High-def Star Trek heading to UK television

A new dawn of sci-fi/horror viewing beckons.

Spock and Kirk compressedSci-fi/horror fans can brace themselves for a slew of great television, as CBS Studios International joins up with Chello Zone to bring viewers something new. With this partnership a host of exciting entertainment channels have been formed and are nearing transmission.

The channel that genre fans are going to be most excited about is CBS Action. Hitting screens on 16 November, and available across Sky, Virgin Media and FreeSat platforms, CBS Action is proud to be screening a digitally re-mastered version of Star Trek: The Original Series. Along with this pristine UK premiere, the channel has also added FX: The Series and The Sentinel to its line-up.

Zone Horror is also seeing something of a revamped slate with Stephen King’s The Stand, The Dead Zone and the Matthew Fox starring series, Haunted, all set to air shortly.
