ABC Family and Scifi Original Movies??

Scifi and ABC Family produce alot of movies on TV. I know there are a couple on ABC Family I would like to have a DVD release and I also want to buy Darklight which debuts on Scifi in a few days. Has any movie to TV from Scifi or ABC Family ever been put to DVD and will they be releasing Darklight or any other ABC Family movie on DVD Soon?

Alot of Buffy,Angel, and Roswell Cast has made movies on ABC Family and Scifi and it would be nice to add more work to our collections?

I can't speak for ABC, but pretty much all of Sci-Fi's 'original' movies are not original at all, but are movies made independantly that would otherwise be 'straight to video' releases they buy the TV rights for. They all eventually hit DVD, if they haven't already.

I've been wondering this too... I would really like to have "See Jane Date" and "Cesetle in the City" on Real DVD's not the DVD-R's I recorded from TV.

First 4-5 seasons ran on Showtime. SG Atlantis is entirely theirs though.

Right. But that didn't stop Bonnie from trying to claim the first Stargate as theirs...
