While we are all cooped up in our homes during these hectic times, it seems as though we are sitting in front of our TV, and computer screens more than ever before (and for good reason). Throughout the history of this pandemic everyone has been encouraged to stay in doors, and completely limit social interactions if possible.

In the meantime, while you trying to figure out what to watch, Patrick Stewart, and CBS have some news that might help you out.

While promoting the season finale of CBS's Star Trek: Picard, Patrick Stewart announced on Twitter that CBS All Access would be offering a month-free subscription to everyone in the U.S. (this offer is valid until April 23rd). It is a relatively smart move for the platform to offer something like this, especially when everyone is at home.

Additionally, this can act as a way to get potential fans for the series, that may not have seen the show if it wasn't for the offer.

In a heart-warming video, Sir Patrick Stewart talks about the legacy that Star Trek has had, and how it has "made us all more human." The video ends with the advertising of the entire Star Trek Universe available on CBS All Access, which segways into Stewart's caption:

"Our #StarTrekPicard season finale is Thursday, and starting today until 4/23, you can watch for free on @CBSAllAccess in the US with the code: GIFT.

It's felt good to bring Picard back. I can't wait to reunite with our cast and crew for Season 2."

16 Million Subscribers By the End of 2020

The free offer covers both versions of CBS All Access, which includes $5.99 a month for the vanilla streamer with limited commercials, and $9.99 a month for no commercials.

Last month ViaComCBS head, Bob Bakish, said that CBS All Access, and Showtime combined would have a total of 16 Million subscribers by the end of 2020. There was a huge surge of growth at the end of 2019, a 50% gain (11 Million subscribers). The numbers will only continue to rise with our current predicament.

Going back to Star Trek: Picard, the show is supposedly the most-watched original series on the platform to date, although CBS has not released any specific audience data.

The story follows Picard as he slowly begins to venture back to his roots in the stars after he feels unhappy on earth. The show stars Jonathan Frakes, Jeri Ryan, Marina Sirtis, Alison Pill, and Isa Briones alongside Stewart. If all this sounds interesting to you, then it sounds like you have your night (or even month) planned for you.
