The Wire: Season 5 DVDs

Frustrating!

I really really like the HBO show The Wire. I’ve watched the first four seasons over the past few months, mostly on DVD, and season 5, which is the final season, just aired this winter.

I want to watch it, but I can’t find any place to do so! I can’t even find anywhere that will tell me when I will be able to watch it! Release dates much?

You would think that in the 21st century, they would have this worked out. I’d be willing to pay a pretty reasonable sum just to watch this content that has already been produced, and no one is offering me the chance to take me up on that!

I’m trying to think of incentives for this. Perhaps HBO thinks that this delay (between the end of a show and its release on DVD or online) causes more people to subscribe so that they don’t have to wait. Or, it could be that it simply takes time to produce the DVD (though if this were the case, I assume release dates would be available, at least).

Does anyone know the TV business better than me, and can tell me why I can’t watch this content I desperately want to?
