This past March we reported that Arrow - The Complete 1st Season is coming to DVD and Blu-ray Disc this September. At the time, the early info we had from Warner's public website showed a September 10th release date, but now the studio's finalized this title with a street date one week later, on September 17th.
Pricing is confirmed at $59.98 SRP for the 5-disc DVD version, and $69.97 SRP for the Blu-ray version. Package art, shown below, is the same as what we've previously brought you, except that the Blu-ray version has been updated across the top to show that it's actually a 9-disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo set. That one also includes an UltraViolet digital version of all 23 episodes. Here's the list of extras that Warner Home Video provided:
