Star Trek Comes to Netflix Streaming

CBS Corporation and Netflix issues a press release announcing a two year agreement to allow for instant streaming of CBS owned television shows and movies. The shows will become available in early April for the usual $7.99 per month plan.

For Star Trek fans, there is a key part that makes this news exciting (especially considering the cost of season sets), and that is "all generations of the definitive sci-fi series, "Star Trek" will be available. This means Star Trek: The Original Series. Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, Star Trek: Enterprise, and even the cartoon series.

Other television shows that will be available include Cheers, Frasier, Medium, Flashpoint, original Hawaii Five-O, Twin Peaks and many more. The idea of being able to create a kind of "best of" and themed play lists from all of Star Trek is very cool; I can't help but feel slightly annoyed considering the massive amount of money I spent on many of the box sets I currently own.
