DVD Is a Lot Better
Fans who streamed the show online complained about the foggy locations used in shooting the show and the difficulty in properly seeing many of those scenes. Most of the locations usually looked quite dim and misty. And, of all the seasons, season 8 caused the most controversy among fans. They weren't pleased with the ending of the show, the sound quality of the series, and there always seemed to be some background noise which affected the quality of the audio.
That's not all, most episodes in the final season had a poor picture quality when streamed online. Fans were fed up with the bad sounds and dark pictures, as it made it very hard for them to see or hear what exactly was going on. The producers of the film were aware of all the complaints, so when they released the entire series onto DVD they attempted to fix all of those issues.
Most of the disturbances that happened during live streaming are because of equipment problems and signal loss during live broadcasting. Fans can now watch Game of Thrones without all these disturbances. The DVD set has been carefully edited by HBO, as they didn't take the time to fix the issues with the seasons when they were streamed online.
However, buying the DVD set comes with its own challenges. If you own a TV that is not HD, it may struggle to cope with the black levels of the DVD display. You may end up seeing grey sequences on your screen instead of black if you have an older tube style TV. In order to enjoy the DVD set properly, you may need to get an HD television. This is important because there are a lot of dark scenes in Game of Thrones so, if your TV cannot correctly display this level of darkness with high picture quality, you may miss many parts of some of the most exciting scenes. This means that any issue you may experience while watching the DVD version is likely from your television or your personal computer. The DVD also comes with a significant improvement in color, as the physical appearance of the characters looks more real.
Even though the DVD comes with a mix of Dolby and Atmos, it is advisable to convert to the Atmos option if you have a great sound system. If you want to properly enjoy watching the show on DVD, you should go have a quality sound system, as they can make all the difference. Whether it is the clashing of swords at the Battle of Winterfell or Daenerys Targaryen's dragons breathing down fire, you need great speakers to enjoy all the amazing sound effects.
The best way to enjoy the greatest show in the history of TV is by buying the DVD collection, using a good sound system for great audio, and an HD TV that effectively portrays the excellent picture quality. Once you have all this, you're in for a treat!
