HBO, SHO, MAX, and TMC didn't want to pay to show Abram's reboot so it's been downgraded to the commercial interruptions of basic cable.
Star Trek XI was an EPIX exclusive for the past two years--the other premium cable networks couldn't touch it during that time.
FX secured the rights to show it next not too long after it was released in theaters.
HBO and MAX will eventually get around to showing it. SHO and TMC may be the last ones to ever show it.
