Default Band of Brothers confirmed for Blu-ray

What many have been waiting for, HBO have confirmed that Band of Brothers will be coming to Blu-ray sometime this year.

There's no street date yet, but HBO Home Video is reportedly planning to bring the Emmy-winning mini-series 'Band of Brothers' to Blu-ray sometime this year.

While reporting on the upcoming standard DVD release of the recent 'John Adam's mini-series, Home Media Magazine spoke with a network rep who confirmed that plans for the Tom Hanks-produced 'Brothers' are underway.


Sofia Chang, Senior VP of Marketing for HBO, revealed that "...a Blu-ray version of 'Band of Brothers' is in the works for later this year."

Although HBO has not issued a release date window or any preliminary tech specs (and as always company plans can change), the news bodes well for a Blu-ray 'Band of Brothers,' a title which remains one of the oft-requested titles in HBO's library.

Needless to say, we'll keep you posted on 'Band of Brothers' and all future HBO Blu-ray titles as soon as details come to us.

We've also added 'Band of Brothers' to the "Release Dates Pending" section of our Blu-ray Release Schedule. Watch this space!
So does anyone wanna sell me their HD DVD version?

Awesome news. I haven't seen any episodes yet but I've only heard good things about the series. It's always a good thing to watch something in HD the first time you see it.

I have an expensive DVD set I haven't watched yet. Before that I recorded the entire series to D-VHS and never watched that. I know it is an excellent series, but for some reason I have not yet made the commitment to sit down and watch it. Rather than take a huge hit on the DVD set, I am going to watch it and not buy the Blu-ray set.

Why didn't I ever hear about this being released and why did HBO only release it on HD DVD? I probably would've bought it but now I'm sorta glad I didn't...

It's a really great series. I have actually sit through it 3 times. Great show to watch on a rainy weekend.

I don't remember what the MSRP was for the DVD set, but at the very least HBO will price it similar to Sopranos Blu-ray, which sells on Amazon for $91. If they add some things to the release over what the current DVD edition has, then expect it to be more. In any case, this is better to own than any 5 Blu-ray movies, so I'd just buy it, whatever the price, and buy 5 less Blu-rays to compensate.

I am going to stick with the SD steel box version I have of this. I like the show a lot but not enough to spend that kind of $ on it to get HD.. yup, SD UC looks good enough to me on this one too

Does that mean it's more of a drama? Not too much action?

I'm sure there is. I was just having fun with Stew. He doesn't think dramas need to be seen in HD.
