As previously reported, 'Lost: The Complete Fifth Season' will hit Blu-ray on December 8 with an exclusive interactive online experience: LOST University.
Each visit to LOST University through the “LOST: The Complete Fifth Season” Blu-ray disc will connect viewers to a unique and exclusive experience, powered by BD-LIVE technology. Upon launching the innovative interface, students immediately get access to their personalized lesson plans, compelling HD Audio-Visual presentations and communication from the LOST University faculty and staff. Like any real university, campus life at LOST University isn't solely focused on higher learning, pop quizzes and homework. Through an extended web experience, students will be able to pay visits to the campus bookstore to purchase LOST U merchandise, or discuss their school experience and “LOST” theories through study-groups on the LOST University message boards. Potential students will even have the opportunity to prep for the LOST U experience in advance on www.lostuniversity.org with story and character refresher courses and advanced reading suggestions... all providing information vital to getting up-to-speed with the world of LOST as it heads into its final season.
LOST University expands the world of “LOST”—viewers won’t just visit that world, but begin to understand it. Every semester, LOST University brings students deeper into the mythology, the history, the philosophy, and the mysteries of television’s ultimate mystery.
A few of the courses include: Introductory Physics of Time Travel, History, Family Psychology, The Languages of LOST, Jungle Survival Basics, Deciphering Hieroglyphics, Art of LOST Seminar, and Philosophy 101.
Courses begin on December 8 when the Blu-rays hit stores and enrollment is now open: www.lostuniversity.org.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray set of 'Lost: The Complete Fifth Season' is $79.99 and you can find the latest specs for the release linked from our Blu-ray Release Schedule, where it's indexed under December 8.
