UK fans of Star Trek will soon be able to enjoy "hundreds of hours" of the cult sci-fi TV show thanks to a video-on-demand deal between Virgin media and CBS Paramount, Variety reports.

The shows will be punted to subscribers of "Virgin’s premium XL package via its TV Choice On-Demand service", extending the company's TV rights to air Star Trek material.

It already has "exclusive free and pay TV rights" to the intergalactic franchise, excluding the orginal series, which is beamed out from the Sci Fi Channel in Britain. ®
