Default Facts of Life Season 6 - 9 on DVD Questions Cleared Up

Hey all,

This is no April fools joke and I hate to bear bad news. I had heard rumours Shout does not have rights to release the rest of the series on DVD. And you all may be thinking I am making up such a story, but indeed the rumor is true and will be posted to our Facts of Life Site soon. Here was their direct response to my inquiry.


Hi -

We would love to continue to release future seasons of The Facts of Life.
But as of this moment, we do not have licensing rights.

Please check back in a few months. Hopefully something will change.

And we will forward you title suggestions along to our Acquisitions Dept as well.

Sorry we had to bring not so good news.

Our site is re-launching in the coming months.
That may be a good time to check.
http://www.shoutfactory.com/

Thanks for the query and suggestions,

Shout! Factory

Maybe Sony will release the rest of the series on their MOD calendar since I think Shout did very well............ It looks like it's on stall again folks.....

I actually saw that on their message boards last week. Very disappointed. Hopefully they will be able to work something out and get the rest of them out at least by 2014 at the latest. If not, then I will just have to buy the bootlegs on ioffer.

I'm not too worried about this. It's happened before with Shout and then they are able to strike a deal. So I'm sure we will see more FOL in the near future. They also informed us that "Hazel" was not available to them. Then, a few months later, they announced they had acquired the rights to release it. So, don't lose hope just yet...

I expect they were testing the waters so to speak. If sales were to their satisfaction then they will probably try to make a deal to license the remaining seasons.

I was trying to find a contact email from Sony this weekend and I can't find one! its so frustrating because I want to ask them why they are holding back. I think we should all bombard Sony with constant emails!! you know, since shout factory doesn't have the rights to the show anymore

I looked for a contact too but couldn't find one. If you find one please post it here.

I have enough different email addresses to "vote" more than once.

I went on Google to see if I could find there email. I don't know if this is what you guys are looking for but I found a page to Email Sony Support. http://esupport.sony.com/perl/support-contacts.pl I also saw allot of searches where people were saying that they didn't get any email reply's from Sony that it's a waste of time to email them. But it's worth a try I guess, I just think it's stupid of Sony to keep the rights to FOL and not sell the rest of the seasons. I mean there not making any money by not selling it so there not doing themselves any favors, so why keep it, that's what I don't understand. Unless Sony is trying to see if they can get a good deal from some other company and maybe that's the reason Shout doesn't have the rights yet they probably don't want to buy it at the price Sony wants for it and Sony won't bargain.
