This Sunday, CBS will premiere the newest installment of the "Star Trek" franchise. The premiere episode will be broadcast over the air on CBS. All subsequent episodes will only be made available to subscribers of CBS' online streaming service, All Access.

The move makes CBS the first of the major over-the-air networks to exclusively offer a flagship show via online streaming.
