Yesterday we reported
new details, especially about extras, for CBS/Paramount's upcoming July 24th
Blu-ray Disc release of Star Trek: The Next Generation - Season 1
. The one piece of info we didn't have at the time, however, was pricing...a critical piece of info for most fans who are wondering if they will double-dip and upgrade to this high-def version of the show! Now we've got some info for you about the cost!
Longtime online seller DVDEmpire.com, one of our affiliate retail partners (i.e., buying from them through the links we provide helps to support our site) has begun listing Star Trek: The Next Generation - Season 1
for pre-order, and as of this writing their discounted cost to you is just $79.99 (plus shipping, etc.). The list price they display is $118.00 SRP...which may or may not match the SRP that other sellers (such as Amazon) display later on, when those organizations begin accepting pre-orders. And it's a certainly good deal, with the discounted price amounting to just a little over thirteen dollars per disc for this 6-disc Blu-ray set...and each disc contains more running time than any theatrical film would! For me, it's a sale...I've got the recent "sampler" Blu-ray release titled "The Next Level
," and the quality is incredible. So at this kind of price for the season sets, the price is right as far as I'm concerned. If you agree, you can pre-order from DVDEmpire using the button link below!
