Why the lack of online episodes?

Nuqneh!


I've always wondered... Why aren't the complete episodes for TNG offered online, like TOS and ENT episodes are? I can never seem to find them on TV, there aren't any at the library... -.-

Netflix has all TNG episodes to watch instantly.  In fact that have all episodes of Star Trek available except for DS9.  Of course you have to membership to watch them but it's well worth it.

Argh... That's right, Netflix charges money to watch. o.o


Any suggestions for a moolah-less student? xD

Netflix is a pretty good site and very accessible. However, I personally dislike the amount we would have to pay just to ensure unlimited viewing of "instant" material. In the long run, to make these even more accessible, to have them available here on startrek.com would be better. As it were, I pay minimum and am limited to 2hours of viewing time.


Point: Let's have all the Star Trek eps available here. This site is free and most fans do visit this site.

They probably just put TOS, TAS, and ENT on here because of data storage issues. Those are the shortest seasons, and the site might take longer to load if the whole entire Star Trek universe was put online. Could get very annoying for people with a slow connection. 


But I don't know. That's just a guess.


And I would LOVE!! to have especially TNG and VOY episodes posted here. It would be great. But Netflix is also great. 


So there's my thoughts.

Janewayjunkie, you have a great point... It could get a bit old for people with slow connection *nods at dial-up*. But still, it is SO HARD for me to find TNG and Voyager anywhere else. Without having to pay for it, of course. -.-


Wait a minute... Can't the videos just be added to YouTube, or some site like that? We could just have links to the episodes on this website, so it wouldn't take up hardly any space at all. Plus, it would be a whole lot better than just previews. o.o

YouTube has most of the episodes up.... I have watched a lot of TNG episodes on YouTube, actually. However, some of them are not good quality. And they come usually in sets of 5 (unless its a two-parter.). So just type in the name of the episode in YouTube to see if they have it.

Torrents aren't a good idea, but they are out there for the taking. Don't do it. But you could...but you shouldn't...you're a pirate if you do, I hope you don't want to be a pirate. Or a space pirate.

Of course not. I'm quite content as Commander.

Oh, and the purple visor is epic. My non-Trekkie friend calls them bear traps.  Maybe your avatar will change her view...
