Probably issues with the music rights.

I liked Cybil Shepherd and Bruce Willis.

I hated this show.

But I am surprised it's not streaming, anywhere.

Seriously, I'm guessing he's referring to her closeups always being in such soft focus. Cybil is lucky that HD didn't exist in the 80's.

She was shot using diffusion disks to create a 1940s film look.

Not available for digital purchase either, which is crazy.

Re: Why isn't Moonlighting on TV, streaming?

The show is owned by ABC(ABC Films). The only other titles in ABC Films catalog are TV movies from early 70s. Except for the two Kolchak movies (Night Strangler/Night Stalker) none have seen the light of day since.
The Kolchak movies are always licensed by a third party for release. Moonlighting was licensed by Lionsgate for DVD and went of out print probably when the license expired.
Are the Kolchak movies available for streaming or digital purchase?

Moonlighting should be viewed as independently owned by a company not interested in the distribution of their catalog. Should somebody approach them with an offer to distribute it on disc or streaming they'll make a deal.
