why not put it on the cbs owned showtime or even showtime and CBS All Access.
That's not how things work up in Canada. The CRTC controls everything. Even the WWE had to make a deal with Rogers to get their network launched up there.
There is no Showtime or CBS All Access for Canadians. Showtime's programming airs under a deal with Bell on The Movie Network (who also runs HBO Canada), while Showtime's back library is on Bell's CraveTV. The rights to CBS's programming is split amongst multiple channels on a show by show basis. (i.e. Daytime alone, Global has Y&R and The Talk, CTV has B&B, City has Let's Make a Deal and The Price is Right, and for late night Global has Colbert and CTV has James Corden) Even CBS All Access's other original The Good Fight is shown by the W Network in Canada, so they wouldn't have the rights to that either.
If CBS wanted to launch CBS All Access in Canada they would be limited to the few shows that no Canadian network picked up, which at this point is just CBS This Morning, Face the Nation and the CBS Evening News. As for streaming, between CTV Go, City's app and Global Go, they can already get next day access to nearly every CBS show.
Spike/Paramount Network couldn't air the new Star Trek Television series because CBS owns the Star Trek TV series rights, Viacom(the owner of Spike) owns the Movie rights.
CBS All Access isn't just Star Trek.. It's also The Good Fight, which has been renewed for a second season. Also you can stream your local CBS affiliate live, which is good because DIRECTV NOW doesn't include CBS. I pay for the commercial free version so i can watch all of CBS's shows without ads(the next day)
I figured out how to get such a feature at no cost. After careful study of my remote, I found that if I pushed the orange button that has an "R" in circle, then next day I can watch CBS shows commercial free, simply by pushing the button marked >> every time one comes on.
Not bashing DISH, but I never understood "commercial free TV" after the broadcast as being anything. Had that in 1978. Betamax.
That's too complicated, especially on a mobile device... I hardly ever watch tv on a TV.

But the market still wants 16-38 of them.
I never did like that name. It sounds like a merger of Nesquik and Napster. So, it makes chocolate milk for you while you download music.
Sorry for me paying CBS for maybe one program is too much. I can record CBS programs when live and skip commercials which is what I do.
Well it’s official, Paramount Network is here. I think it was time to rebrand...
Looks like some good programming coming up. Heather’s in March, Yellowstone, looks alright.
Bellator MMA Live this Saturday might be the real network kick-off.
So long Spike, The National Network, and who can forget TNN, the Nashville Network. Did I miss any?
they also get the local WGN 9 feed complete with Chicago market only sports feeds (no blackouts on some systems) and local news.
If Star Trek Discovery is ever aired on basic cable I would imagine there would be some edits done as the show contains some profanity, graphic images, and even brief nudity. Great show already turning into my favorite Trek series since Deep Space Nine.
Many basic cable networks are now allowing profanity, graphic images, and brief nudity. Just as one example, based on the content of shows they currently have in that time slot, Syfy wouldn't demand any content edits to run "Star Trek: Discovery" at 9:00 Eastern -- it has much less profanity than "The Magicians." (They might need edits for episode length, though.)
I'm not sure if I would consider it a failure of streaming or greed if Discovery was put on a traditional cable channel. Keeping it exclusive to CBS All Access would be my bet. But (as usual) I expect the content owners to make the decision that brings them the most money. Which is their job.
Discovery has done very well for CBS All Access so far. I can see eventually it being run on Paramount Network with some edits done due to content in order to please more traditional Trek fans who probably would object to seeing brief shots Klingon female boobs (yes you do see that on Discovery).
They can put it on showtime if they want to
