Since most TrekBBS members here are actual fans of the show would it really matter if the next Trek series were on linear TV? Would you be willing to pay for video-on-demand rental via cable, or season-pass subscription via subscription-based Youtube, subscription-based Hulu, Netflix if it were available instead of watching it on cable or broadcast television? Yes obviously CBS Television would have to make a deal with many distribution outlets but it is possible to buck the regular TV trend and locking into a TV channel in the USA. I'm talking about streaming or viewing via download rental, not purchasing to own like Blu-ray/DVD full season or iTunes/Amazon digital file to own (even though iTunes usually has new TV episodes to download to purchase the next day). as I mentioned in the provider for new Trek series as original series download thread the idea that there are enough Trek fans to support a new show via a subscription to a series. In this changing media landscape are you willing to pay to first-time view new episodes? Yes/No, How much for episode rental/streaming? related: Poll:What channel should a new Trek TV series be on?
