Even before Star Trek: Discovery had a name, it was destined to be not watched my a portion of its typical audience. That's because before we knew anything about the new series, it was going to be put behind the paywall known as CBS All Access. Well, the good news is that you will be able to watch the first season of Star Trek: Discovery without CBS All Access, but the bad news is it will cost you the equivalent of around 7-9 months of CBS All Access.
Discovery is making its way to home video, both on Blu-ray and DVD on November 13. According to their Amazon listings, they would cost $41.99 for the DVD set and $50.99 for the Blu-ray. Along with the 15 episodes of season one with extended and deleted scenes, there will be a few bonuses thrown in, including:
