Re: Rumor: TNG-HD is a-coming
Or bad news, depending on how you look at it. CBS is making money off their archive content while spending $0. That doesn't mean CBS is interested in spending money on improving that old content. Now if Netflix/Amazon/Apple comes out and says it will pay more money for HD content, that would be unambiguous good news.
Nah its definitely GOOD news....firstly STNG-R would be "archive" material, but new so that would not be covered under the current deal, hence more dollars...secondly, the fact the old stuff is making so much money is good enough reason to invest dollars to make more $$$. Two other reasons: TOS-R's huge DVD-Bluray success before Netflix, and think of it as CBS making an investment in their future, keeping STNG going as long as possible with fresh interest.
