I wonder if that means any of those shows not digitally remastered will be purposefully destroyed or are simply blocked from release??? I hope not!
I imagine many will not be remastered. As best we can tell a big company like CBS/Paramount has yet to go back and remaster multiple seasons of some of their most popular westerns & sitcoms from the late 50’s (HGWT, Rawhide, MTS). If they are going to let those languish, what does that tell you about some of their other, lesser known properties? Will they go so far as to destroy some of them? I would hope it wouldn’t come to that. But who knows for sure.
And I only used CBS as one example. They have actually been one of the better companies at remastering their older material. You can insert any of the large studios into this equation. They have all been guilty of letting many of their older series sit in the basement collecting dust.
