From Acorn I would expect nothing less. Oh well, if they don't want additional sales that is entirely their choice!

They can **** right off with their DVD-only release.

Looks look the 1-6 blu ray set has been shelved. According to the press release the boxset is only getting a dvd release on 31st of may.
To be honest I was considering cancelling my order anyway given that the whole point of making the 'full set' was to watch from the start, with my wife, something we'd never seen... but since the ending was spoiled all over the national radio and my wife heard it on her morning run there's not a lot of point...

Wow, another cluster**** from Acorn. The mind boggles as to who is being paid in these firms to make these shoddy decisions. Nobody wants just Series 6 on Blu-ray when no other series before it have one. The average Joe shopping in the supermarket will just get the DVD.

They should have shelved the S6 only blu and done the boxset only for it alongside the DVD.

It's one of the biggest current UK shows but then look at what happened with Chernobyl, they had no clue then either.

Looks like I'll be keeping my mkv downloads then and the wallet stays closed. Bloody muppets.

That is the most ridiculous thing I have read for a while. I have rewatched shows 4 to 5 times before. everyone also knows how a movie ends does that mean you 'don't buy it then'

There is no guarantee with streaming tv shows that it will be there forever in 10 years time. and you have to pay a monthly fee to 'rent it' if I choose in 10 years time to watch line of duty. I have to hope it is on streaming and rent it. if I have finance problems if I BOUGHT the thing and OWNED it for life I could watch it and get it out and watch it whenever the hell I like without opening my wallet out

Until they do a 'pay for a 4k or 1080p MKV file copy' to get rid of physical media.. streaming will never surpass actually owning something.

I have made the choice going from VHS DVD Blu ray. and some 4k. but I am not going for any more platinum after that to own physically anymore it's going to have to be a hard drive with a 90 gig File. and I am not gonna surf 10 streaming planforms paying $100 a month to rent tv shows they are alright to watch once if it is someone like you. but someone like be a decade late wants to re-watch something i can.

for example I just watched the Shield again from start to finish all seven season the blu ray set... it isn't available on ANY streaming at all and if it was why would I pay to rent it?

It's like owning a house you own it can do whatever you like with it. renting a house you are paying dead money and can't do anything to it.

Well this is bonkers if they have pulled the 1-6 BD boxset. With the ratings you’d think they be pushing for a 4K release let alone BD (I presume they probably can’t do a 4K as I doubt it was all filmed at a high enough resolution for it).

Got a friend who has a contact at AIM. Apparently the complete 1-6 Blu-ray boxset is still coming but at a later date.

It's like owning a house you own it can do whatever you like with it. renting a house you are paying dead money and can't do anything to it.


Well first of all I rent and considering the average length of a mortgage it makes no sense for me to try and get a mortgage now, it makes sense if you have a family but I'm single and to tie it back to the movies, we only live once. It doesn't matter if it's money or movies or clothes or anything, it doesn't mean anything when you're not here, you can't take it with you now granted, that makes it sound like I'm saying go out and spend every penny while you can but what I mean is, unless it's something that's making a difference in your life, it's ok, it's not worth worrying about. There's more things more important. I don't know what age any of you are on here but you do get to a certain point in life where you realise ok....I'm at the half way point or I'm past the half way point, you start making changes in life. I wish I was 20 again and thinking of mortgages and getting a good job and I remember the big thing was an ISA account lol. You build up interest! And you go for the yearly holiday abroad and you get a wife and kids etc but as time goes on......life happens. If you have a mortgage that's great.Obviously the good thing about owning your house is it can be sold if you end up in a bad position. At the end of the day it's just stuff to pass the time. We can't take the house or the media or the money or anything else when we go. It's just stuff to get us through the day.



Everything is going to be rented. People listen to music for free on Youtube and for free on Spotify, no money changes hands. The BBC Iplayer has tons of stuff on there as does the Channel 4 All4 player, loads of old TV shows, they're not going to take them away any time soon or if ever because the general public will never go back to paying for DVDs in large numbers and they're used to getting those services for free, they're not going to start paying money for stuff they got for free and likewise they can't start suddenly selling DVDs of stuff if they take it off streaming.

