“Star Trek: Discovery” S4 Beams Up International Distribution on PlutoTV

“Star Trek: Discovery” fans outside of the US can breathe a sigh of relief. The series has struck a deal to make season 4 available internationally.

Originally, international distribution was being handled by Netflix. However after season 3, ViacomCBS (which owns the rights to Star Trek: Discovery) pulled the show from international broadcast. They didn’t announce a return plan for the series. This understandably united Trek fans across the globe in frustration.

Thankfully now people will still be able to follow the hope that is you… we mean the crew of the Discovery. In countries where Paramount+ is available the series will begin streaming on November 26th. ViacomCBS owns Paramount+. The first two episodes are being made available Friday. New episodes after that will be releasing weekly. 

The series will air for free on the Pluto TV streaming service in Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. PlutoTV is also owned by ViacomCBS… 

New episodes will debut at 9pm local time on the Pluto TV Sci-Fi channel each Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. For those in Austria, Switzerland, and Germany it’ll air on the Star Trek channel.

Keep Going!

Season 4 will also be available for purchase on certain digital platforms in the UK, Germany, France, Russia, South Korea and additional countries. You can find more info here.
