HBO’s ‘Westworld’ getting released to 4k Blu-ray Limited Edition

westworld-the-complete-first-season-4k-blu-ray-720pxSeason 1 of the HBO series Westworld will release to disc on November 7, and along with conventional Blu-ray and DVD formats will come a 6-disc 4k Ultra HD Limited Edition in special metal case. This is the first HBO Original Series to be released to 4k Blu-ray, and the first fictional TV series (that we know of) to be scheduled for the high resolution format.

Westworld will also feature High Dynamic Range (HDR) specifications that improve the color depth, contrast and detail of the 2160p video. Most cable and satellite TV services don’t come close to broadcasting in 2160p, so viewing Westworld in 4k will surely be a new experience.

And, the audio will be available in Dolby Atmos to add to the upgrade of the series. Available in English only, the soundtrack will default to Dolby TrueHD 7.1 for audio systems that don’t support Atmos.

Digital copies of the episodes of Westworld are included in this combo edition, and we fully expect Digital UHD versions to authenticate with Vudu given that other Warner Bros. 4k titles with Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision can be authenticated with the service, although which HDR format (HDR10 or Dolby Vision) is used for Westworld we’re not sure of yet.

The Westworld 6-disc Ultra HD Blu-ray edition from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has a list price of $64.99 (check pre-order pricing below), and comes with all episodes on 4k Blu-ray, Blu-ray, and digital copies.

The series will also be available in a 1080p Blu-ray edition, along with Digital HD copies of the episodes. That edition carries an MSRP of $54.99. A 480p DVD edition has a suggested retail price of $49.99.

A trailer for Season 2 of Westworld was revealed at Comic-Con San Diego last month, and is scheduled to premiere sometime next year.
