As I have stated many times before, I am a huge Star Trek fan. In fact my sideblog has pretty much just turned into a Trekfest. Now I own every episode of ToS on DVD — which spends a lot of time in the DVD player of my home office. But what do I do when I am traveling or sitting in the park and need a Trek fix. Sure I could violate all sorts of copyright laws of which I am unaware and burn them to my HD, but I don’t have the time or patience to do that. Nor do I have the money to throw away renting or buying digital versions of the show.
Well thanks to the smart people at CBS you can now watch all the Trek you want online 24/7. How do they do it? Its a brand new and clever idea. I think they call it ad driven television. Finally.
