This news about Star Trek is confusing. For a long while there has been no point in having a TV, nor do I have time. But then there was something about Netflix and something "almost cannon but not quite" or something? So I believe there were two new series and one may or may not have been a reboot? Is that right?

Oh, boo.

Not that anybody here but me is likely to care about this, but they just announced how the new series will be distributed all over the world.

In the USA, as announced before, the first episode will be shown on TV while the others will be on CBS' All-Access streaming service.

For the rest of the world, in 188 countries, that'll be on Netflix...

... except in Canada.

"The Bell Media rollout for the new Star Trek series in Canada will mirror the launch in the United States. The first episode will premiere on Canada’s most-watched broadcast network, CTV, on the same night as CBS. All remaining episodes will initially be televised on Bell Media’s cable networks, Space (in English) and Z (in French), and then later exclusively on CraveTV, Bell Media’s streaming video-on-demand service."

I ditched cable some time back, so neither Space or Z are options. The episodes will be available on the online CraveTV platform, but "later".... whenever THAT will be. I don't have CraveTV, I could subscribe to see the series, but the "later" worries me. Basically, I get the worst deal in the WORLD for the new series.

Yes, I'm annoyed.

The weird thing is, as mentioned before, the French dub will be on Z... except that Z ditched its sci-fi programming a few years back, which was one of my reasons for ditching cable in the first place. Boo!

Is there anyway to get the US content? Say if you were to use my profile?

Very likely not, short of using a VPN: the system autodetects your location based on your IP address and configures itself according to that. For example, while I'm subscribed to Netflix in Canada, I've once tried accessing my account while in the US... and happened to have access to the US catalog!

Of course there are other ways to access this, but I was hoping for the simple, straightforward method.
