Audition Tapes and More on Season Sets

Amazon.co.uk has provided the next piece of the puzzle in regards to the full details of HBO’s DVD and Blu-Ray plans. Their listing for the DVD and BluRay provides a break down of content, including the full list of participants in the commentaries. “Audition tapes” are clearly noted, something not made clear with previous information. The producers had mentioned plans for having them in, so it’s good to see they’ve made it in.

Below you’ll find the details, both for DVD and BluRay, due March 6 in the U.S. We’ve highlighted those features which are BluRay exclusives.

The lack of commentary for episode 9, “Baelor” given how pivotal it is, is perhaps a little surprising. Good to see writer Bryan Cogman is on-board with the commentary on episode 4, as well. And of course there’s GRRM on “The Pointy End” that we’re definitely looking forward to most of all.

Finally, IGN has an exclusive preview of the BluRay interactive Guide to Westeros, and a brief snippet of one of the Histories as recounted by Bran Stark:
