Is it back on? I don't even know where I could watch it nowadays. I cancelled sci-fi channel since the only reasons for keeping it were put behind different streaming walls. I guess Discovery is on CBS all access, no access for me. No loss anyway. I wonder where the Orville went, that was still entertaining. Oh that jumped to Hulu, don't have that either. Whatever. Netflix (still) has the good star treks, I'm sticking with that.

It's on Netflix, at least it is for me here in Australia.

Not here, Enterprise is the latest. We do get Star Trek Beyond, but not the first two of the new movies. I have those on blu-ray anyway. The 'convenience' of streaming is going backwards :/

It's damn weird for Australia to have more access/availability to series than other countries, usually we are way behind the majors markets in this regard.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

I know it's not a popular opinion but I enjoy Discovery for what it is.

It's nowhere near the same league as DS9, Next Gen, or Voyager, but it can be some decent dumb fun. Anyone else just watch the first episode of Season 3?

The Orville is going exclusively to Hulu for season 3. Earlier seasons were simulcast on both FOX and Hulu, and the Hulu viewer numbers were good, so when FOX announced that they wouldn't be airing season 3 due to the fact that it wouldn't be ready in time for the start of FOX's fall season, Hulu got the exclusive rights to it. 

Edit: I see you're in Canada, where Hulu isn't available yet (Disney isn't starting international expansion of Hulu until after they finish the international expansion of Disney+). I'm guessing CityTV will air The Orville in Canada still, not sure.

I wonder how The Orville's viewership numbers compare with Discovery and Picard? Sadly we'll never know, since Netflix (which streams Discovery outside of the US), Amazon Prime (which streams Picard outside of the US), and CBS All-Access (which streams both shows in the US) don't disclose viewership numbers. I know that The Orville averaged over 5m views per episode on Fox in the US between live viewers and DVR viewers, and I remember reading a Seth MacFarlane interview where he said that Hulu viewers roughly doubled the Fox numbers, so that means 10m+ viewers per episode in the US, and The Orville is also aired in Canada, the UK, Australia, and New Zealand, either on tv channels or streaming services, sadly we don't have viewership numbers for those 4 countries.

I suspect that The Orville is winning in viewers, though I can't say that for certain, especially since Discovery and Picard have wider reach due to Netflix and Amazon being available in alot more foreign countries than the 4 foreign countries The Orville is available in currently.

Edit: CBS did air the first episode of Discovery on their tv station in the US to try and get people hooked and watching it on CBS All-Access. That first episode got 9.5m viewers on CBS. The Orville by comparison is estimated to have got 12m viewers on it's first episode airing on Fox.
