Why they want me to pay for something I saw at better quality for free is beyond me. Put it out on Blu-Ray, and I'll buy it day 1.

I totally agree. I feel sick that I might not be able to own this because they might only do a dvd release, because I love the show so much.

As far as I can tell, FOX hasn't even officially announced a DVD release of the first season. This pre-order is Amazon's doing--notice that there's no release date listed on the Amazon page. So, I'm guessing that when FOX does (and I'm sure they will) announce the DVD release, it will be available on Blu-Ray. Blu-Ray is so popular, it would be stupid of them not to make it available (although, this is FOX we're talking about; don't even get me started on the stupid decisions they've made... Firefly...)

There's a "sign up to be notified" for the blu-ray that I didn't see before. Maybe that's a good sign. I'd heard rumors that there wouldn't be a bd release, but maybe they were wrong. The audience for New Girl probably watches most of their shows in HD, so I would assume it would sell reasonably well. I know the main producers, including Zooey, are aware that the blu-ray release is an issue fans care about. Hopefully, they will push for it as well.

That's not a sign at all. Amazon puts those up there whether there's going to be a release or not. The place to follow is a site called They have the dirt on all of this, including official press releases from the studio - and that one said DVD only.

I ended up buying this from iTunes on a Season pass, as that IS in HD.

choosing not to buy is not my problem, it's my choice. the show isn't upconverted from sd, but maybe you need glasses, although it probably won't matter in your cave.

i'm supposed to have to even consider the grand scheme of life when i shop for television shows or movies? i think anyone who ponders such important things as often as you seem to think they should, probably shouldn't be watching tv or movies anyway, because it's certainly not more important than feeding the hungry. i'm glad that you made me realize this OR care whether or not i choose to use lower case letters, proper grammar or spell check on a forum for a television show on

in the "grand scheme of life," i don't really think how i illustrate my point makes a lick of difference. NO ONE should have to watch a show originally broadcasted in hd on dvds. it's just plain stupid and insulting to the viewers and fans of the show. well, the ones who don't live in caves. in other words, your friends, family and neighbors.

Whiners unite: You can buy the whole season in HD. You just won't have it on an actual, physical disc:
New Girl/Glee Sneak Peeks [HD]

My last comment was "deleted by amazon", so I guess the politically correct police came down on it. Or maybe it didn't send properly from my cave...

Only someone living in cave didn't know it would be offered in HD via download and/or streaming. We want it on blu-ray. The physical copy is really the point of owning things at this point and time. Most people aren't even prepared to make that switch to own digital media and then watch in on their HDTVs. The studios will get their way with it eventually....that's why they're not completely behind blu-ray like they should be. But it will be at least a decade or more before streaming/downloading even compares to the sales of physical content for all television and movie buying. 2 Broke Girls got a blu-ray release and New Girl didn't. I think the folks at Fox might also be taking their directions from someone living in a cave.

Everyone knows all the people at Fox live in caves and want to take away Medicare. I'm sure you all eat at the same stone table. While I'm out doing the crusading for the downtrodden who have had their right to a New Girl blu-ray release taken from them. You know, because that's clearly what I do.

Wow, what a shock to talk about a product on the product page on! Just buy the dvd, relax by torch light and watch the show in 480p. Woo-hoo, I'm sick over this. Well, yes, in the same way I'm sick when a classic album gets remastered and they butcher the job. I guess these message boards were created for people because Amazon expected people to NOT have an opinion...even a strong one? Even if they are cave dwellers? I think not.

$39.99 to own streaming content that doesn't even come in 1080p. I'd bet an important body part that this would be LESS on blu-ray at Best Buy for week one or at the very least, the same price. The studio is producing the content, giving me discs and art and cases and people work to do this have to be paid AND it's 1080p. So, they SAVE all the money on production and I'm supposed to be happy, not satisfied or, pardon me, not even be "sick" over being asked to spend $39.99 to watch what amounts to video on-demand from the cable company? You'd HAVE to live in something rock-like to think that's ok, acceptable or any kind of good deal....even as a back-up to blu-ray. Season 1/ 19.99 for 720p streaming and maybe we're talking about a realistic back-up to standard definition.

NO BLU = NO BUY. I own Big Bang Theory, 2 Broke, Bluebloods, etc. on Blu-ray, so why suddenly did they put New Girl in 2005 mode? Almost every series since 2010 has been avaliable on both standard and Blu-ray, and we're heading into 2013. This is a total ripoff! So to repeat, NO BLU = NO BUY.

How I Met Your Mother Season 7 AND 30 Rock Season 6: just two examples NOT on blu either. Blu ain't a guarantee.
