Because it's a fantastic show?
Because you want to keep a copy and not depend on streaming services that might take the series off their catalog?
Because you're a collector?
Because the Blu-Ray offers better quality than streaming?

You still can't imagine why?

Exactly, great to watch once but why would you watch it again.
Watched it 2 days ago, as others have said it's excellent but you wouldn't want to watch it again.

Not saying I voted cold as this may well be the cheapest price around. Just saying I don't see the point personally when it's available to watch for free

A show of this quality really should be enjoyed in high quality, lots of great shots that really capture the moment that is lost in a crappy low bitrate NowTV stream.

Agreed. Which is why I'm not buying the UK 25fps BD of it. I'll be importing a copy which plays at the correct speed.

I would agree these days I would rather stream than own something but streaming from NOW TV is a big no no... 'up to 720p' no chance.

Whats the point in decent 1080p / 4K / HDR sets if you are just going to stream in 720p. At least Netflix and Amazon are aiming for 1080p minimum with a lot of their own stuff coming out in 4k / HDR. Don't fund NowTV until this changes.

Beat me to it. 720p with a terrible bitrate. Not sure why they do not provide higher quality streams like Amazon and Netflix and let people's connection do the rest.

Yea they're all pretty archaic reasons. I love the idea you imagine the series could just disappear off the internet, but it's far safer on a single disk with no backup at your house
a fantastic mini series,and a must have addition to my dvd/blu-ray/uhd collection.must admit i would prefer a uhd version,but still gonna get this version .Wifey and me are gonna binge watch this when it arrives and get the projector out,as i found waiting for a week for each episode to air at the time excruciating lol because it was that good.heres a link to a bbc production done in 2006,the picture quality is low bitrate,but some how added to the authenticity of the time period:---youtube.com/wat…4KY.oh and have some heat op
Have preordered this with Amazon at £19.99, hopefully their price will drop nearer the time?
When's the release date I pre ordered on eBay

Guys can we just agree that some people want the Blu Ray hard copy and some people want to watch it online?

Theres no right or wrong answer. The common ground in both options is its a great series and i'd say a "must watch", nomatter how you end up doing so.

I don't have a problem with whatever people want to do. I do have a problem when people start listing problems with my choice, which is exactly the post I replied to.

Yep, Acorn have confirmed it. Either go for the French version which runs at the correct 24fps or wait for the US (HBO?) edition.

Bummer. I'll just stick with my Amazon ripped version for now then. If companies want your money they should put the effort in to do things properly.
You’re all delusional, get them out of here
A good show and well worth watching, but for me not best rated TV show on IMDb good.
Just finished watching and found the show very entertaining. Harrowing and very well put together. Recommended. H+
Can you watch this for free using Amazon Prime?

Now TV streams in 2.0 audio. With video compression. Fine for you on your 720p laptop.

Bet that was a great cinematic experience.
