If you’ve been waiting for the Netflix Season 4 premiere of Star Trek: Discovery, we need to worry – it won’t. All because of the preparations for the launch of the new platform.
So far, “Star Trek: Discovery” can be watched on Netflix, with new episodes of the series appearing the day after its American premiere. Unfortunately, viewers around the world will miss this opportunity – contrary to appearances, this is not the original Netflix production, but the Paramount + platform series (formerly CBS All Access), which we can watch thanks to the Netflix contract ViacomCBS.
Star Trek: Discovery is leaving Netflix
As I mentioned final date, ViacomCBS finalized a lucrative deal with Netflix, which allowed viewers outside the United States and Canada to watch “Star Trek: Discovery” beginning in 2017. Interestingly, the contract was terminated the day before the fourth season premiere, which was expected by fans about World – We won’t be watching new episodes anymore, as the previous three seasons of Netflix are gone.
reason? In 2022, ViacomCBS will launch in other countries through its broadcast platform – Paramount+. The service will be launched first in Great Britain, Germany, Ireland, Austria and Switzerland. Ultimately, Paramount+ is available in over 45 countries.
Thanks to Netfliks, viewers from more than 190 countries around the world have access to the series. Now they will lose it for several months. Kelly Day, Head of Broadcasting at ViacomCBS Networks International, explained the decision in an official statement:
– As we rapidly expand our streaming global presence, we are bringing more of our top titles to ViacomCBS for Paramount + Markets around the world. We have a strong global and local flow of content that keeps us successful in our region, and bringing back beloved series like Star Trek: Discovery for Paramount+ is another step forward as we bring more titles worth watching to fans around the world.
What does ViacomCBS’s contract with Netfliks mean for Polish viewers? In 2022, the SkyShowtime platform will be launched in Poland. It will include, among other things, Sky, Peacock and Paramount+ productions, which likely means we’ll be able to watch new episodes of “Star Trek: Discovery” there. Unfortunately, there is no specific Polish release date for the platform at the moment.
Star Trek: Discovery is no longer available in Poland
