You know, I was pretty ambivalent about this until this teaser, but dang if this didn't elicit some feelings in me.  I really hope they do it justice and that this isn't just some BS corporate cash in.

It's been teased for a while now.

That video is not able to be viewed here in Aus. ??? (It's geolocked)

I assume it is the same as this one

Makes no sense to geoblock a teaser. Though I would say that for geoblocking in mostly all cases.

Is this set in the alternate movie timeline or in the new/old series timeline?

Go and petition your government to have it unblocked in your region!
Im sure its their fault and the whole thing will get sorted.

<Warning, overly nerdy explanation follows>

As far as we can tell, it's set in the old timeline (or the "prime timeline"), but after the Hobus supernova.

The Hobus supernova was the event that kicked off the movie timeline, which caused the Narada and Spock Prime to go back in time and split off the other timeline.

So this takes place in the Prime timeline, but ties into the Abramsverse.
It's always more complicated than that.

We don't get CBS All Access. That's the only reason I can guess that it is Geolocked.

But we do get their shows on other services. I assume this will be on Netflix Australia, the same as Star Trek Discovery

I've never been a huge Star Trek fan. I am enjoying STD (Still have most of S2 to watch). So I will give Picard a watch.

Last I heard, Amazon Prime has the international distribution rights for Picard, and a quick google confirmed: https://intl.startrek.com/news/stewart-picard-amazon-prime

I'm hoping for either a domestic comedy or soap opera set in a family run vinyard with Picard as the patriarch of a sprawling and squabbling family of vintners .

I was listening to a podcast about this show and I can't personally find the quote, but they said the show-runner has stated they don't want this to be another dark and gloomy Trek and are hoping for a more uplifting and optimistic approach, more in line with Gene's original vision.  Gotta say that, that makes me feel better.  Also, there's been talk that people are open to more seasons so my fear that Picard may die at the end of this season seems to be unfounded.  All in all, I think I'm too old and burned for hype, but this looks promising.  Also, it's a nice change of pace to have one creative team in charge from beginning to end, unlike Discovery, which has seen upheaval in both seasons.

As someone who is old enough to remember needing to speak to an operator to connect any call outside my town, of course I enjoy STD   8)

No idea, what you're inferring  ;)
