I guess I must be naiive but I am a bit perplexed with the behaviour of the TV rights holders of TV shows. What has prompted this is the attrocious state of Rhoda with incomplete prints and poor quality video and sound. I've raised a separate thread because the issue relates to any TV property; Rhoda is just one example. If I owned TV shows such as Rhoda, Lou Grant, Hawaii Five-O, The Fugitive etc; I would have thought it would have been in my own best interest to have decent complete prints available for sale to TV stations around the world. With more and more channels moving to High Definition, surely you would want to be able to sell something in high quality. What TV station would buy a series in attrocious unbroadcastable quality? At least CBS/Paramount (for all their faults) are remastering everything they can in HD. In addition Star Trek was produced in HD in both full and syndicated versions. I realise that something like Rhoda does not have the same fan base and popularity as Star Trek but surely no station would want to buy it in its current state; I am not talking about the DVD release here; just its sellability on the market.
