    Well, we don't have TSOD on a daily basis anymore, but they do come around once a week.

    And, here's their latest update

    https://www.facebook.com/tvshowsondvd/posts/10156218795366063

    A lot of shows announced in a week. A massive Fox dump... a disappointingly large MoD Fox dump.

    I guess someone can post this link weekly for those who don't do Facebook (like me, actually), or if anyone comes across some interesting release news, throw it here for all to marvel at.

    Thanks for posting the link. Boy, do I miss the website. I can count on 1 hand the websites I visit on a daily basis, and tvshowsondvd.com was one of them. Looking at that list, does FOX even do non-MOD releases anymore? And are they available somewhere else besides Amazon? Just curious about the possibility of being able to get pressed discs vs non.

    As far as I know, Fox's MoDs are all burned, not pressed.

    But then, I got a copy of Bob's Burgers season 5 that was pressed for some reason after 2-4 were burned and 5 was listed as MoD, so I can't say with any certainty just what they'll do.

    True, my Daniel Boone from Fox is "pressed" not "burned" even though stated as MOD. I think they purposely keep the terminology a bit open-ended for flexibility. In one case, they may see a cost benefit in doing an initial run of pressed then moving to burned, in another case they may start with burned, but in neither case do they want the consumer to assume pressed. From what I read, whether pressed or burned, MOD can still hold true since the company doing the manufacturing and fulfilling of the orders may not actually assemble the sets until an order is placed (i.e., still Made on Demand even when pressed).

    Yeah, it's very odd as to what you may get. With Last Man Standing, I received pressed for seasons 1 & 2, but burned for seasons 3 & 4; ordered them all at the same time.

    MOD means manufactured on demand. Meaning that they are made in small quantities and more are made as needed. These discs can be either pressed or DVD-R depending on what the studio decides. MOD does not mean DVD-R or BD-R. There is still a lot of confusion on this since the beginning of mod programs. This comes from the fact that for the 1st two years of MOD they were exclusively DVD-R. There are still many on facebook sites that believe Warner Archive Blu Rays are BD-R. They have never released a BD-R.
