I wish there was a program for pre-purchasing these yet to be released seasons on dvd through Sony. Therefore they are guaranteed the money prior to manufacturing the discs. This would probably make sense from a business stand point, where they would only produce a small limited run for us, the niche audience. Sony would be guaranteed the money through the "Pre-Purchase Program" and have an estimate of what funds would be available to produce these limited releases. This would also greatly benefit Sony in the PR department, highlighting the fact that they are dedicated to their audience. This is just an idea that I had and would love to see come to fruition, from a business standpoint, I am not sure if it is at all possible for Sony or any company for that matter to accomplish.
I'm sure it is wishful thinking on my part. What do you think Scott? Is there someone at Sony, this could be pitched to?

I think any idea that helps get this material released is worth a shot. I'd worry that not enough people would pre-order though -- proving to Sony that it's not going to do well. Laughing

I'm assuming that they'd need a much larger advance sale than any of us could guarantee. Plus, I *think* they get advance sales orders from retailers when they announce a title to the trades, too. But what do I know? I was 100% Season 3 was being released on June 29.

BTW: I heard from a friend that was talking with Sony (about an unrelated project). He was told that the PF was pulled from their release schedule. So, the chatter suggesting the initial information I provided was false is just not true.

Thank you for that bit of information, Scott. So, the PF S3 was on the schedule but has been removed. Any idea why they had second thoughts?

Sorry, Scott. I forgot for a moment that you always share whatever information you have when you have it concerning DVD releases. My faux pas for asking a follow-up question. Embarassed

Scott, I appreciate your thoughtful response. I would love to see this mentioned to Sony, because I will get as many people as I know to pre-purchase these disks, as I am sure most of the fans on this site will do the same.
