Star Trek: Picard pilot free on YouTube for a limited time
Posted by: btfc

"CBS has made the entirety of the first episode of its new series Star Trek: Picard freely and publicly available as a YouTube video. This is an opportunity for viewers curious about the show to see if Picard is worth subscribing to the network's streaming service, CBS All Access, to watch the rest of the series.

The episode on YouTube is the same as the pilot episode that premiered on CBS All Access last week. The second episode of Picard began streaming on CBS All Access yesterday, and the network plans to release episodes at a weekly cadence. CBS has not said whether it plans to make other episodes available for free on YouTube in the future, but it seems likely.

The description for the video says the episode will only be available "for a limited time" and that it's presented by Geico. It does not, however, clarify how long "a limited time" is or when the video might become unavailable."

I've long thought that this is what the "pay-walled" streaming services should do. Make the pilot available for free so people can get hooked (or not).

I like it a lot.

And a lot more than baby Yoda.

must suffer with him.

No binging allowed. New episode each week. Only two available right now. I like it, I’ve watched both now.

Actually, I just realized you could wait until the season is over to binge. Duh.

Yup, that's what I've been doing with Discovery and will probably do so again with Picard.
