Special Features on True Blood Season 2 Blu-Ray Discs

May 27, 2010 by  

As most True Blood fans know, the second season DVD set is now available! While some fans may re-watch their favorite episodes or have a viewing party with some friends, others will be able to live feed their viewing experience on Facebook and Twitter. The new Blu-Ray Disc addition of season two enables automatic updates to social networking sites, uploads scenes directly from the discs, transform normal photographs into True Blood-inspired user pictures, and receive virtual gifts, such as a vampire royalty crown.

After the discs are inserted into an internet-connected Blu-Ray player, fans can watch a video about the Live Feed and are able to choose one of the three factions to join: Vampire, the Fellowship of the Sun, or a Maenad. After, you can choose what photos you want to be transformed- for example, if you choose “Vampire” your user picture will grow pale and blood will begin to drizzle down your chin. Additionally, your Facebook and Twitter status’ will automatically be updated about your progress in the series, such as “(your name) just came out of the coffin to watch Episode 1.”

HBO‘s Sofia Chang notes that these “extras” were added to the discs because of fans unwavering love for the series:

“For True Blood, we have such engaged and passionate fans that we really wanted to provide them with a way to extend the fiction beyond what they see in the show and share that passion with their friends.

True Blood’s Season 2 Blu-Ray Facebook feature is said to be the most extensive social networking feature ever on Blu-Ray! As some of the most passionate fans out there, True Blood fans are definitely in for a treat with all the different DVD options out there!  Season 2 was released on May 25th and is available in both DVD and Blu-Ray. The DVD set is $32.99 and the Blu-Ray set is $39.99 (new on Amazon.com). True Blood: The Complete Second Season (HBO Series) [Blu-ray]
