Voyager is still on when I just checked. When I was watching something else I'd downloaded earlier Netflix went a bit nuts and told me downloads were no longer available and I needed to do some updates or something, but I just closed and opened it again and it was fine. Maybe it's just slightly on the fritz like half the rest of the internet.

knew I should've put a question mark at the end of the title.

that's good to know though! i've been trying to figure out since yesterday why it's gone. i guess it thinks i'm using a VPN or am in a different region for some reason, as Netflix is working fine - just Star Trek is gone.

ah, if I go into "Recent device streaming activity" on Netflix it appears some cheeky cunt called Peter has been using my account. anyone else had their Netflix account piggybacked?

The minute Shat goes into space it goes off - coincidence? I think not, sheeple!

Either that or there wasn't enough room on The Nets Flicks for Seinfeld so they ditched Trek. I'm well tech-savvy, me!

Yeah I've updated OP, it's just on my end. Still, hopefully the thread title gives people a scare!

From reddit I've heard Star trek has stopped being on us netflix, in case you're using a proxy or something.

Presumably the whole lot has been shipped over to CBS All Access.

It’s called Paramount+ now, but yes that would explain it.

I wonder if P+ plans to go international? Being a US TV network in origin, they’re very parochial and don’t even seem to care about the international market for their product - they even region-lock their trailers even though, say, new Star Trek will be on Netflix or Prime almost instantaneously.

Yeah it’s launching here at some stage. As part of Sky or Amazon I can’t quite remember.

Region locking trailers has got to be the most pointless, unnecessary and counterproductive thing possible. I wonder what the justification is. Physically preventing people from seeing an advert. Mind boggling.

Presumably because they think it might encourage people to download a pirated copy of the actual show. Like anyone capable of finding and downloading a pirated copy isn't capable of typing "<Show name> trailer" into YouTube, which has never failed to find me a non-region-locked copy of a region-locked trailer.

I usually watch the trailers on Twitter as they don't last long on YT sometimes. There's really no need to region lock them at all.

It probably costs them a little bit of money to release trailers in different regions because they have to check it complies legally, and check for any cultural things - like the support for NI terrorism in the TNG episode. Probably the bigger thing it's something they want to charge netflix for, probably as part of some cross promotional deal type thing, and netflix have said no.

That's the best I can do - it still seems pretty stupid though.
