Star Trek movies have taken another step into the world of online streaming. In February Star Trek Generations was made available on Hulu . And now four more Star Trek movies have been made available via Netflix streaming.
Streaming Star Trek Movies
The DVD rental service has every single Star Trek movie or TV series DVD or Blu-ray that has been released, but just today they added four Star Trek movies to their instant streaming video service:
- Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
- Star Trek III: The Search for Spock
- Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
- Star Trek: First Contact
Movies with ‘Play’ button can be watched via streaming
You have to be a Netflix subscriber to watch. Rate plans with unlimited start at $8.99/month which includes DVD rental (go to Netflix.com for more). Streaming video can be watched on computers or via Netflix ready devices (like Tivo, gaming consoles, and some TV’s and Blu-ray players). And just last week they released a free iPad application.
We are still a ways away from instant access to any Star Trek movie or TV show available on any device anywhere in the world, but it is a step. Hopefully more Trek films (and TV) will be added to Netflix (and other streaming sources) in the future.
