CBS Issues Statement on TNG S1 Disc Replacement

Just six days after the official release of Star Trek: The Next Generation - Season 1 on Blu-Ray, CBS have issued a press release regarding a disk replacement programme for the three discs in the set affected by audio problems. It's wonderful to see CBS reacting so fast to the problem. Here's the statement in full, including what you need to do to get your new discs:

Dear Star Trek Fans,

We have discovered an anomaly in the English 7.1 DTS Master Audio track in our Star Trek: The Next Generation Season 1 Blu-ray Box set. There are some episodes that inadvertently had their front channel designations incorrectly mapped, resulting in an undesired playback experience when listening to them in a 7.1 or 5.1 Surround Sound environment.

We are quickly working to remedy the situation. Replacement discs (Disc 1, 3 and 4) will be made available free of charge. Please email phe.stng@bydeluxe.com for details regarding the replacement program. You may also call 877-DELUXE6 ( 877-335-8936 ) between 8am to 6pm Pacific, Monday-Friday.

We strive to provide our fans the best Blu-ray experience possible and sincerely apologize for this inconvenience.

Paramount Home Entertainment (UK) have confirmed details for a blu-ray disk replacement service for those fans who purchased the set in the UK. The full details are included below:
