This seems to be the latest news on the premiere - CBS CEO Les Moonves said that Star Trek: Discovery will launch “sometime late summer, early fall...” Source

And this is starting to be worrying. Either they are going to great lengths to get it "right" or they are having serious problems with one or more of the cast, scripts, finances or basic series concept. Any guesses on which?

“It’s important to get it right, and Star Trek is the family jewels,” Moonves says. “We’re not going to rush it in. There’s a lot of post production. But I’m very confident based on what I’ve seen so far.”

STAR TREK: DISCOVERY will premiere in the U.S. on CBS All Access this fall, following a broadcast premiere on the CBS Television Network. Additionally, the series will feature 15 episodes, up from the previously announced 13, and include a companion after-show, “Talking Trek,” presented on CBS All Access. The series will be distributed concurrently by CBS Studios International in Canada on Bell Media’s Space channel and OTT service CraveTV.

Does anyone know if there are any Space options for for cutters? I suspect the answer is "no".

Two possibilities:
1) watch STAR TREK: DISCOVERY on CraveTV (see post 42) but it probably won't be on there until after the first run on SPACE.
2) Bell's Alt TV (see thread). However you would have to switch to Bell's Fibe internet which is currently $64.95 for 25 or 50 Mbps for unlimited usage. Alt TV would cost $14.95/month for "skinny basic" + $7 for SPACE.

Yeah, I read about Alt. That's $15 more for the same internet resold by Virgin. And last time with Bell their router was rally bad. I do plan on getting Crave. Or really alternating between Crave and Netflix.

Actually $64.95 is only a promotional offer for new customers, after one year it is $89.95 so it will be $40 more than Virgin.

STAR TREK: DISCOVERY Lands in Canada September 24 - Bell Media

Scheduling for one of television’s most anticipated debuts of the year was revealed today as Space confirmed that STAR TREK: DISCOVERY makes its exclusive Canadian broadcast premiere simultaneously on CTV and Space, Sunday, September 24 at 8:30 p.m. ET / 7:30 p.m. CT. Episode 2 follows immediately the same evening only on Space. The 15-episode season will roll out in two chapters, with the first eight episodes running from Sunday, Sept. 24 through Sunday, Nov. 5. The second chapter resumes in January 2018. Every episode will also be available to Space subscribers on the newly launched Space GO app, in addition to being available on Space.ca and participating On Demand channels.

STAR TREK: DISCOVERY will also stream exclusively in Canada on CraveTV, with full scheduling details to be released in the coming weeks.

The series features a new ship, new characters and new missions, while embracing the same ideology and hope for the future that inspired a generation of dreamers and doers.

Here's the press release for CBS All Access which will stream the show in the U.S. on the same schedule as SPACE airs it in Canada.

EDIT: CBS will also air the first episode as a teaser at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT Sunday, Sept. 24. That start time may be delayed if the NFL doubleheader runs over time. Hopefully, CTV will still start the episode on time and not delay their schedule for the simsub.

Looking forward to this.

Have they said what the quality of the video will be? I imagine it's "HD" for SPACE (720P) but would the streaming options kick that up to 4K?

To start with, is the show even recorded in 4K or will they take 1080p upscaled to 4k? I'd be surprised to see a 4K distribution but then again, things are moving pretty fast in the world of TV!

Keep in mind that CBS is producing this for their All Access streaming service, which doesn't have 4K capability. Rumour is that they are shooting with 3.2K cameras which could be up-scaled to 4K for a future Blu-ray release. If they do distribute this in 4K, SPACE could make it available in 4K On Demand on the Fibe TV platform like they do for The Expanse.

I expect it will be distributed in HD, which will be 1080i or 720p depending on your TV provider.

I checked the official Star Trek site, which CBS owns, and there was no mention of 4K. However they had a different version of the previous press release broken out by country.

I have to admit that (apart from the most recent movies) I had lost interest in the Star Trek franchise. However, ST Discovery really steps up to the plate with vastly improved writing and special effects. I like Star Trek again. Unfortunately, ST Discovery makes the original look even more dated than it already did.
