The Star Trek Picard TV show will air on Amazon Video outside of the USA and Canada, CBS has recently confirmed.
In the USA, the show will remain on CBS All Access, while in Canada the show will remain on Space. Instead of airing on Netflix in other regions, including Australia, the show will be accessible on Amazon Video. Each episode will be made available within 24 hours from its original air date on CBS All Access.
The announcement was made by CBS on the Star Trek Twitter account, with Jean-Luc Picard himself handling the heavy lifting via video. You can check the tweet out below.
CBS has already confirmed that other Star Trek shows are not impacted by this agreement, meaning Netflix Australia will still house the Star Trek back catalogue — including Star Trek, Star Trek: The Animated Series, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, Star Trek: Enterprise and the ongoing Star Trek: Discovery.
Incoming Transmission from @SirPatStew! The untitled “#StarTrek” Jean-Luc Picard series will stream exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in more than 200 countries+ outside the US & Canada and on CBS All Access in the United States. #primevideo @primevideouk https://t.co/UgxPFcRyaT pic.twitter.com/gzAZBVe0MR
