A bit of a surprise. An announcement has suddenly popped up that Questar has released a region-free DVD format for The Tribe.

The Series 1 Part 1 release is spread over 3 discs and contains episodes 1 – 26.

In comparison, the former Shout! Factory release contained the same number of episodes but was instead managed over 4 discs. This does beg the question over whether there were some compromises made here with compression and image quality in order to get it onto just the 3 discs.

However, if this does make it more financial possible for Questar, then we could see them finish the complete series, unlike what happened with Shout! Factory.

Time will tell. Of course, fans could just soak up the amazing Vimeo HD release, which supports downloads as well as streaming.
