Where to Stream new Episodes of Star Trek: Prodigy
Star Trek: Prodigy is a partnership between Paramount+ and Nickelodeon, with new episodes landing on Paramount+ before their debut on the Nickelodeon channel a few weeks later. Paramount+ offers a 7-day free trial so that you can try the service with no risk. However, there are two plan options to choose from:
Paramount+ Premium: In addition to original programming like Star Trek: Prodigy, Paramount+ Premium provides live streaming access to your local CBS station so you can broadcast series as they air. This plan also offers on-demand ad-free access to Paramount+ content. After the 7-day free trial, the service price starts at $9.99.
Paramount+ Essential: This plan provides original content, plus ad-supported on-demand episodes of new shows the day after they air on CBS for $4.99 per month after a 7-day free trial. This plan doesn’t include live CBS, so you will have to wait a day for new episodes.

About Star Trek: Prodigy
A motley assortment of teen and tween aliens stumble upon an abandoned Federation starship and form an unexpected crew as they learn to fly it to the Alpha Quadrant. Adventure and chaos ensue, not to mention some gold old-fashioned space chases. The computer-animated series is aimed at a younger audience than the previous series, making it an excellent match for partner network Nickelodeon. The show picks up after the end of Star Trek: Voyager, and in addition to Captain Janeway, includes several nods and references to the franchise’s lengthy and broad history.
