Cult Favorite ‘UHF’ Makes 4K UHD Debut with 35th Anniversary Edition from Shout! Studios

For nearly five decades, multiple   Grammy  and Emmy award-winning musician and satirist “Weird Al” Yankovic has been entertaining audiences worldwide with his parodies of songs by the biggest stars in the musical universe, as well as his many appearances on television, film, and the concert stage. This July, his cult classic film UHF will make its 4K UHD debut as a two-disc 4K UHD + Blu-ray 35th Anniversary Edition from Shout! Studios. The standard release includes a new 4K scan of the original 35mm camera negative, audio commentary with “Weird Al” Yankovic and director Jay Levey, the retrospective panel from San Diego Comic-Con 2014, deleted scenes, behind the scenes footage, easter eggs, and more!

Fans who order directly from Shout! Studios will have the option to purchase an exclusive edition of the release bundled with a plethora of new extras. Available in three different configurations, these editions include the two-disc 4K UHD along with various combinations of a site-exclusive o-card with new illustration, posters of both original theatrical art and new illustration art, brand-new Scratch-n-Sniff card for the movie, a TV remote stress squeezer, prism sticker of Weird Al, an enamel pin set, and a Spatula City fridge magnet. For more info and to pre-order, please visit ShoutStudios.com

In the cult classic UHF, “Weird Al” Yankovic is George Newman, a hopeless daydreamer who becomes the manager of a small TV station that’s losing money as quickly as it’s losing viewers. Before long he’s programming shows like “Stanley Spadowski’s Clubhouse”, “Wheel of Fish”, and “Raul’s Wild Kingdom.” But can Channel 62’s new popularity save it from sinister forces? To find out… don’t touch that dial! Starring “Weird Al” Yankovic (WEIRD: The Al Yankovic Story), Michael Richards (Seinfeld), Kevin McCarthy (Invasion of the Body Snatchers), Fran Drescher (The Nanny), Gedde Watanabe (Sixteen Candles), Victoria Jackson (Saturday Night Live), and more!
