But what the real clincher is going to be is dvd sales. Scifi nerds buy dvds. A million people might be watching this show, but TPTB (dellusionally) think that they can sell 30 million dvds in the first month domestically and double that internationally.
I suspect the clincher will be whether season 1 of Defiance will be actually released on bluray in America. (There's a listing for a UK bluray version with a July 15, 2013 release date). Or whether the bluray version gets canned at the last minute.

If season 1 of Defiance is only released on dvd and not bluray, one would guess Universal doesn't have much confidence in the dvd set being a hot seller.

In recent years, there's been quite a few Universal released sci-fi tv show season sets which didn't bother with a bluray version in America, such as: Caprica, Alphas, Eureka, Warehouse 13, The Event, etc ...
