Fans in the UK can now stream Star Trek: Discovery’s fourth season.
The fourth season of Star Trek: Discovery had a bit of a break as Star Trek: Prodigy took its timeslot (so to speak). The pause wasn’t just for viewers around the United States but the UK as well, and it was only recently, yesterday (Feb. 11) that UK viewers got to begin catching up on the last part of Discovery’s 4th season.
The episodes will continue to air on Pluto TV for UK fans, a decision made after international viewers were rightfully upset after it was revealed that the new episodes would not be available in the area as soon as it was in the US. The rollout of Paramount+ internationally has been a mess, and this was its workaround. The show had been penciled in to air on Netflix internationally but the powers to be at ViacomCBS didn’t want to give Netflix any Trek money.
The show is airing on Fridays at 9 PM local time for British viewers via Pluto TV.
Other dates Star Trek fans in the UK will want to keep an eye on.
If you’re in the UK and you’re currently enjoying the first half of Discovery and the first episode of the second half of the season, you may not be thinking much about what’s coming down the road. Well, we’re here to help with that.
The upcoming season of Star Trek: Picard is set to begin airing in the UK on March 4, via the Amazon Prime Video service. This is just another example of the international failings of the Paramount+ service, as fans in the US can watch the series on March 3, the day before the UK release, via Paramount+.
Right now there is no set date for Strange New Worlds, the newest Star Trek series, to start airing in the UK, but the US release date is May 5. It’s likely it’ll air on May 6 in the UK but a streaming service hasn’t been nailed down just yet.
