Premiere Episode of ‘Star Trek: Picard’ Is Available to Stream on Pluto TV for a Limited Time
It seems the Viacom and CBS merger is already becoming beneficial for customers. Today, Pluto TV, which was purchased by Viacom pre-merger in January of last year, announced they’re offering a 24-hr marathon of the first episode of “Star Trek: Picard” on their Sci-Fi channel (CH 661). The show, which is a CBS All Access original, premiered on the streaming service last week.

In addition, CBS All Access also announced the first episode will be available to stream on CBS.com for free until Feb. 5.
“Picard” premiered in CBS All Access on Jan. 23. The streamer announced that the premiere episode helped in breaking its record for subscriber sign-ups in a month. Along with the live stream of the Grammys and football, January 2020 beat the previous monthly record of February 2019.
CBS All Access also reported that the premiere of “Picard” broke a new record for total streams and drove the highest volume of subscribers streaming a CBS All Access original series to date. The series is now the streamer’s most-watched premiere ever, beating its predecessor “Star Trek: Discovery.”
New episodes of the series will be available every Thursday exclusively on CBS All Access in the U.S. The popular series has already been renewed for a second season.
