Cubs Fans: 2016 World Series Blu-ray Coming in Standard and Collector’s Edition Packages

2016 World Series Blu-ray

Listen up, Chicago Cubs fans. Now that the Curse of the Goat is over and the windy city is World Series champs for the first time in 108 years, it’s almost time to relive the seven-game classic in high definition on Blu-ray or DVD for low-def fans.

Shout! Factory has announced The 2016 World Series Blu-ray and DVD release is coming on December 6th. The Blu-ray edition will be a two-disc set and also include the DVD to create a combo pack.


A week later on December 13th is when The 2016 World Series Collector’s Edition: Chicago Cubs Blu-ray or DVD set arrives (pictured above). Geared specifically for Cubs fans, this eight-disc set includes all seven games from the World Series and a bevy of bonus features right through to the victory parade itself.

Extras available on the standard World Series Blu-ray include season-long highlights, as well as excerpts from the record-setting celebratory parade that turned Chicago blue with a crowd estimated at nearly 5 million.

The Collector’s Edition includes the aforementioned extras along with SleeveStats which offer official stats, game trivia and more to enhance the viewing experience for each of the seven World Series games; a bonus disc of the pennant-clinching NLCS Game 6 at Wrigley Field; as well as four audio options, allowing home audiences to watch the games while listening to either the television broadcast, Cubs Radio Network announcers, the Indians Radio Network or a Spanish-language version of the broadcasts.

The eight-disc collector’s edition is already a bestseller at Amazon.com where you can find pre-order and pricing information.
