Confirmed: No Blu-Ray For 24/7 Penguins Capitals

HBO 24-7 DVDFor those of you who were holding off pre-ordering HBO’s “24/7 Penguins/Capitals: Road to the NHL Winter Classic” to see if HBO was going to announce a Blu-Ray version (as I was), wait no longer: HBO will be releasing Pens/Caps on DVD only.

HBO’s Sports Media Relations department confirmed that no Blu-Ray version is planned; they also pointed out that “this [will be] the first time a ’24/7′ has ever been available for purchase.” In other words, baby steps.

So while Blu-Ray would certainly be preferred by some, the Sports Emmy-winning broadcast will be a welcome addition to any hockey fan’s library even any format… and required viewing in Washington and Pittsburgh, of course. In fact, fans of the Flyers and Rangers may want to buy it too — not only is it great television, but the more DVDs that sell the more likely the 2012 Winter Classic will get a DVD (and perhaps Blu-Ray) release.
