      Dream team

      Will sky one's dream team ever come out on DVD. Have you any plans for it, if not why not. The show was the best TV drama ever. I've have asked around and there is a lot of demand for it. Will you ever bring it onto a dvd boxset.

      The problem is that Sky may not have the DVD rights to it.

      Sky so not actually make any programs, they just commission the program off an independant TV company and give them some money to go and make it and usually the production company still retains the DVD rights.

      It was highlighted when the new controller of Sky One tried to kill Hogfather by cutting the budget by 50% (new TV execs always try and kill projects that wasn't their idea).

      The production company had to rush over to the US and see several big US networks for the extra money and they raised the money by selling off the DVD rights. Stupidly enough Hogfather won 2 Baftas and made Fox a ton of money on the DVD sales. Sky saw very little profit.

      Even now The Colour of Magic and Going Postal are distributed by Fox not Sky.

      So in short Dream Team DVD rights may be held up somewhere that is out of Sky's control.
