    The home video rights are mired in uncertainty and when interested parties have inquired about the show, they were told to not even ask.

    Hulu, however, has a pretty good variety of classic TV, including some black and white. Dennis the Menace, Father Knows Best (they look to be cut version, sadly), the PD episodes of The Beverly Hillbillies (they do include the original music, though), The Twilight Zone, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, and probably others I can't think of. The majority of their classics stream in HD. I really couldn't tell you about their movie selection. I tried watching a John Wayne movie and immediately turned it off due to it being pan and scan.

    Unless I’m mistaken, only this set and a June release of Waterfront are what we have on tap for b/w tv thus far in 2019.

    Gary “not a great start to the year, announcement wise” O.

    Problem with Hulu is they moved Dragnet 1966-70 into their live tv service. Can’t watch even though I used to be able to. Also only seasons 1-2 of Mister Ed

    That's far from the complete series. Info is sketchy as to how many were made but it varies from 39 to 69, depending on the source used.

    I can't say anything under penalty of death, but I can say that there are a few shows which may happen that would please a great many of us here.

    Perhaps some of these shows may be hinted at with future entries in your "Crystal Ball Time" forum entries, Neil?

    Why not just watch Knight Rider on the NBC app. They're free. Tubi TV app has A-Team. all for free.

    Hence the need to have physical media. Because streaming services will become as big as the cable companies. Eventually, the streaming companies will be as high priced as cable. It’s already happening

    It looks like Mill Creek is re-releasing their Adventures Of Robin Hood Series which starred Richard Greene . A good nineteen fifties black and white action and adventure show and beloved by baby-boomers. It's worth checking out if you've never seen it.
    Oh , and MPI is releasing a complete seasons 1-5 Donna Reed Show Box Set a good black and white sitcom.
