Battlestar Galactica - Reasons Revealed For 3rd Season DVD Delay


Release Timed To Tie-In With 4th Season Broadcast Debut

Last week we passed along info from our friends at The Digital Bits website, that Battlestar Galactica - Season 3 DVDs were being held up for release until April 2008. There's been lots of speculation about why this is, both at The Bits and elsewhere. Theories mostly have to do with completing the extras, or possibly combining webisodes into one long "feature" among the extras, or making a high-def disc version to release at the same time, or the studio wanting the Razor DVD to have a chance to sell on it's own for a while.

"None of the above" appears to be the answer today. Yesterday our friends at TheDigitalBits.com posted about a story in the L.A. Times, stating that the show's 4th (and final) season will begin airing in April 2008. Our good friend, Bits-runner Bill Hunt, speculated at his site that the reason for the DVD delay on the third season would be to tie in with the broadcast debut of the show's fourth season premiere.

Our sources confirm the cause for the delay; it's no surprise since the studios prefer to tie their DVD releases to the new season premieres. Just as soon as we get a specific street date for the 3rd Season set, we'll be certain to let you know. Stay tuned!
