    I searched on these forums and on the internet and couldn't find any information.

    Does anyone know if the Star Trek television shows have left Amazon Prime (US) for good?

    I didn't even know they were on Amazon Prime.

    In the US, Star Trek is on Netflix.

    At least for now.

    Yep. Looks like they've been pulled, at least TOS.

    Eventually, I imagine the only place to find these shows will be on All-Access.

    They are still on Hulu and Netflix though. I just watched DS9's "Blood Oath" again this morning on Netflix.

    They're still on my shelf. No need for streaming. :techman:

    Are you sure? I've been watching DS9 on Amazon all month.

    I'm guessing it's a glitch. Enterprise and Voyager are back. Deep Space Nine and The Next Generation are still gone.

    They all seem to be back, except Deep Space Nine seasons three thru seven. Which they are charging $1.99 an episode.

    Likely some kind of glitch.

    I have them on DVD and I have CBSAA, so I'm covered. But it seems like the best quality viewing experience is Amazon, so I've been using that.

    I suppose this is bound to happen at some point!

    A friend of mine said the same happened to her with Dr Who - the episode she wanted to watch was suddenly gone - so I would indeed assume this is some kind of glitch.

    I was checking last night and they were all still there. I'm actually amazed they are on 3 services that I know of (They might be on Hulu as well, I don't know). I would have thought CBS would have taken it all already.

    That’s so weird.

    My son and I have been watching Numb3rs on Amazon Prime. Last night, all of a sudden, we have to pay for episodes. We’re in the middle of Season 5, and up until yesterday it was included in Prime.

    Maybe there is something weird going on?

    HBO Max and the Peacock might be pulling it's stuff but I am really getting confused about who owns what property these days with so many streaming services.

    Likely CBS still has contracts to honor with content providers. Though I wouldn't think it smart to pull everything to All-Access. Those shows on other outlets end up working as promotion for newer material.

    I thought Peacock wasn't coming out until April? :confused:

    I'm not sure but they might be taking stuff off early and maybe putting it on the NBC site until then.

    All these "Legacy deals" are causing issues with Disney, so I imagine that when a deal expires on a particular show or movie, rather than negotiate a truncated deal, they just let it run out and plan on bringing the program back at launch.

    Temporary server glitches? It sounds like the content is still there.

    Theoretical: What happens if a person buys a "digital product" and it gets yanked? If the person can't have the product then it should be refunded? It's not sold as a rental, which is clearly a very different paradigm.
