CBS Prepping More Classic TV For Blu-ray

From blu-ray.com:

Next month, CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Media Home Distribution will bring to Blu-ray three classic TV shows: The Honeymooners, I Love Lucy: Ultimate Season 1 and The Andy Griffith Show: Season 1. All three will be available for purchase on May 6th.

While discussing with Home Media Magazine the extensive restoration work that was needed to prepare these classic shows for Blu-ray release, Ryan Adams, director of multimedia services for CBS Television Distribution, also confirmed that CBS is preparing Blu-ray releases of Gunsmoke, Rawhide, Bonanza, The Wild Wild West, Petticoat Junction, Dynasty, The Beverly Hillbillies, Taxi, and Twin Peaks (with director David Lynch involved with the restoration). According to Mr. Adams, CBS is also more than halfway through a three-year spruce-up of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Re: CBS Prepping More Classic TV For Blu-ray

The actual quote is that they're making those shows "Blu-ray READY" which doesn't necessarily mean they're getting a Blu-ray release (although we know TWIN PEAKS is), and may just mean they'll be used for HD streaming/purchase purposes.

My biggest fear is that the series they've already issued - namely I LOVE LUCY and ANDY GRIFFITH won't sell well enough to warrant releases of all the other seasons.

Hell just give me a complete of Hillbillies on DVD. I don't need blu, but the releases so far have been all over the place and taking forever.

Saw they have Hawaii Five-O in HDX on Vudu. I heard some DVDs of the Andy Griffith Show 'mistakenly' had audio without the laugh tracks- would be nice if they still included that as an option.

Anyone think this is the case? You'd figure by now here would've been news of their respective second seasons being released.

I don't think CBS is in any hurry. While they have many shows prepared for it, you don't find that many being streamed or broadcast in HD yet. They tested the waters and may feel the market isn't quite HD yet enough to support the pricing model they want to use. The first seasons of ILL and TAGS probably proved that. I think we will see a release from time to time to continue to test the market.

No, unless sales for their first seasons were truly abysmal. I imagine they internally committed to releasing the entire series if it hit a certain minimum threshold.

Little House on The Prairie is another matter because it is handled by Lionsgate, which has become one of the most unreliable Blu-ray distributors in the past year. I would be surprised if we got every season of that show.

How exactly was Lionsgate unreliable?

Re: CBS Prepping More Classic TV For Blu-ray

According to the-numbers.com, the first week of release of the bluray sets of I Love Lucy, The Andy Griffith Show, and The Honeymooners on May 6, 2014, each moved less than 11,846 units. (ie. They don't show up in the top-20 weekly release). So each title sold anywhere from 1 to 11,845 copies in their first week of release. The exact numbers are unknown.

http://www.the-numbers.com/home-mark...art/2014/05/11


For the first week of release of Shogun (July 22, 2014), it moved less than 6,270 units. (ie. It moved anywhere from 1 to 6,269 units).

http://www.the-numbers.com/home-mark...art/2014/07/27


For the first week of release of Twin Peaks (July 29, 2014), it moved 12,366 units.

If Shogun, I Love Lucy, Andy Griffith, and The Honeymooners ended up moving below 5000 copies in their first week of release, I wouldn't be surprised if Paramount ends up discontinuing further season sets.

I wouldn't be surprised if these titles (+ Twin Peaks) were Paramount's "trial balloons" to see whether there's a market for classic tv on bluray. Paramount probably already knows there's almost zero market for current non-genre tv on bluray shows (such as CSI, NCIS: Los Angeles, etc ...).

Re: CBS Prepping More Classic TV For Blu-ray

Again, here we go with the "if it didn't sell a billion copies in the first week, it's a failure" mentality. The way these sets are priced, they're the sort of thing many people would "save up" for or wait for a "special occasion" to buy. I'm sure they're worth the asking price, but they still aren't the kind of thing that lends itself to impulse-buying.

Under 10k is a failure. Sales don't just suddenly increase unless heavily reduced in price.

Sorry.