I feel like a lot of people use the internet as an excuse and they think that these companies are going to take things off their services when they aren't. Look at Disney. Look how cheap their blu rays are on Ebay, okay people are getting rid of them because they can pay £5 a month and get them all in the same picture quality but I'm sure Disney have no intentions of going back to physical media again. It wouldn't make sense for them to start taking movies and shows off their service.


And even hard drives with a 90gb file. Fibre broadband is cheap, 90gb can be downloaded in less than an hour. The internet isn't what it was even 10 years ago.


I do see your point about many shows not being on any streaming service but at some point shows like The Shield will end up on one of them. I just think in general, people don't have or want lots of technology in their homes. No one wants TV stands with big metal boxes under their TV and loads of wires and then a bookcase full of media. There is so much on Tv now that there is always something to watch.

Well usually with a TV series the first time watching it you are either watching it on some streaming service or network over lets say 5 to 7 years. ? then maybe 5 years later you decide I feel like watching that series all over again... well then hang on it isn't on any streaming service now that I am paying a monthly fee on if only I had just bought the boxset 5 years ago I would just be able to grab it and watch a couple of episode a night for the rest of my life.

This is the way I think. I am From Australia too so I don't get that BBC player. or HBO Max (HBO max you need foxtel which is only like over $100 a month for about 50 channels where only 5 you might be interested in)

So lets use line of Duty for example here I have seen it floating around several streaming services. plus needed foxtel to watch the latest season that just aired (if you want to do this legally)

can you see now why it would be so much easier for someone like me to just buy the damm boxet and own it and watch it whenever I like for the next 20 to 30 years?

Now the biggest issue with TV is a lot isn't released on blu ray. I own Oz on boring standard DVD and six feet under I would love them on blu ray but will never happen, so I gotta keep my DVDs around or download them Illegally as a copy on my HD Once again if you are in Australia no HBO Max so yeah it would be better to buy the damm thing and play the licences musical chairs game.

I have my own rules I will not blind buy TV shows and will only buy complete seasons that I know I will re-watch again every few years in life.

So that is where streaming is good watching something for the first time, and If I love it I will want to own it not rent it and hope it is still there in 5 years time after it's completion.

Line of Duty is something I would like to buy, it's been shuffled around all sorts of streaming platforms here.

Apologies in advance for bluntness but that is utter sh!t; I've re-watched loads of TV multiple times.
Your comment is like saying it's pointless re-watching a movie if you know how it will end and loads of people will tell you how wrong you are about that (you even imply it yourself); why treat TV differently?

Didn't read down the whole thread; I see this is a short version of what Adster81 said!

I'm obviously 'No one' - I love buying the best 'metal boxes' to give me the best experience and am happy to have wires; though I'll get them neatly arranged if they're a problem.

But most of all - I LOVE my bookcase (actually bookcases, cupboards and plastic tub overspill storage) in addition to a whole room with floor to ceiling shelving) of media... I'm proud to have it there looking (to my eyes) spectacular and like a library of the stories I have collected over the years.
People might say the list of movies you have available to download is a great selection but nobody I know ever looks at a list on a screen practically open mouthed in awe at your dedication to searching out the best editions, collecting from all over the world, the beauty of the art and the physical feel of the tangible items in your hand...

Pulling myself back on topic - Does anyone know if the delay between S6 Blu-ray and the S1-6 Blu-ray set is to give them time to upgrade the audio from that used on the DVDs (DD 2.0) or will it be upgraded on 1-5 to match S6 (DTS-HD HR 5.1).

Obviously I'm hoping for the latter but you never know how lazy they'll be when you look at streamed movies that have DV or Atmos but the physical release doesn't or the many TV series shot in HD that only get an SD release in the UK but an HD release abroad (even if they're actually a UK production!)

Here here. Physical Media forever. I don't care how many streaming services there are or ways to watch TV shows now I still and always will as long as they are available buy a physical copy which I watch and rewatch. I'm proud of my collection. For me nothing beats owning a physical copy, with all the extras, artwork and having it on my shelf to watch whenever I choose rather then spending ages trying to find out what service has it on this month and in some cases I.e. Netflix you aren't always guaranteed it will be there next time I want a rewatch.

I can't imagine Acorn would use DD 2.0 on the blus (although they might). I'd expect LPCM 2.0 on all series, and possibly DTS 5.1 on S3/S4/S5. (I'm surprised they splashed the cash for DTS-HD HR for S6, but nice to see them move closer to lossless 5.1 tracks!)
