Here’s what the studio press release has to say about this box set’s use of BD-Live:
For the first time ever on Blu-ray™, fans of “the most influential show since Seinfeld” (Rob Sheffield, Rolling Stone) can watch the latest episodes of “The Office” without ever setting their DVR when “The Office” Season Six arrives on Blu-ray™ Hi-Def September 7, 2010 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. As part of this groundbreaking set, the Blu-ray™ release of “The Office” Season 6 will allow fans to access content like never before via BD-Live™. Through their Internet-connected Blu-ray™ player using BD-Live™, purchasers will now have an opportunity to watch the latest five episodes from Season Seven after they air on their home televisions. Season Seven episodes will be available in HD, pending individual Internet connection speeds and will be offered with limited commercial interruptions.
You know how else you can watch the latest episodes of the show after they air on NBC? Hulu. I’m just sayin’…
Anyway, I guess it’s nice that Universal is trying to find some use for BD-Live.
Here are those clips I promised. Enjoy:
As mentioned, the deadline for the contest is today. So get your entries posted before the end of the day. Winners will be announced on Tuesday (because Monday is a holiday). Good luck!
