Star Trek: Discovery – Season Two is arriving on Blu-ray Disc on Nov. 12, 2019. The second season ran from Jan. 3 through Aug. 17, 2019 and consists of 14 episodes that streamed exclusively on CBS All Access. For those of us who don’t subscribe to the streaming service, the Blu-ray edition is something to look forward to after an exciting first season.
Since Season 1 aired, CBS All Access has improved their streaming quality to 1080p so there isn’t too much of a video quality advantage. However, because CBS All Access only streams the show in two-channel audio you’ll be able to enjoy deeper 5-channel audio with DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1.
And, you can also listen to the episodes in Dolby Digital 5.1 in five different languages including English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish.
There is also a bunch of production featurettes with behind-the-scenes footage, conversations with cast and crew, costume and create design, and more.
Star Trek: Discovery – Season Two 4-disc set on Blu-ray is selling for $44.99 on Amazon and Best Buy, while the DVD is selling for $34.00 (Amazon) and $27.99 (Best Buy). Best Buy also has a Limited SteelBook Edition (pictured below) priced $49.99.
