Star Trek fans should be keeping their eye on Pluto TV in 2023.
Somehow, ViacomCBS has both made Star Trek more accessible than ever, and the least accessible it’s ever been. While the Trek series can be found in multiple locations, the films, are not so much. If you go to Paramount+, the home of all Star Trek, you will not find all of the films. But you will find all of the shows. This has upset fans.
So it’s kind of surprising that Star Trek has expanded its reach beyond just Paramount+ as a hub for all of its shows. Fans may know that the television station, Heroes and Icons, airs all five of the classic Star Trek shows starting at 8 PM ET, running Sunday through Friday.
Fans could also find the Original Series, the Next Generation, and Deep Space Nine on the free streaming service Pluto TV. Now, fans can find new offerings on the service, with Voyager being added to the lineup as well.
Star Trek: Voyager is even more accessible thanks to Pluto TV
If you are a fan of Pluto TV as I am, you know you can watch shows streaming live like a conventional television provider, or you can use their on-demand section to watch select series. While Deep Space Nine isn’t provided on the service, the Original Series, The Next Generation, and Voyager are all part of their on-demand offerings. Making Paramount+ unnecessary if you want to catch up on the captains Picard and Janeway.
All but two of the films aren’t on the on-demand section either, with just Star Trek 2009 and Star Trek: Into Darkness being offered in any on-demand capacity. That means if you want to watch the first 10 Star Trek films prior to 2009 and the third Kelvin Timeline film, Beyond, you’re going to have to go…beyond…the offerings of Paramount.
