In 2008 CBS began streaming some of its ‘classic’ shows on CBS.com, including the original Star Trek. And today they announced the addition of Star Trek: Enterprise, which is available in the USA to watch right now, in HD.
Watch Enterprise Right Now In HD
Fans in the USA can now watch episode from all four seasons of Star Trek Enterprise at CBS.com and TV.com (which is owned by CBS). CBS also announced that Enterprise will be available for streaming (along with the original Star Trek) at StarTrek.com when the site relaunches later this summer. Episodes are streamed for free, with advertising.
Right now there are 84 (out of 98) episodes available in HD and SD. You can watch in HQ, HD and 1080p. As Star Trek: Enterprise has not been released in Blu-ray, this (and HD Net) are your only choices to see the show in HD. It isn’t known when the rest of the episodes will be added.

There are also 72 episodes of Enterprise available at www.tv.com/star-trek-enterprise/
Following making the original Star Trek available, it makes sense that Enterprise was the second choice for streaming online. The series is the most recent to air and only Trek show that was shot in HD. Although Next Generation, Deep Space Nine and Voyager have not been re-mastered for HD, hopefully they too can also be added to the ad-supported streaming offerings at CBS.com (and the future StarTrek.com). CBS.com streams a number of ‘classic’ shows in SD, including The Twilight Zone, Twin Peaks, and MacGuyver. And hopefully CBS also finds a way to extend this to other countries as well.
