    Why do they not bring out the whole series instead of bits at a time?would prefer to buy them all in 1 go

    Will they be available as NTSC Blu-rays for the United States?

      There’s no such thing as NTSC Blu-ray’s. These Blu-ray’s will have a 1080p 4:3 image coded into a 1920×1080 pixel area (black bars on either side). Your only issue will be regional coding, but I’m 99.9% certain these discs will be region free as I presume Network will want to sell internationally.

      I’m going to assume the frame rate will be 23.976 fps, but it is possible it’ll be an even 24 – as the Space:1999 sets were.

    • No need – they are region free. You’ll be able to play them anywhere! 🙂