Re: CBS Prepping More Classic TV For Blu-ray

I was interested in the I Love Lucy blu-rays, but at a $120 list price and currently selling for $68 for just season one on Amazon...nope. Compare that to The Dick Van Dyke show which can be picked up for $59 for the entire series.

Re: CBS Prepping More Classic TV For Blu-ray

Speaking directly about I Love Lucy and The Andy Griffith Show, those are the kind of properties that have much longer shelf lives. Pretty much everyone over a certain age has seen them and there is still a viable market for them, even if they don't sell like gangbusters out of the gate. Most people are waiting for a price drop.

I think that programs like I Love Lucy and Andy Griffith, despite their status as classics, have a limited appeal, especially on blu-ray.

The people who are going to be interested in those are most likely over 40 (or probably over 50). If they're really interested in them, they've already bought them on DVD and don't have much interest in shelling out over fifty dollars per season for I Love Lucy.

Catalog movies are a tough sell on blu-ray, and I would extrapolate that catalog television shows are an ever harder sell.

The only television programming I have upgraded from DVD to blu-ray is Star Trek TOS. And even then, I probably wouldn't have bought them if they didn't have the upgraded special effects.

Re: CBS Prepping More Classic TV For Blu-ray

On the surface, it appears Paramount is willing to tolerate 5000-10,000 first week units moved for the Comedy Central stuff. (Most of the comedy stuff was released as one or two disc sets).

Less certain for the Showtime stuff released by Paramount. (The Dexter bluray season sets were moving a lot more than 10k units in their respective first weeks of release). It remains to be seen whether Penny Dreadful and/or Ray Donovan continue to be released on bluray, or end up going dvd-only for subsequent seasons.

For the generic network stuff, most likely Paramount is looking for something that moves more than 10k units in the first week of release. (Possibly why Hawaii Five-0 recently went dvd-only for season 4).

Re: CBS Prepping More Classic TV For Blu-ray

Paramount's home video division is not as centrally run as the other studios. Each show gets a Blu-ray release depending on the division that produced it. That is why the Comedy Central and Showtime productions are all more likely to see Blu-ray.

I Love Lucy only came out in May, give it time. Every season will get released on Blu-ray unless the entire Blu-ray market implodes.

"Most" as in people you make up? What retailers even carry these shows on Blu-ray?

After the first 3-4 weeks of sales, the titles won't show much of any movement unless heavily reduced in price. If they are even lucky to still be on shelves at that point.

Give it time? It's been out for 6 months. It's dead stock (BestBuy.com even shows it as Online only). CBS probably won't even press more copies of it. People that would typically enjoy these types of shows are certainly not going to go crazy for Blu-ray when they still are fine with VHS and maybe DVD. This needs to go sub $15 to even move the existing stock CBS pressed. Even crap studios like Mill Creek stopped That 70's Show when it somewhat appeals to the Blu-ray demographic and was selling for $10. No sales = dead.

When is Season Two coming? A show like this should be pumping out Seasons like crazy as shelf space is limited (like the appeal). There is a reason studios stopped putting out catalog titles.

The relation between Paramount and CBS is complicated.

The "old" Viacom split up in late-2005, into a "new Viacom" and CBS. In terms of tv on dvd/bluray relevance (in this thread), CBS owns the CBS Studios+Network, Showtime, and 50% of The CW network. The "new Viacom" owns the Comedy Central, MTV, Spike, BET, Nickelodeon, etc ..

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viacom#Assets
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...s_owned_by_CBS

The "new Viacom" owns Paramount Home Media Distribution which handles the dvd/bluray releases of the "new Viacom" assets and distributes some stuff from CBS Home Entertainment.

Re: CBS Prepping More Classic TV For Blu-ray

I believe that many of the people who buy TV shows on BD and DVD are waiting for complete series releases instead of individual releases on most all shows whether old or current.

Re: CBS Prepping More Classic TV For Blu-ray

^ Some people have that mentality, which is another reason not to judge success only by the first week's sales. I'm sure the studios would rather get the money for them as they're put out, but some may be waiting just to make sure all the seasons DO get put out!
