How much shelf space would you need if you wanted to watch every episode of the original Star Trek TV show, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager and Enterprise? Let’s see: 3 seasons, 8 seasons, 7 seasons, 7 seasons and 4 seasons. The answer is no shelf space if you can wait for every Star Trek TV episode (except for the animated series) to start appearing on Netflix in July.
If you have an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Windows Phone smartphone and can afford Netflix’s monthly $7.99 streaming video subscription fee, you can watch a Star Trek TV episode anytime and anywhere you want as long as you have a 3G, 4G, or WiFi signal to latch on to. Of course, if you are on a metered 3G or 4G connection, you might want to keep an eye on how much data you burn up watching streaming video.
Note that you have to wait until October 1 to watch Deep Space 9 on Netflix.
Live long and prosper.
