Arrow Video will be releasing David Cronenberg’s cult sci-fi horror classic Videodrome on 4K Ultra HD later this October in the UK.
Videodrome (1983) was both written and directed by Cronenberg and stars James Woods, Sonja Smits, Deborah Harry, Peter Dvorsky, Les Carlson and Jack Creley.
I’ve added the original Videodrome trailer at the bottom of the page.

Arrow Video say this release is a “Brand new 4K restorations from the original camera negative by Arrow Films of both the full-length director’s cut and the US theatrical cut, approved by director David Cronenberg”.
