Apologies if this is in the wrong section, but I figured streaming services were similar enough to home media.

After watching season 1 on Blu-ray, I've been craving more HD MacGyver. Poland (TV6) is already getting the remastered episodes, and I was really hoping that CBS All Access would have them as well... but no such luck.

How is it that CBS is sitting on seven seasons of remastered episodes and their premiere streaming service looks considerably worse than DVD? I posted a comparison on the MacGyver subreddit:

For shame, CBS. For shame.

I've wondered that myself. I would love to get the rest of the series in HD. I get that sales from the first season were low, but, to be honest, Season 3-6 were the best seasons. Sales would go up with those.

But, here in the US, none of the main streaming services stream MacGyver at all anymore. I'm not paying for CBS access just for low quality MacGyver episodes. I'd rather buy it on DVD and be done with it.

It's just more indication that CBS has absolutely NO idea about marketing.. or really, what they're doing in general.

I've always said CBS is like the Grandpa of broadcasting - old, stuck in its ways, struggling to understand and keep up with this new online world it's suddenly found itself in. That's why they still make TV shows that all feel like copies of each other and use a formula that's 20 years old.

The only up side is that there is a full series Blu-ray pack coming.
