However, both Blu-ray combo packs include DVD and Digital HD copies, as well as 9 deleted scenes with commentary, over 100 minutes of featurettes, and the Alicia Keys video “It’s On Again.” Several exclusive Blu-ray editions of the film have also been released from retailers including Amazon, Best Buy, Target and Walmart.
The 22-episode third season of Once Upon A Time is now available on Blu-ray Disc in a 5-Disc collection from ABC. The boxed set comes with several bonus features such as “Inside the Writer’s Room,” deleted scenes, and several featurettes. There’s also a DVD edition that costs about $10 less than the Blu-ray, however, neither edition comes with digital copies of the season. The adventure/fantasy series stars Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, and Lana Parrilla.
And, HBO’s original series Boardwalk Empire: Season 4 is available in a 4-Disc Blu-ray collection that includes Digital HD copies through UltraViolet or iTunes, and plenty of bonus material including commentaries.
