Paramount+ continues to make massive changes that have upset consumers for months. From canceling popular shows to removing content that fans wanted to see, and even raising the price point of their service. It's become a nightmare situation, which has led to rumors of the service maybe being shut down in some form in the not-too-distant future if it can't start making money.
One of the franchises that has been impacted the most by the loss of revenue at Paramount+ has been Star Trek. Like other brands, they saw several shows canceled due to the poor financial situation; some of which were caused by Star Trek's bloated cost. They also saw some of their properties shipped out to other services; namely Star Trek: Prodigy, which was canceled and later picked up by Netflix.
Then word got out that the service was once again removing many of the popular film properties from the streaming service, removing every film from 1979's Star Trek The Motion Picture all the way to 2002's Star Trek: Nemesis.
The only films still on Paramount+ are the three Kelvin Timeline films; Star Trek 2009, Star Trek: Into Darkness, and Star Trek: Beyond.
So Paramount+ is once again no longer the home for all of Star Trek, and because of that, if you want to watch these iconic films, you'll have to once again subscribe to yet another streaming service, but which one has obtained the films?
Well, you'll have to go out and sign up with Max, formerly HBO MAX, if you want to watch the rest of the Star Trek catalog. That's right, you now have to have not one, but three separate streaming services to watch all things Star Trek.
We were sold a bill of fake goods with this streaming nonsense. It's just as expensive, if not more so than cable, and man, maybe it's time to go back.
