Yesterday our friend Bill Hunt at TheDigitalBits.com posted his two cents
about various home video tidbits he found out while visiting the 2011 San Diego Comic Con last weekend. A couple of months ago we passed along word
from The Bits that Blu-ray versions of Star Trek: The Next Generation
might be in the works. Now Bill has an update about this:
Multiple sources I spoke with at Comic-Con have also confirmed our report from earlier this year that CBS is hard at work on Star Trek: The Next Generation - Remastered for Blu-ray release starting sometime in 2012. The latest word is that 4 test episodes are currently being worked on for release as a sampler/demo BD disc of the project, and that sampler disc will somehow be available to fans by the end of this year. Watch for additional news in the months ahead.
Wow, nice! Our thanks to Bill for finding that out and posting about it, and to reader Mark Collins Henderson for the heads-up about what was written over at The Bits. Stay tuned, of course, and we'll continue to update our readers about this as soon as we find out anything further (whether from Bill or anywhere else).
