Star Trek Discovery Premiere Brings Record Sign-Ups to CBS All Access

By Brian Gallagher — September 25th, 2017

Last night's 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, eclipsing the previous record held by the 2017 Grammy Awards. The network debuted the Star Trek Discovery opening credit sequence shortly before the premiere, while also revealing the first four episode titles. No specific numbers were released regarding this record, but it could help get this new series off to a great start.

Episodes one and two of Star Trek Discovery are currently available to stream on CBS All Access. 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 Feeds.

CBS All Access continued engaging Star Trek fans with the inaugural episode of After Trek, Star Trek Discovery's live companion after-show hosted by Matt Mira 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. Star Trek Discovery will follow the voyages of Starfleet on their missions to discover new worlds and new life forms, and one Starfleet officer who must learn that to truly understand all things alien, you must first understand yourself. The series will feature a new ship and new characters while embracing the same ideology and hope for the future that inspired a generation of dreamers and doers.

The series premiered on the CBS Television Network Sunday, Sept. 24, 2017 with all subsequent episodes available on CBS All Access, the Network's digital subscription video on demand and live streaming service, and will be distributed concurrently by CBS Studios International on Netflix in 188 countries and in Canada on Bell Media's Space channel and OTT service CraveTV. Star Trek Discovery is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Alex Kurtzman's Secret Hideout, Bryan Fuller's Living Dead Guy Productions and Roddenberry Entertainment. Alex Kurtzman, Bryan Fuller, Heather Kadin, Gretchen J. Berg & Aaron Harberts, Akiva Goldsman, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth serve as executive producers.
