Battlestar Galactica - Separate Blu-ray Disc Release for Season 1 Announced by Universal


Retailers told to expect this high-def release in early January

Following up on this past July's Blu-ray launch of Battlestar Galactica (with Season 4.5 and The Complete Series in high-def format), Universal Studios is preparing to give us more! On January 5th Universal is taking us back to the beginning, and bringing out an individual high-def release of Battlestar Galactica - Season 1 on Blu-ray Disc format.

This isn't the first time we've seen Season 1 on high-def, of course. Besides being included as part of The Complete Series on Blu-ray, these episodes were also released in 2007 on the now-defunct HD-DVD format. The timing of this new release is likely to be aimed to take advantage of BSG fans who may have gotten a Blu-ray Disc player as a gift during the holiday season, especially since prices on the hardware are expected to be lower than ever. It's also timed to coincide with the late-January debut of the spin-off show, Caprica on the Syfy Channel. This will be the fourth Blu-ray format release for this program, following The Complete Series, Season 4.5 and The Plan (which ships in three weeks).

Battlestar Galactica - Season 1 for Blu-ray Disc comes on 4 BD's, running 756 minutes. Video is in 1080p high-def widescreen, and sound comes in with English 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio. Subtitles are in English, French and Spanish. Cost is $89.98 SRP. We don't have package art yet, but here's the long list of bonus material that will be included:
