Universal Studios Home Entertainment today unveiled the full specs for its upcoming HD DVD debut of 'Heroes: Season One' box set.
One of the most buzzed-about HD DVD releases of the summer, Universal [post 630]announced earlier this month that it would debut the breakout series in high-def on August 28, day-and-date with the standard def release.
Now, they've issued a full press release detailing the contents of the set, which makes good on comments made earlier this year by the show's creators that it would contain a well of never-before-seen bonus content.
In addition to 1080p transfers and Dolby Digital-Plus 5.1 surround (1.5mbps) soundtracks on every episode, the supplemental features are extensive. Goodies include the original 73-minute version of the show's pilot (with optional filmmaker commentary), five making-of featurettes, and no fewer than fifty deleted scenes.
Universal has set a $79.95 list price for the HD DVD version, about $20 more than the DVD.
We've added full specs for our product page for 'Heroes: Season One,' which you'll find listed in our HD DVD Release Schedule, under August 28.
