Season four of “Star Trek: Discovery” was supposed to be available on Netflix a day after its US debut on Paramount+, but it will not happen again. Now, anyone outside the US and Canada will have to wait to see the new episodes. According to time limit , ViacomCBS terminated its agreement with Netflix that was in effect since the series debuted in 2017.
The publication reports that the money Netflix has earmarked for overseas rights for the program pays for most of Discovery’s budget. But it is now up to ViacomCBS, which plans to make the series available to international fans again in 2022.
The official report of the program via Twitter states that the fourth season of “Star Trek: Discovery” hasn’t debuted on Paramount+ in the United States yet. However, in the meantime, it will hit Canada’s CTV Sci-Fi Channel on the same day and will be available for streaming in the country the next day.
The UK, Germany, Ireland, Austria and Switzerland will be among the first regions to gain access to the streaming service next year. By the end of 2022, the title will be available in 45 countries, but it’s still only a small part near the 190 regions where Netflix is available.
“As we rapidly expand our global streaming footprint, we are bringing our top titles at ViacomCBS to Paramount+ markets around the world. We have a strong influx of global and local content that allows us to drive success in our regions. And bringing back beloved series like Star Trek: Discovery for Paramount+ is another step forward as we bring fans more must-see shows around the world.” , he said. Kelly Day, head of streaming for ViacomCBS Networks International, told Deadline.
