Discovery to release 8 titles on DVD – but no Blu-ray?

Oh, how we love Discovery shows in hi-def. And that’s why we’re surprised to find Gaiam Inc. will release eight Discovery titles on DVD this month, but not on Blu-ray Disc. “American Loggers,” “How the Universe Works,” “Dinosaurs: Perfect Predators” — those are a few of the titles that will hit shelves throughout the month of June. They’re all great shows which were probably shot in HD but unfortunately dropped to 480p for home release. I guess that’s why they invented upscaling?

Here’s a list of the Discovery shows headed for DVD (from Discovery Channel, HD Theater, Science Channel, and Animal Planet) along with their release dates:

  • American Loggers (June 14, 2011)
  • How the Universe Works (June 28, 2011)
  • Dinosaurs: Perfect Predators (June 14, 2011)
  • Prehistoric (June 7, 2011)
  • Submarine: Hidden Hunter (June 21, 2011)
  • Infested (June 28, 2011)
  • How It’s Made – Auto (June 7, 2011)
  • Sunrise Earth: Greatest Hits (June 21, 2011)
