Can it be? Is HBO’s Band of Brothers finally coming to Blu-ray Disc?
According to a quick news update over at HomeMediaMagazine.com, Warner Home Video announced at the Entertainment Merchants Association conference its intention to release Band of Brothers on Blu-ray sometime this fall.
We’ve had plenty of Band of Brothers Blu-ray false alarms in the past that have made the coveted series high-def appearance into a storied myth. Each times hopes are raised, the lack of an official street date sends them crashing back down.
This time it looks to be real deal, especially considering the timing and huge industry-wide Blu-ray push set to begin in the third quarter. If it is, you better start saving those pennies now. If pricing for a half-season of The Sopranos is any indication, this monster won’t come cheap.
