    Ok. Someone help me out here. CBS is going to have the new Star Trek series,
    but you can't get on 'regular' cable or 'over air antenna'?

    Is this one of those fancy ones like netAmazon or hulu flix where you need a dongle or device in the back of your TV and connect that to stream from Internets.? So you need to buy a PC and a router and run the router to your TV room.

    Sheesh oh Pete.

    I love Star Trek, I hope this one lives up.

    One thing I really like about TNG and DS9 is the look of it. The low budget aspect of it. The way they used classical acting styles. I am not sure about the modern look for a Tv series. But I am hoping it will be good and have longevity.

    I love Star Trek and all the series (some more than others) so I'll watch if possible. It sort of bugs me though when they do the prequel thing but the tech looks so far ahead of the original series. Why not have it in the future after DS9, Vogager? I'm not getting what's so intriguing about the pre Kirk timeframe.

    You need a wireless modem and Roku TV, or any smart TV or any device capable of streaming video.
    Then download CBS all access app and install it.
    Now watch!

    That's because whoever is running CBS is what in known, in the broadcast business, as an "a**hole".
    They will fail. They will lose their jobs. Their successor will try to fix things, and will also fail and lose their jobs. CBS will lose a lot of money.

    The budget of the original was small, they couldn't do it as well as they wanted. Now that they can, should they be stuck with the cheesy bakelite panels?
    I don't think so.

    Cable TV and broadcast TV are dying.
    Streaming programming is next in the evolution of video entertainment.

    Cancel cable TV. (I just did and I saved over $1000 a year by doing this)
    Upgrade internet speed, modem and wireless router speed.
    Amazon Firestick is $40 and plugs into any TV with an HDMI port.
    Hulu, Netflix and Sling TV are $40 for all three. (cancel one if you want to spend less)

    CBS is trying to establish itself as a streaming content provider, there will be many new entrants into this market as cable TV collapses.

    This is true. People are getting tired of paying a tone of money for something that they don't watch most of. I got rid of cable back in 2012 and don't miss it.

    So firestick is an interface to the TV. You run wires to your router and treat the TV like a computer.
    Can I do AOL or other email then?

    The firestick is wireless. If you want to use a wired connection you have to spend a little more on the firetv box. It does not make the tv a computer but you can install apps and there may be an app for that. I use my phone for email. You can install an app on your phone to control the firestick so you have a keyboard to type with.

    I'm looking forward to it.

    If I can lay in bed and watch it on my iPad I'll be very happy. I enjoyed watching Misfits and QuickDraw on my iPad. Both are great creative shows that were never on traditional TV.

    I think that really creative stuff will be streamed to pads and phones as time goes on. Stuff (horrible stuff) like Dancing With The Stars will be viewed on tradiomal broadcast TV.

    For those who enjoy Star Trek.........I live in the Los Angeles area and receive over the air TV reception and there is a station, 13-4, called Heroes & Icons which feature all of the series on weeknights and Sundays. Not sure how that works for those in other areas or on the cable networks. I hope all those who are interested find a way to make it work.

    I was looking foward to it, but I do know now. I really don't watch much tv these days. I do stream, we have roku, fire and Apple TV. I mainly watch movies, but loose interest easily.

    I don't believe the whole "only pay for what you want to watch " is going to be cheaper. And I doubt tv is going to improve overall.

    True but it looks like they are using the aesthetics from the JJ Abrams Star Trek (or Kelvin Timeline) opposed to the TOS era.
