Star Trek: Discovery free on Pluto TV

Following a social media backlash to rival the destruction of Praxis in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country after Star Trek: Discovery was pulled from Netflix outside the US.

ViacomCBS has issued a statement (via

"To all of the International Star Trek: Discovery fans: we hear you. We love this series too. We love it for the incredible cast, the hardworking crew, the imaginative storytelling, the groundbreaking, diverse characters who bring the show to life and what it represents to so many people around the world. Star Trek has always put its fans first. We want to do the same."

As Paramount+ isn't launching into more regions until 2022, fans (myself included) were left in limbo. The fourth season will now be available to watch free on Pluto TV from Friday.

"Therefore, during this transition, we are doing everything we can to get the new season to you as soon as possible. Where Paramount+ is available in Australia, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Finland, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Norway, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Sweden, Uruguay, and Venezuela, the first two episodes will be available Friday, November 26, with new episodes being released weekly. We are also offering Star Trek fans in these markets a new membership promotion on Paramount+ for 50% off for the first three months with code STARTREK."

This timely decision should assuage Star Trek fans but could have been avoided.

I'd like to take this opportunity to wish all my US-based readers a happy Thanksgiving. Live long and prosper.
