Re: provider for new Trek series as original series download

What business model would you rather have to see the next Trek series?
"Basic cable television with 18 minutes per hour advertisements" is the most likely to synch well with the space opera format - you have a niche audience and subscription revenue to help pay the freight, but not the expectation of high-toned content like on premium cable. However, what you might call "sub-premium cable" - Starz - might go for Star Trek as an attempt to pull even with HBO and Showtime with a known brand name that the bigger premium outlets might disdain as too mainstream.
