The Sopranos - Trade Mag Rats Out Mobster DVD Plans for Season 5

Posted by David Lambert
Video industry trade magazine Video Business has a new report (registration required) about how HBO is promoting their TV-on-DVD releases with various ad campaigns. Along the way, the magazine dropped the following line about upcoming plans for DVDs of The Sopranos:
    ...the fifth season of The Sopranos will be released in the fourth quarter of 2005, shortly before that series returns for a sixth season in early 2006.

That's a long wait from the 4th Season DVD set, which at the time of this writing has been on the market for well over a year now. The stated schedule is entirely in keeping with HBO's normal plans of releasing the previous season on DVD just in time to promote the new season. The problem is, it doesn't work as well when the show takes a year-long hiatus. I would like to be the first to point out to HBO that this stinks: I'd like to have my copy of The Sopranos - The Complete 5th Season now, please!
