Will Columbo ever hit HD? (Answer:yes)

How come this great series has not been ported over to blu ray? I know they have some type of Japanese set that is on Blu ray and I heard it looks amazing. But what happened to a great all American release?!?

Oh and one more thing...I love Columbo!

Ask Mill Creek. If it ever sees the light of day, it’ll be more than likely be because of them. I vaguely remember my parents watching it when I was a kid, but don’t remember much about it. I did see a few episodes several years ago and did like them. I’d give it a watch.

I'll do you a favor and guarantee a cheap feature packed BD release by saying that I hope it doesn't happen. At least not until I watch all the mostly unopened DVDs I've double dipped of it over the years.

There's a really good set of it from Japan thats on blu ray that you can get on Amazon, so maybe it would be easy just to port their release over here just change the menus

They are awesome. Especially the very early episodes. You can see how things were in the 70's, cities, buildings etc. Young Columbo was so awesome, when he was at his peak as well.

I know right they should do that! That set is expensive btw nearing $400. I can't do it. Nopes. I love Columbo very much but not enough to shell out that kinda cash. Especially when the DVD Collection Set sold on Amazon for $43 and change.

Fabulous Films, based in the UK, is releasing the entire series on blu ray early next year, along with several other Universal TV series.

For U.S. buyers it's currently $257, which is reasonable for a 35 disc set. It's definitely one of the better BD purchases I've made.

re: Will Columbo ever hit HD? (Answer:yes)

I would say that Fabulous Films is sort of Mill Creek's UK counterpart, but there is the difference in price. For example, both companies have recent releases of Miami Vice on Blu, although MC's is about 1/2 the price of FF's. Fabulous does seem to put the extra work into quality (fewer episodes per disc, better packaging) but at the end of the day MC tends to be the better value.

Now we talking!

I just recently bought a 4K tv set and I'm in the shopping for a 4K player. I guess I need to buy me a blu-ray Region B player as well to play these new sets or will there be a US release? I sure hope so.

I've sent Universal Studios an email requesting them to release Columbo on Blu-ray since Japan and Australia have theirs on blu. Let's hope they will respond to my email.

Don't order it from Amazon.com and order from Amazon.jp instead. It's only about $260.00 shipped. Still not cheap but for the amount of content the price IMO is certainly reasonable.

Almost always cheaper when you order from the country it's released in.

Columbo plays on weekends on regular digital television. On saturdays on Cozi. On Sundays on ME TV. On ME TV the episodes are in HD 720P. They look great. Widescreen. I know the images are clipped when converted to widescreen which is a damn shame but such is the nature when turning fullscreen to widescreen.

I’ve been watching on peacock and they list it as 4K there and it looks incredible.


As for that Blu-ray set it would be great if it included the original Mystery Movie theme in every episode
