The Shield Seasons 1-5 (R1) in March

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of The Shield Seasons 1 – 5 on 25th March 2008. Previously released in the US through Fox, Sony have now picked up distribution rights to the gritty crime drama series and are issuing their own versions in March (and we assume the Fox releases will go out of print).

Content appears to be identical in terms of extras, though the episodes are now presented in 1.78:1 Anamorphic Widescreen just like the UK Sony DVD releases (the Fox releases were 1.33:1, which is the intended ratio and how the show is broadcast on US TV).
