Re: If star trek 2 is successful could CBS make more star trek attract

What the deal indicates is that CBS, like other members of big media, sees Netflix distribution as a serious competitor to the still-lucrative syndication market. Some of the shows that Netflix will be streaming, such as Cheers, have been in syndication for decades; their value to the secondary TV market doesn’t compare to a more current show like NCIS: LA, which USA picked up last year for $2.5 million an episode.
