CBS Corp. might be jumping into a new medium by launching an original series on a Netflix-like platform. But that doesn’t mean CBS All Access is turning into Netflix.

And then a full week after that to see the third. And then a full … you get what we mean.
Les Moonves, the chairman of CBS, has confirmed what many television observers knew already — the new Star Trek series will air just one new episode per week on the premium streaming service. It “will be episodic,” Moonves said, according to TrekCore. “It won’t be the Netflix” way.
