    DVDs still sell more than Blu Ray because more people have DVD players. So more things are released on DVD, especially TV shows. Even with modern popular movies, they're often released as a DVD & Blu Ray combo pack. Some people watch on laptops or PCs and computers are more likely to have a DVD drive than a Blu Ray one. A lot of people stream now anyway and don't buy physical discs at all.

    It was shot on 16mm though. It was shown at Venice festival two years ago, so maybe they did an HD remaster, let's hope so.

    Wrong, it was shot on film (16mm).

    Of course it's not as good as a 35mm production but it's still equivalent to ~2K resolution.

    It was but the final version might not be on film. It was made for TV so the final version might be on tape.

    Yeah they probably added snippets from some videos and edited the whole thing on tape. Hopefully those reels aren't lost...

    Maybe because the version they showed was unrestored. It doesn't change the fact that it was shot on film, and not on tape.

    The average person does not care that much about video or audio quality. They would comprise the largest home video market. That's the reason many things are not released on Blu Ray, not enough sales to justify the expense of restoring movies/TV that are not going to sell enough to make a profit. Blu Ray is not necessarily better picture quality. That depends on the source or how something is restored. Like some Blu Rays & 4K of older movies have attempts to remove film grain and the result makes people look like wax figures or an old video game.

    Many people can't afford the better stuff anyway. Like many people decades ago had a cheap component stereo or a Walkman, and not audiophile electronics that costs thousands of dollars. Most TV channels do not broadcast in HD, and
    definitely not 4K, especially the ones that are not major networks such as local channels that would be the UHF ones. So why would a lot of people buy an expensive TV set rather than a cheaper one at Walmart? HD mostly matters on larger TVs. Does a person need a 4K TV to watch daytime soap operas & game shows? A home theater system does not make a lot of sense for people living in an apartment because playing something really loud would disturb the neighbors and there might not be as much room for a big TV & large speakers.
