‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Leads to Record Sign-Ups for CBS All Access
The choice to go digital is already paying off
CBS’ new “Star Trek: Discovery” series is already breaking records, and succeeding in getting more people to sign-up for CBS All Access. The big premiere of “Star Trek: Discovery” on CBS All Access, the CBS Television Network’s digital subscription video on demand and live streaming service, broke a new record for subscriber sign-ups in a single day, beating out the previous record held by the 2017 Grammy Awards.
Episodes one and two of “Star Trek: Discovery” are currently available to stream on CBS All Access, so if you were watching football you can catch-up on the new sci-fi adventure. All new episodes will be available on demand weekly after 8:30 PM, ET on Sundays exclusively for CBS All Access subscribers in the U.S.
In addition to its single day subscriber sign-up record, CBS All Access experienced its best week and month ever for sign-ups due to the launch of “Star Trek: Discovery,” the fall kick-off of the NFL ON CBS on the service’s live local feeds and the season finale of “Big Brother” and the “Big Brother LIVE”.
CBS All Access will continue to engage “Star Trek” fans tonight with the inaugural episode of “After Trek,” the “Star Trek: Discovery” live companion after-show hosted by Matt Mira airing at 11:00 PM, ET/8:00 PM, PT. All subsequent “After Trek” episodes will be available to stream live at 9:30 PM, ET following new episodes of “Star Trek: Discovery” and be available to watch on demand.
In addition to its original series, which also includes season one of the new edition of “The Good Wife,” “The Good Fight,” CBS All Access gives CBS fans the ability to watch more than 9,000 episodes on demand – spanning current shows from primetime, daytime and late night, as well as past seasons of select series and classic TV hits – and stream their local CBS station live. CBS All Access is currently available online at CBS.com, on mobile devices via the CBS App for iOS, Android and Windows 10, and on Roku Players, Apple TV, Chromecast, Android TV, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Fire TV.
