    They are commonly owned for the most part, so this should have happened much sooner.

    Star Trek fans should be happy, as Paramount (Viacom) controls the movies while CBS controls all TV shows, past and present. The other thing to watch for is whether this enables Paramount to share their content via the Movies Anywhere platform. At present I believe that they and Sony (including the James Bond series) are the only holdouts, meaning that purchased content is only viewable on the app (Vudu, iTunes, etc.) that the movie was registered through.

    I wonder if CBS will be back on Direct TV as they have been missing almost all summer.
