Only a few days after it was revealed that Trekkies in the United Kingdom and parts of Europe would be unable to watch season 4 of Star Trek: Discovery once Netflix lost the license, Pluto TV has arrived to save the day – and it’s free. From November 26, 2021, viewers in the UK will be able to catch up with the newest season of Star Trek: Discovery on Pluto TV, a free, no-signup service from ViacomCBS.
Ghostbusters is a Paramount Pictures production that has always been exclusive to Paramount Plus, which is available in the United States, certain Latin American countries, Australia and certain Scandinavian nations.However, everyone else was able to watch seasons 1 through 3 on Netflix.
A new contract prior to the start of season 5 meant Netflix lost rights to the show – and fans were furious. This announcement came about at such an odd time; there was no timetable for when they’d be able to see season 4 at all – which speaks volumes about streaming services in 2021.
However, thanks to Pluto TV’s offering of season 4 of Discovery on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 9 p.m. local time, UK viewers can now watch season 4 of Discovery on Pluto TV without any problems. Stand down, all-clear has been given.
