Following the removal of the fourth season of “Star Trek: Discovery” from Netflix, ViacomCBS has announced that the series will begin streaming internationally earlier than expected on the company's free streaming service Pluto TV and on SVOD platform Paramount+, starting November 26.
“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,” the company said in a statement.
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 of the show will be available on November 26, with new episodes being released weekly. The company is 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”.
In Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom, free streaming television service Pluto TV will drop new episodes at 9pm local time on the Pluto TV Sci-Fi channel each Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with a simulcast running on the Star Trek channel in Austria, Switzerland, and Germany.
