On Blu-ray Collecting: A Quick Update About ‘The Stand’ Blu-ray Set’s ETA

It’s mid-afternoon here in my corner of west-central Florida on Sunday, October 10, 2021. Except for the sound of the big TV out in the common room – Alfred, The Caregiver’s boyfriend of over a year, is watching the Paramount Network and he has the volume cranked up – the house is quiet. My bedroom door is closed and block out most noises, so even though it’s not as quiet as I would like, it’s tranquil enough.

This morning I received another email from Amazon regarding my order of the Blu-ray version of the 2020-2021 CBS All-Access (now Paramount+) limited series The Stand. If what it says is accurate, and I have no reason to think otherwise, I will receive my three-disc Blu-ray set by this time next week.

This is what Amazon told me this morning:


We have an updated delivery estimate for your Amazon order. As soon as your items ship, we’ll send you an email confirmation. To view the status of your order or make changes, please go to Your Orders.

Delivery Estimate Details

New estimated delivery date:

Friday, October 15, 2021

Previous estimated delivery date:

Sunday, October 17, 2021 – Saturday, October 23, 2021

(C) 2020, 2021 CBS Studios/Paramount Home Media Distribution

 I can only guess, but it seems as though shipments of The Stand are on their way to retailers’ warehouses and will be sent to distribution centers throughout the U.S. early this week. That would explain the new estimated delivery date.

Well, considering that the original release date was originally the first week of November, I say that this delay, as unwelcome as it was initially, wasn’t so bad.
