IParamount/CBS would never do this, though. Paid downloads/DVDs plus DVD rentals can't fund the production of a decent looking series
If you want direct-to-DVD crap, don't expect for Star Trek.
I understand your take on this totally.
Programmed television will be around for a long time. Star Trek
started on it and it has the potential to reach the largest audience for 'free' (17 minutes of sponsored advertising per episode in the USA).
Once any future Trek series it has it's initial TV run syndication will happen and also Blu-ray/1080p HD digital download/DVD will be available for purchase or rental.
