Hi. I did a quick search, but couldn't find any discussions about this - has anyone heard whether TNA will be getting a Bluray release? Does anyone know any barriers for why this might not have followed the release of series 6?

Thanks. Dave.

I think all of us on the forum are waiting with baited breath for news of a blu ray release of TNA. Sadly nothing yet. It is long overdue. The dvd box set was adequate, but no better than VHS quality. In fact the first episode The Eagle's nest was inferior to my VHS copy Exclamation
I'm not sure why this is taking so long. Does anyone know any more Question Rich

We all hoped there'd be a Fourtieth Anniversary release with the episodes properly remastered but October has come and gone with not even a whimper.

could be licensing problems, or perhaps Lionsgate, or whoever is interested in this, have concurred there's no real money to be made...

another example, might be the shape of the source material...etc

I suppose that it could be released in the coming years, given that the owner of TNA is Studioсanal. Just this is not the sort of the series for business, which is the importance of the first category, so to speak.
I remember that at some point, some Avengers fans began to think that the series will not appear on the Blu Ray at all, as it has been already during the heyday of this medium, but it happened, though big belatedly. Sadly, while some official releases of TNA has occurred earlier than The Avengers on VHS, then things changed.

Hi all, I emailed StudioCanal to enquire if TNA was in the wings...

Sadly they've confirmed there are no plans to release the series on BluRay, and their restoration team haven't transferred the film assets for the series.

A real shame I sometimes wish they'd just called the show 'The Avengers' instead, as the way the show is always treated different from The Avengers seems crazy!

Oh well. Let's enjoy the DVDs.

Cheers, D.

Even no plans? Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad I feel like TNA is on a forgotten shelf where already accumulated the huge mass of dust.

.....or "The Avengers Return", anything with the name first, as so many movie sequels are titled.

I think a "Best of" The New Avengers would be an attractive first product to put out, as an introduction to the series for those unfamiliar with it. I personally would buy that over a complete series package. I'm not overly keen on The New Avengers but I adore Joanna Lumley as Purdy. Her fight scenes are sensational.

I feel there's no point to a Best of The New Avengers - there's not many of them altogether anyway and no fans would buy it if there's an inkling of the full set on the horizon.

Agreed. The full series should be issued on blu ray.

Is there any difference in the transfers used for the U.K. Release and the U.S. release? I have the later releases from A&E.
