The folks at Stargate Command have dropped a Valentine’s Day present into the laps of All-Access subscribers. The first three installments of the digital Web series Stargate Origins are now live and ready to watch.
It’s a happy surprise to fans who paid for special, exclusive access to MGM’s digital platform. Origins was announced for a February 15 premiere — and will still be going live tomorrow for a worldwide free preview.
New episodes will be released on Thursdays, though an initial plan to release two every week may not in fact be the studio’s final game plan.
Stargate Origins is a 10-part Web series, with 10-minute episodes telling the story of a young Catherine Langford (Ellie Gall) and her quest to rescue her father from the Nazis.
The All-Access pass is available for a one-time fee of $20 (U.S.), and also offers additional content in the form of view interviews, behind-the-scenes looks at the production of Origins, and the ability to stream every Stargate SG-1, Atlantis, and Universe episode and all three movies.Some All-Access content will expire after May 15, and the subscription portion of the service is only available in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, and New Zealand.
MGM advises GateWorld that viewers gearing up for Thursday’s free preview should also be registered with a free account at Stargate Command in order to be ready to watch.
