Subject: URGENT! CBS DVD moratorium delays future Bonanza releases

CBS has imposed a moratorium on their vintage TV shows that are on DVD. This started about two or three years back just after the release of season six, with a long delay until season seven was released much later and the same thing with the release of season eight. CBS put the shows on moratorium for an undisclosed period of time until they feel it's time to release a following season.; Bonanza, Gunsmoke, Rawhide, ditto, etc. No word from CBS on Bonanza season nine.

At this rate, it will take another five years for CBS to get out the 1967 to 1973 seasons of Bonanza. Gunsmoke can take up to another 10 years to get to the final season. My thanks to Andrew Klyde for supplying me with some of this information about the moratorium. I urgently ask that all fans contact CBS Home Entertainment at their website to request future Bonanza seasons be released on DVD. Thanks and take care.

I posted my request on CBS Entertainment that I am looking forward to future releases of Bonanza...I hope everyone responds...maybe a write in campaign is what we need to bolster support. Thanks for the heads up, Rick.

Please release Seasons 9-14 of Bonanza.
Mitch Vogel is the last remaining Cartwright, he should be able to enjoy the release too.
Why wait?
Bonanza fans have waited long enough.
Thanks-

Hello Rick,

You mentioned Rawhide but they already released all of the eight seasons. You can also buy the complete eight seasons in a nice box set. The link:

First time poster here.

I have all the sets so far - am anxiously awaiting the release of seasons 9 & up.

At least while we wait, we have the INSP channel finally showing 10, 11, and 12. Am hopeful they will also be showing 13 & 14 - will know that in the next few weeks!

Nothing like the quality of the digital transfers from the original films. Really hope CBS continues this quality product from such an outstanding show. Come on season 9!

It's beyond belief to hear of such petty corporate dictates! Aside from the fact that one can get the DVDs from Germany(!) (yes, with an English vocal option on them!), the decision makers perhaps have not stopped long enough to realize that the people who would normally buy these DVDs are from an older era, *and of limited number*. This means that major portion of potential buyers is slowly dying off! As such, any promise of future sales has a diminishing return quotient attached to it. Ergo, the longer it takes to produce the DVDs - the less of them will sell.
Wise up Hollywood moguls - make the DVDs while you still can sell them! Besides, it's the right thing to do; you're suppose to be in the entertainment business, not running emotional roughshod over an aging population (with perfectly good money!) who only wish for the return of quality viewing...
'Nuff Said!

Did CBS buy rights to Bonanza. As I recall it was NBC show.
