Germany Miami Vice (1984-1989) Complete Ultimate Collection

Note: Initial information that suggested this release would use new 4K masters was later found to be false.

This is breaking news in Germany right now, so details are scarce, but apparently, all 111 episodes have been remastered in 4K resolution for the first time, and will be spread over 35 discs. The "unabridged" term likely refers to Germany, where apparently, several episodes have only been available in cut versions.

Also, I forgot to mention that this release will be exclusive to the forthcoming Koch Media Home Entertainment online shop, which will open on 1 October 2020. NUnfortunately, I have no idea if they will ship internationally, yet.

Note: Initial information that suggested this release would use new 4K masters was later found to be false.

I already have the UK Fabulous Films release, but this is extremely tempting.

How bizarre. I’ll pre-order it, this kind of crazy unexpected release should be rewarded.

The database of bluray-disc.de says 1:33:1

But I know https://www.filme.de/ will put a news about the box this evening online. Maybe there will be more information.

Now that's how a Miami Vice box should look!

Let us know when there's a link to the new online shop.

I'll buy it October 1 if they let me.

Not true. In fact almost all of their releases have english subtitles. Just take at look at the caps results, all of them have english subtitles listed.

Shame they're not releasing it *in* 4K but I do of course realise that a 35-disc UHD set would have an astronomical price tag (though the cost of newly transferring five seasons of TV in 4K is itself astronomical, did Universal do it (which is an interesting development if so) or have Koch undertaken it themselves?). Very tempted nonetheless but no English mono is something of a deal breaker.
