every episode of every season for all five live-action Star Trek series: the original Star Trek, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, and Star Trek: Enterprise. Curiously the only show not included in the CBS deal is the 70's Star Trek The Animated Series. I guess some things weren't meant to be for now...

UPDATE:  Netflix just got the green light to air ST TAS! GAME ON Trekinators!

Star Trek TNG will be the first to hit Netflix with direct digital streaming taking the web by storm leaving ITunes in the dust. Its awesome seeing Star Trek TNG as a popular trek series yet again!!! 25 years after its original debut aired in 1987!!! LOL.



                                                        MAKE IT SO!

Which Star Trek show do you want to see in direct digital streaming? signed for Netflix? Do European trekkies or Canadian trekinators have just cause for concern?

Make you voice count, Make your Favorite Star Trek Show a digital/blu ray reality! Kapla!

Trekfix and Prosper, trekinators!

I love that in the States they have the animated series on the streaming. That is good for a cartoon show.

I love Netflix for that reason. I can catch up on all the episodes of Star Trek I've never seen and I can finally see Next Generation. :) I love, love, love the instant streaming. It feeds my nerd side. :)

I like that Star Trek TAS strives to remain faithful to the original series show. Its got cool aliens, ships and planets but most of all... the original cast voice overs.

I can tell you've been assimilated Kirsta? Netflix will play havoc with your beauty sleep.

Great to have easy access for Trek!

Spacerguy said...

Yeah, Trek rules the airwaves again! Live long enough and your dreams will become reality. I once wrote: If I could time travel to 1994, I wouldn't change a single thing. Star Trek The Original Series, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine and later Voyager in '95 were all on tv together and it'll never happen again. I sure hadn't counted on Netflix! Tony.

But I've already watched all of the series twice through NetFlix!

Spacerguy said...

Awwww Poor Alex! LOL. Get yourself a 3D laptop with blu ray star trek dvds, now thats what I call heaven dude!

I have the ST animated series in my queue. I hope I can get to it before they take it off, but I'm making my way through "Firefly," "Alphas," and "Doctor Who." Too many choices, too little time.

Spacerguy said...

I see you've got some tough command decisions to make Nigel. Ask yourself what would Mal or Dr Who do, LOL. Still isn't it great CBS has recently allowed Netflix to add Star Trek The Animated Series for fan viewing?

Great news Spacerguy. I've been watching TAS on Netflix for a while, but now I can finally catch up on DS9 and Enterprise.

Spacerguy said...

Cool. I'm thrilled you're enjoying Star Trek so much! Maurice. DS9 is the best on that score. I must get out TAS and have some fun with it soon.
