Interesting development. The CraveTV and Space deal for Star Trek really dilutes the value of CBS All Access though and it's not like I think CBS All Access is all that good a deal to begin with. What I'd really like to see is something like Hulu in Canada.

Really, Mike? Really?!? If I was CBS CEO Leslie Moonves I'd be grinning ear to ear reading that, thinking on time when next contract comes to signing. You'd be paying hand over fist tenfold or eat your words.

It's more likely that some Bell CEO will order CraveTV and Space to dump STD as soon as they find a way to make doing so show up in their bonus packages. They will always find ways ways to make themselves, and their investors, live long a prosper. Customers are just space garbage to them.

Next contract for Star Trek could be non-exclusive, meaning it could air on both Bell Platforms and CBS All Access in Canada at the same time.

Bell & co. do not thrive well in non-exclusivity. They can't compete. Or, at least, they haven't shown so far they can.

Sad part about Hulu is with Bell/Corus/Shaw/Rogers/whomever has distribution rights for prime time shows at this moment, there wouldn't be much I think.

Home Theatre: Yamaha HTR-6190, Klipsch Speakers, SANYO PLV-Z4, TOSHIBA HDDVD, LG BD555C, Cerwin Vega HTS12 Sub, VIP2300, XBox 360, HTPC.

Pay the bucks and it might show up.....do you think Bell/Rogers Media loves competition? As soon as the CRTC gives the go-ahead the blocking will begin on all internet sources not approved by the M.B.C (Monopoly of Canadian Broadcasters)

Which, as we all know, will include Netflix.

The Canadian ISP's tried to block it before. You know they'll try again.

CBS is covering all bases - if the traditional Canadian distribution model dies, they have already a foothold. If traditional Canadian distribution continues, then they still make money off of it.

Every year, CBS and Canadian network buyers spend a lot of money on up-fronts, negotiations, travel, etc etc that if all the extra expenses were cut out, CBS could potentially make more money delivering their product directly to Canadians without the Canadian network middle men and their mark-ups to make their piece of the profit. CBC Doc Zone has a good documentary on how shows are bought for the Canadian market (and how Canadian shows are sold to other markets).

CBS could make more money, and the consumer could pay less for the same product without the Canadian networks involved. I think we are going to see this direct from the content producer to consumer model more in the coming years. Not only for TV/Movie content, but also many products we buy with various levels of middle men and distribution that just add costs for the end consumer and lower profits for the producer.

I doubt we will see a live feed on CBS All Access in the near future.

It won't happen in the US due to FCC rules. In Canada, it might force a review of whether CBS All Access is a broadcaster under CRTC guidelines and make it subject to government regulation. There is a reason CBS All Access delays all new programing one week. It's to deflect criticism from existing broadcasters that could subject it to classification as a broadcaster. Lawsuits from broadcasters that have purchased broadcasting rights is another factor. I suspect that we will see increasing amounts of exclusive CBS All Access programming, similar to Star Trek: Discovery, in coming years as CBS attempts to compete with Netflix.
