Smallville Season 5 on HD DVD, Nov 28

Warner Home Video has earlier this year promised that 2006 will be the 'Year of Superman' with a bunch of Superman-related animated and live action features due on home video. And we thought they were only due for a DVD release...

Following Warner's previous announcements of Superman: The Movie, Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut and Superman Returns on HD DVD (all of which are due for retail on Nov 28) and a small insert indicating Smallville S5 as a TV on HD DVD contender, it has finally broke its silence to announce that Smallville Season 5 will be available on HD DVD, this November 28. It will be a 5 discs HD DVD set priced at $79.98 SRP, although Warner Home Video DVD Shop is selling directly to consumers at $59.95, details here.

The entire season (the series already started being shot in High Definition since season one) will be presented in 1080p High Definition 16x9 1.78:1 with Dolby Digital-Plus 5.1 audio. If you've been a fan of the series, you'll be glad to know this HD DVD debut of Smallville Season 5 marks the first time Smallville is given the 5.1 surround sound treatment as the season sets DVD released to date were all in Dolby Digital Stereo... Other highlights includes Warner Home Video's In-Program Experience (a feature similar to In-Movie Experience) for the 5th season opener...
