Good news everyone: Caprica will finally get a Blu-ray release in a complete box set !
I was randomly reading what were the upcoming TV shows releases on Amazon.fr and then something caught my eyes : Caprica on Blu-ray ! I was extremely surprised and pleased, given the show wasn't released on Blu-ray in the US.
Universal France decided to release the show not only in a complete box set of all 18 episodes but also on BD discs. We'll have the opportunity to watch Caprica the way it's supposed to be watched, in 1080p with a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track.
The USA and the UK released 2 half-seasons only on DVD, season 1.0 (first 9 episodes) and season 1.5 (last 9 episodes) (by the way, season 1.5 gets released next Monday in the UK).
The french complete Blu-ray and DVD box sets will be released on October 25th 2011.
It is very likely that this Caprica Blu-ray set will be Region Free (all previous seasons of Battlestar Galactica were), so no matter where you live in the world you'll be able to play these Blu-ray discs !
To avoid disappointment, however, it would be better to be cautious. There's like 90% chances that these Caprica Blu-rays will be region Free since all BSG BD were, but it is not a sure thing. I'll be the first to tell you as soon as it is officially confirmed it is indeed Region Free, but now it's probably best to assume that it is Region B only : Europe (except Russia, Ukraine and Belarus), Oceania, Africa, Middle East and Southwest Asia only.
As for the languages and subtitles available on this BR/DVD set, today Amazon.fr says there's only english/french languages and french subtitles. However, it might not be true, the informations might be blurry and approximative - it'll only get released in more than 3 months. If we take a look at some of the previous Universal France releases, there's always more subtitles than just french : for instance, all 4 seasons of Battlestar Galactica have english, dutch, danish, norwegian, swedish and finnish subtitles. The 4th season of BSG even had italian subtitles and language.
This 5-BD high-definition set of Caprica will cost you 38.39€ (= £34.70 and $55.75). The 5-DVD set will cost you 29.99€ (= £27.10 and $43.55). The shipping is free if you live in France, Monaco, Belgium, Switzerland or Luxembourg.
