CBS ALL ACCESS SETS ANOTHER RECORD HIGH FOR WEEKLY SUBSCRIBER SIGN-UPS
The First Three Episodes of "Star Trek: Discovery" Push CBS All Access into Warp Speed, Surpassing the Record Set the Previous Week Leading into the Series Premiere
NEW YORK - Oct. 3, 2017 - CBS All Access, the CBS Television Network's digital subscription video on demand and live streaming service, today announced that its latest original series, STAR TREK: DISCOVERY, has pushed the service to a new record high for subscriber sign-ups in a single week. This builds on the momentum and previous record the series set around its Sept. 24 premiere which marked a record-breaking day, week and month for the service.
"Consumer response to the launch of STAR TREK: DISCOVERY has been tremendous," said Marc DeBevoise, President and COO, CBS Interactive. "The build up to the show's premiere led us to a record-setting month, week and ultimately day of sign-ups. The second week of the series has also exceeded our expectations and is a credit to the brilliant and dedicated work of the show's entire creative team and cast. We can't wait for fans to see what comes next for the U.S.S. Discovery and its crew."
Following STAR TREK: DISCOVERY's premiere on Sunday, Sept. 24, CBS All Access' daily growth in subscribers is up more than 200 percent year-over-year. In addition, the launch of STAR TREK: DISCOVERY is the most streamed premiere of a CBS show across digital platforms on record, measured against all CBS programming - both in front of and behind the CBS All Access paywall.
Episodes one, two and three of STAR TREK: DISCOVERY are currently available to stream on CBS All Access. All new episodes will be available on demand weekly after 8:30 PM, ET on Sundays exclusively for CBS All Access subscribers in the U.S.
As previously announced, STAR TREK: DISCOVERY will air in two chapters. The eight-episode-long first chapter of the series will now be increased to nine episodes, with the final episode of chapter one debuting on Sunday, Nov. 12.
