Any rumors of an X-Files Blu-ray release?

With TNG and Enterprise being released on Blu-ray, and DS9 being on CBS' "radar" for a Blu-ray release, I was wondering if there had been any rumors about an X-Files Blu-ray release?

ETA: Fox might even be able to reframe the earlier seasons to 16:9 provided that all the shots were protected for that ratio.

I've rewatched the show twice on Netflix, but I would still probably buy a Blu-Ray set. I'm way more interested in them wrapping up the series with an alien invasion movie, though.

Got the entire series on DVD, but haven't watched the show in years. I'd snap up a BD release in a heartbeat!

Fingers crossed that they pull it off.

Re: Any rumors of an X-Files Blu-ray release?

i would also double dip for Blu-rays. some of those eps from the first and second season are pretty grainy.

I think I read somewhere that the grain is inherent to the film stock used by Canadian productions in the 1990's. Even if they could clean it up, I'm not sure if they should - especially if it comes at lowering the quality of the video in other ways.

I just hope if/when the show gets put on Blu Ray, they can restore the alternate taglines that were used in the opening credits of various episodes (the ones that deviated from "The Truth is Out There"). While I haven't seen much of the DVDs due to the expense when they were released, I heard the taglines where changed to the "truth" one for every episode.

the DVDs all have the correct taglines. they weren't all changed to The Truth Is Out There.

In fact, there were only a handful of episodes across the entire series (less than 20 in any case) that had a changed tagline. And as far as I recall, they were all intact for the DVD release.

Re: Any rumors of an X-Files Blu-ray release?

This is a definitive article speaking about The X-Files in HD.
The company, which has already created the latest HD versions of "The X-Files," "24," and other series Stateside,
Stateside, illuminate Hollywood has already remastered series for CBS, Fox and Universal, among others. The solution has been used, for example, to create the latest HD versions of The X-Files, 24, Star Trek: The Next Generation and Pee-wees Playhouse. From there these series can go on to find new viewers in the digital space and other yet to be developed outlets.
"Any asset that is valuable needs to be digitized and stored for current and future delivery,"
In launching its 4K conversion solution internationally, illuminate Hollywood, which is privately held, recently hired content rights exec Steve Galloway as senior vp business development. His job: to introduce the iConform technology abroad and to broker distribution deals for independent clients, serving as the conduit in finding new audiences for the enhanced programs.
He told The Hollywood Reporter hed be meeting with some of the key European rights holders the BBC, Beta, TF1, ITV whose rich back catalogs are likely crying out for a dusting off.
any shows from these companies you want in 4k?

We have heard rumors earlier this year in May on thedigitalbits website:
Speaking of Fox, weve also learned that the post facility HTV is involved in the effort to bring The X-Files TV series to Blu-ray Disc. Which is good in that its further confirmation that The X-Files is coming to Blu-ray (something we first revealed here in The Rumor Mill back in November) but its bad because weve also heard theres some up-conversion going on of original footage (rather than a full HD upgrade and restoration). As it happens, HTV was the company that did the remastering work on CBS Star Trek: The Next Generation Season Two

Given that HTV botched the second season remastering work of The Next Generation so badly that CBS Digital took everything back in-house for the remaining seasons, I wouldn't take that as a positive sign.

I think FOX is concerned that the X-Files won't sell well on Bluray. X-Files might be more popular with casual viewers than Trek, but Trek fans are more willing to buy their Trek shows on video.

Interesting. I heard differently (never bought the DVD sets myself due to the expense at the time).

The less involvement HTV has with remastering, the better.
