CBS’s Star Trek series will premiere on broadcast television and will be exclusive to the network’s subscription streaming service, CBS All Access. For fans living outside of the U.S. and Canada, where CBS does not have any standing, the episodes will be available on Netflix.

The episodes will debut on Netflix around the globe in 188 countries within a day after they become available in the U.S. and Canada -- the show will be available on CraveTV in Canada. This keeps the content efficiently supplied to fans and also curbs the damage posed by spoilers.

"The launch of the new Star Trek will truly be a global television event," said CBS Studios International President and CEO Armando Nuñez in a statement. "This international partnership will provide fans around the world... the opportunity to see every episode virtually at the same time as viewers in the US. Thanks to our world-class partners at Netflix, the new Star Trek will definitely be 'hailing on all frequencies' throughout the planet."

Netflix is a fitting home for the CBS revival, as the online streaming platform has the rights for all Star Trek episodes that have been made, including the original series. All 727 episodes will be available on Netflix by the end of the year.

Star Trek is one of the most iconic shows in television history and we’re thrilled to partner with CBS to bring the beloved series to Trekkies around the world,” said Sean Carey, vice president of global television at Netflix. “The newest chapter of the story promises to continue the rich tradition of adventure and is sure to excite fans everywhere Netflix is available.”
